Today, I downloaded the latest java
jre which is a .bin file
By mistake, I installed it on my desktop by running
./jre. I want to remove this installation, move the .bin file to somewhere else and install it again
sudo apt-get remove --purge jre gives
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Virtual packages like 'jre' can't be removed 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 19 not upgraded.
Note: I can't use synaptic package manager, here's why, so I have to do everything from the terminal until the problem gets fixed.
The folder where the JRE is located is called jre.
just installed java jre
sudo echo 'deb http://www.duinsoft.nl/pkg debs all' >> /etc/apt/sources.list sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 5CB26B26 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install update-sun-jre
it's the latest version. so i just have now to remove the .bin file and the extracted jre folder, would your method still works?
and could you please tell me why to use open jdk over jre sir?
