install java jdk on linux

January 7th, 2014

Here's the steps if you want to install java on linux:

wget <path to jre-7u25-linux-x64.rpm> -P /tmp
rpm -ivh /tmp/jre-7u25-linux-x64.rpm
mkdir -p /root/.mozilla/plugins
rm -f /root/.mozilla/plugins/libnpjp2.so
ln -s /usr/java/jre1.7.0_25/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so /root/.mozilla/plugins/libnpjp2.so
ll /root/.mozilla/plugins/libnpjp2.so


  • You'll need to install jre i386 version if your firefox browser is 32 bits. And you can install jre6 from here. You should download packages like "jre-6u33-linux-i586-rpm.bin" and run chmod +x jre-6u33-linux-i586-rpm.bin && ./jre-6u33-linux-i586-rpm.bin after that. You may locate¬†/usr/java/jre1.6.0_33/bin/javaws for opening remote console when prompted.
  • If you want to install java plugin of firefox on linux, or even install firefox under linux, then you can refer to this¬†article.
Good Luck!
