   Returning to Java, I have installed the one from the Sun web site.
It is an rpm with a wrapper that allows them to force you to sign

   I want java so I can load jedit so I can write to the wiki at the
Fedora Doc's site. It is supposed to be simple. The jedit site said do

$ jar jedit4.3pre12install.jar

but alas there is no active jar on my Fedora. Earlier Fedora it worked
but on F8 it doesn't.

What have I done wrong?

I don't know what you did wrong.  But on my F8 system I did install
Sun's jdk (jdk-6u3-linux-i586.rpm)
and there is /usr/bin/jar.

   I looked and no /usr/bin/jar but there is a /usr/bin/java which lead
to gij which seems to work but not. It did this:

[karl k5di Desktop]$ gij jedit4.3pre12install.jar
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError:

It appears that the jedit file may be bad.




If you are doing a default x86 Sun JDK install, you will find the
distributables in /usr/java/jdk.../bin directory. If you are using Java
6 then you should also see /usr/java/default and /usr/java/latest
symlinks pointing to the Java6 directory.

You could add /usr/java/default/bin to your path (either by modifying
/etc/profile file, or in any other file that you use to setup your

Now, you should be able to run whatever command that you wanted to run:
	java -jar XYZ.jar

Hi Rogue, I would never guessed the above. Turns out you need to be using a root login. But I have the jEdit installed but now reading the man page to see how to do it :-)

Thank you so much. I was sure that having no /usr/bin/jar meant I did something wrong. But the new stuff takes new ways. Thanks a lot!
