i recently tried installed java 7 on ubuntu 12.04 and i think i screwed something up
I followed the instructions given here.
First you need to remove openjdk for this run the following command from your terminal sudo apt-get purge openjdk* Now you can install Java7 by adding the following repository: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:eugenesan/java sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer
Now everytime i install a new program i get the following error:
Download done. sha256sum mismatch jdk-7u3-linux-x64.tar.gz Oracle JDK 7 is NOT installed. dpkg: error processing oracle-java7-installer (--configure): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1 Setting up python-central (0.6.17ubuntu1) ... Setting up python-eggtrayicon (2.25.3-11) ... Setting up gmail-notify (188.8.131.52-1ubuntu1) ... Processing triggers for python-central ... Errors were encountered while processing: oracle-java7-installer Error in function:
However.The program seems to install and work just fine so it doesn't seem to be a problem preventing me from doing anything
So then i reinstalled openjdk by going:
sudo apt-get install openjdk*
But i still get the same error.
sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer gives me the same error.
What is going on?
Please let me know if this is clear or not and ill try to explain my issue better
