Sorry for flooding you guys with these questions, but I can't seem to find any answers when i look on or, but everytime i try and open a crossword in this case online i get this grey square with in it printed Error: java executeable file not found, what do I do?

try installing java


howto is here on





:) hey i was having problems with the installing of limewire because the installer says no java installed so with the help of Randall in the irc channel i did a softlink in the /bin directory to java like this


i was in the /bin directory as su and then i typed

ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_05/bin/java .


do not forget the final dot and it did a softlink (link in windows ) to java because i had my java installed at /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_05/bin/java


then i go and run the limewire client installer and it worked just fine !!!!
