Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

When I logged in after successfully installing jdk 1.8.0_05 on Ubuntu 14.04 it says:

:unable to launch
"PATH=/usr/local/sbin ...... X session ---
PATH=/usr/local/bin:.......:/usr/lib/java/jdk1.8.0_05/bin not found;
falling back to default session.

And then shows empty desktop. Although I was able to login using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS ubuntu tty1 using Ctrl+alt+F1.

Please suggest what to do.
