I currently have the 3s and 64 bit versions of java. This is causing some errors, and I want to get rid of the 32 bit version. What do I do to get rid of it?


Refer to location /usr/lib/jvm and find the 32-bit folder by reading its docs and readme etc. Then remove the folder of 32-bit Java version. you must have to be root to remove.

Also remove the environement variable path of 32-bit Java, type env at Terminal and see JAVA_HOME and similar to this one. For example if you want to remove JAVA_HOME_32, you would type at terminal with root permission.

env --unset=JAVA_HOME_32

  • I can't find the 32 bit folder, where is it normally located – kookman98 Feb 9 '14 at 21:48
  • Never mind, when trying java -d32 in the terminal, it says it isn't available. I must have uninstalled it. – kookman98 Feb 9 '14 at 21:51
