I have jdk-6u32-linux-x64.bin saved on my "Home" location. When I open the terminal to extract and run the .bin, I get a "No such file or directory" error. I've searched around and can't seem to find anything to fix this. See below for attempted commands:

root@anon-K52F:~# ./jdk-6u32-linux-x64.bin

-bash: ./jdk-6u32-linux-x64.bin: No such file or directory

root@anon-K52F:~# chmod +x jdk-6u32-linux-x64.bin

chmod: cannot access ‘jdk-6u32-linux-x64.bin’: No such file or directory

I am running Ubuntu 14.04.3

If anyone has any insight on this, please let me know.

  • Try checking with ls if you really have that file with that name OR Try entering j and then pressing Tab twice to see a list of all files and folders starting with j. It may be that you are misspelling the filename. – Ashhar Hasan Dec 12 '15 at 8:40

    On second thought, whose Home is that (where the file is)? There are different homes for root users and normal users. – Ashhar Hasan Dec 12 '15 at 8:41

No such file or directory simply means there is no such file named jdk-6u32-linux-x64.bin in your current working directory.

BTW, Oracle Java (JDK) 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 is available to install from WebUpd8-team's PPA

  1. Open a terminal and enter:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
  2. To pull down the latest list of packages from the PPA you just added:

    sudo apt-get update
  3. To install JDK 6

    sudo apt-get install oracle-java6-installer

But this requires a working internet connection.
