I like to code and I do it a lot. I want to build software to save the planet. Passionate polyglot programmer, generalist with specialties. Code reviewer, unit tester, driver of change. I get things done.

I make free Android apps such as Programming Quiz, websites such as bashoneliners.com, and other open source stuff. I wrote a book on Bazaar Version Control, and an article on shell tips & tricks for Linux Journal.

I blog, tweet (@janosgyerik), and post "pro tips" on CoderWall.

comment How to remove an unsuccessful installation of Java 6
You want to give up completely, or you want to fix this installation? Repeating the apt-get install step might fix it. Or you could try to remove the broken package with apt-get remove --purge oracle-java6-installer

Can you switch to a virtual terminal with Control-Alt-F1 when it happens?

comment Shell Scripting
It looks like the line 1 of cadetkpgm2.sh is cadetkpgm2.sh. Check what's inside the file using cat cadetkpgm2.sh, because I think it's not what you think it is. After you fix the content of the file, bash cadetkpgm2.sh will run it. You can make it executable with chmod u+x cadetkpgm2.sh.

What's the error message? It probably tells you exactly what the problem is ;-)

Down to file permissions, group memberships, and application specific custom settings. Why do you ask?

Can root access that file? Maybe the file is in your encrypted home directory?
