Hi, sorry for the lack of knowledge, maybe this is a stupid question. Is it necessary to install java after installing Ubuntu for the correct operation of the system? I mean for a standard user who only uses the pc for some tricks and basic things.

  • No, although I don't know what is "a standard user who only uses the pc for some tricks and basic things". Can you state it less vaguely? May 29, 2020 at 19:01
  • By standard user I meant someone who only uses a PC to watch videos, listen to music, documents, etc. Although it may not be the ideal word. I like the command line and fiddle with settings to put the system as I please. I love Linux but I don't have much time to spend on the PC May 29, 2020 at 20:29

No it is not, and certainly not after a full install. I used Ubuntu for the past year without a need for Java until recently when I needed to install it for a Java programming course. Aside from that it never came up.

There are applications in the Software Centre that say they use Java, but I would assume if you install them the required Java libraries would be installed as dependancies.

If those "tricks" don't involve Java applications, no.

python is rather important in Ubuntu nowadays, but you can expect to have all applications and dependencies necessary for the OS' operation preinstalled.
