I switched to linux (Ubuntu 12.04) this morning and find it great but messed up while installing java. :-(.
I have installed jdk6.0_6 successfully but when I run java command in terminal, I get this
ravi@ravi-LIFEBOOK-AH531:~$ java The program 'java' can be found in the following packages: * default-jre * gcj-4.6-jre-headless * openjdk-6-jre-headless * gcj-4.5-jre-headless * openjdk-7-jre-headless Try: sudo apt-get install <selected package>
Could someone help me with this?
Below are the steps that I followed to install:
- copied file named
jdk-6u6-linux-x64.binto my documents
- from terminal executed
chmod a+x jdk-6u6-linux-x64.bin
- and then executed
- In terminal I accepted the license agreement and done.
