I am currently using Ubuntu Gnome 14.10 64bit. I have never before installed software from source.
I want to install the java plugin for chrome for running applets and all. I presently need it for downloading youtube videos from keepvids. I downloaded the jre-7u55-linux-x64.tar.gz file from oracle.
tar -xzvf jre-7u55-linux-x64.tar.gz cd jre1.7.0_55 ./configure
But I get:
bash: /.configure: No such file or directory
The readme file there doesn't contain any information about installation only license info..
Can anyone help me how to install it correctly(i am pretty comfortable with the terminal) and ADD it to GOOGLE CHROME...What else do i have to do? Please help. Thanks in advance.
