Updating java linux

wget --header "Cookie: oraclelicense=accept-securebackup-cookie" sudo mkdir /opt/jdk sudo tar -zxf jdk-8u71-linux-x64gz -C /opt/jdk/ rm jdk-8u71-linux-x64gz Ubuntu 13.10 is end-of-live and has been since July of 2014.

Maybe they left the packages on the server for a while, but they are gone now.

The best thing to do is installing a supported release of Ubuntu.

First remove every openjdk package including icedtea-plugin: sudo apt-get update && apt-get remove openjdk-6-jre Because libreoffice needs openjdk, your mint linux will automatically install openjdk-7 dependencies. Just because you can and it's recommended: sudo apt-get autoremove && apt-get clean All unnecessary packages will be removed.

Copy/Paste or type the following line of code into Terminal and then press enter: 3.

Download the java package for linux on com and store the file in the folder Downloads.

(if you have Linux x64, download the x64 bit package, do not download the RPM!! In your terminal, run the command thats create a new subfolder in the directory sudo update-alternatives --install "/usr/bin/java" "java" "/opt/java/64/jre1.7.0_09/bin/java" 1 sudo update-alternatives --set java /opt/java/64/jre1.7.0_09/bin/java 1.

Make for every user in his home directory a subfolder: mkdir -v ~/.mozilla/plugins 2.

Create a symbolic link, so Firefox knows where to find the java plug-in.

ln -s /opt/java/64/jre1.7.0_09/lib/amd64/libnpjp2~/.mozilla/plugins/ 3. Now you have to restart the browser and check in Firefox if the installation has been succeeded.

Type in the browser: about:plugins A good thing to do is to set a maximum amount of disk space for the cache.

/opt/java/32/jre1.7.0_09/bin/Control Panel /opt/java/64/jre1.7.0_09/bin/Control Panel Click on settings under temporary Internet files and set amount the disk space to 50MB. Here is a more complete version: This version: * Allows for easy updating * Updates more of the various jdk executables (ie: jar, keytool, servertool, etc) * Has a fancy helper tool to help with the 'update-alternatives' commands!

* Does not allow for multi-versioning by default but you can modify the guide to make it so The procedure presented by xfrank works fine. To install Java without going to the terminal this is what I did (I have LMDE 64bit): Just added few minor tweaks (working fine in Linux 16.0 Mate).
