java update

Asked by glenn caughill on 2011-09-03

The java was working fine on download helper, then an up date messed it up, now it seems to be missing some kind of component.

I managed to download the java tar.gz, 10. whathever.

Its in the archaive manager in a usr...... libflashplayer. file. how do i get it to install from here?

The the java fix it tool says I don't have Java, I would have to, or I could not watch video.

the problem is every download program I have tried says that java is missing a component.

Download helper works about every 4 time but not like it used to.

The preferences menu where you are suposed to register the product and set the download stile.

that page isant there and it downloads in mp4 by defalt.

that ok with me.

but it is working less and less and now u-tube says it wants a java up date.

fine how do i get it out of the archive manager.

Is your issue with Java or Flash?I don't know any sites using Java for video....

Just an FYI, the Java license has changed and oracle don't want their Java product packaging so it needs manually installing.

yes it is using flash, and the video does work it just when i try to use
download helper, it tells me that java is missing a componant, the same is
true with all other download applications. Download helper states to go to
preferences, check conversions enabled, the next page where you set the
conversion simply isan't there. I was trying to install java but i have
never gotten pass the archive manager,

try:

cd; wget -O java http://javadl.sun.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=52240; sudo mv ./java /opt; cd /opt; sudo chmod +x ./java; sudo ./java; rm ./java; cd

You now have java installed. If you can give the output of:

sudo find /opt -iname "libnpjp2.so"

I can get it linked to your web browser, but java things should work
