If you want to use the newest Java applications, you need to get Java 6. If you have Java 5 installed and running Azureus from fesity repos be warned that it doesn't play nice with Java 6. But the reason I moved to Java 6 is to install newest version on Azureus, the one in the repos bugs me and the newer one has added functionality and stability.
To install Java 6 and the browser plugin for mozilla:
sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin
Replace old version of Java with new:
sudo update-java-alternatives -s java-6-sun
Tell your system to use Java 6:
sudo gedit /etc/jvm
Then type this into the top of the file:
save file and close it
File should look similar to this:
# This file defines the default system JVM search order. Each
# JVM should list their JAVA_HOME compatible directory in this file.
# The default system JVM is the first one available from top to
Now test to make sure everything is running right:
You should see this:
java version “1.6.0″ Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0-b105) Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.6.0-b105, mixed mode, sharing)
Now your running the latest version of Java and able to run the newest version of Azureus.
