I recently upgraded Ubuntu to 12.04. I opened Firefox and it says Java plug-in 1.7.0_13 is outdated and vulnerable.
I followed the link here for installing Java for Linux platforms: http://www.java.com/en/download/help/linux_install.xml
I don't know what to do after this step:
"Unpack the tarball and install Java
tar zxvf jre-7u7-linux-i586.tar.gz
The Java files are installed in a directory called
jre1.7.0_07 in the current directory.
In this example, it is installed in the
.tar.gz file if you want to save disk space. "
Does this mean that it's installed? I don't think so, because I tried
java -version in the Terminal and it says the old 1.7.0_13.
Any help would be appreciated.
