One of my favorite programs, davmail, crashes now after upgrading to 11.10. Just checking if there is a quick fix before I submit a bug report. Thanks.

$ davmail

what version of davmail are you using..... I tried with the java-7-openjdk-amd64 and I still get an error. – user29665 Oct 21 '11 at 22:36

I solved by installing openjdk-7-jre, and then linking the /usr/bin/davmail script to use the JDK1.7 java binary.

Thanks! Seems to be working by me as well - was having trouble with it since I've upgraded to 11.10... – Laimoncijus Oct 21 '11 at 12:33

After installing openjdk7, do this:

sudo update-alternatives --set java /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-i386/jre/bin/java
