Hi, I am trying to run a jnlp through javaws in Ubuntu's built-in openJDK 6.0. My problem starts when my application does not work and throws an exception using the built-in java version. I have read that Ubuntu can only execute jnlp using jre 1.5, so I uninstalled openJDK and now I am trying to install JRE 5.0.
I am new to Ubuntu and don't know how to install a simple JRE in Ubuntu. I found no jre for i686 architecture so I downloaded jre for i586. I managed to extract the bin package but the system cannot recognize the bin executables. When I enter "java" in Terminal window, it displays the following "The program java can be found in the following packages:" It then points me to the built-in openJDK.
How do I install JRE 5 in Ubuntu to run a jnlp through javaws?
