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?
Why to use open jdk over jre?
