failed to launch jnlp application in 12.04 upgraded version

Asked by Pooja Saxena on 2012-09-28

Dear Experts,
I have using EVO (http://evo.caltech.edu/evoGate/) which is probably jnlp applicaion in 10.-4 version w/o any issue.
Now, I upgraded to 12.04 with the Upgrade option and it failed to launch.
I did google and probably insalled several jovaw software that now if I check the version of my java,
-------------------------
$java -vesion
bash: /usr/bin/javac: cannot execute binary file
------------------------

My firefox and other application are working all fine, but I can not launch EVO anymore.
It is causing trouble for my work.

Thanks in advance,
ps

Opp, Sorry just realized I cut the half info:

$ ls -la /usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.7.0_07/bin/javac
-rwxr-xr-x 1 uucp 143 7957 Aug 29 03:05 /usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.7.0_07/bin/javac

Thanks,

Well everybody has execute access to all the files, should be ok. Lets try oracle's java:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer

Pooja Saxena (nrjrasaxena) said : #8

Perfect, Thanks actionparsnip:-) It works fine.
I just wonder if there is any update/suggestion on my wireless issue.

Now, I can access the "Additional Driver", I am not sure if it might open
some
ways to resolve that further.

thanks again,
Pooja
