Have you tried the instructions from this website?… – owl Feb 10 '13 at 3:59
Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Per the FAQ, Ask Ubuntu is not a place for reporting bugs. Please visit the FreeMind project page to report your bug. – InkBlend Feb 10 '13 at 3:59
@InkBlend This might not be a bug issue, it might be just mis-configuration by the user. – owl Feb 10 '13 at 4:02

Type this in terminal

ln -s /usr/bin/java /opt/java/32/jre1.6.0_30/bin/java

Now, run your program.
