Want to install fresh jdk 6 for Android development. Before I had jdk 7 installed which I removed for fresh jdk 6 installation. Tried using the webupd repository way, not of use, tried downloading the jdk from oracle and then unzipping it, not of use.
I want to know if removing these listed packages will help?
java -version 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>
