I downloaded the Java for Linux file and it's a .bin file. How would I install it? Please give me the commands with the following file name included:




Many thanks.

have you tried

chmod +x jre-6u3-linux-i586.bin


followed by

sh ./jre-6u3-linux-i586.bin




it depends, on what distro you use, with debian-based, you just in

apt-get update && apt-get install sun-java6-jre

and if you want the plugin, get 'sun-java6-plugin' with apt too!

otherwise you'll find the rpm, deb and source here: java-packages just follow the instruction and you're ready to go!


//edit: why is my codebox soo huge??? sorry about that!
