[SOLVED] Can't run Eclipse because no Java

A Java Runtime Environment (JRE) or Java Development Kit (JDK)
must be available in order to run Eclipse. No Java virtual machine
was found after searching the following locations:
/usr/share/eclipse/jre/bin/java
java in your current PATH

So I installed openjdk from repositories, and I still can't run it. Any ideas? Thanks.

Re: [SOLVED] Can't run Eclipse because no Java

Hi,
same message after installing?

Try

whereis java

to see where java is installed and look with

echo $PATH

if your system searches in the correct location

Java's not in the path that eclipse is searching, for some  reason.  Java will be in

[ ~]$ which java
/usr/bin/java

which will be in your $PATH if it's been installed from the repo:

[ ~]$ java -version
java version "1.7.0_09"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea7 2.3.3) (ArchLinux build 7.u9_2.3.3-1-i686)
OpenJDK Client VM (build 23.2-b09, mixed mode)

How did you install eclipse? The file list in the Extra repo doesn't have a "usr/share/eclipse/jre/bin" in it.

Re: [SOLVED] Can't run Eclipse because no Java

I installed eclipse from repos (pacman -S eclipse) and Java from repos (pacman -S jdk7-openjdk). "java" doesn't really exist. "which java" says java doesn't exist, right after I installed jdk7-openjdk from repos!

1. Always use -Syu when installing stuff.
2. log out/in

I actually -Syu twice a day so I didn't do that. Anyways, I redid it with -Syu (just in case), logged out, logged in, but:

That's "locate java" output.

Re: [SOLVED] Can't run Eclipse because no Java

I believe you also need jre7-openjdk, not just jdk7-openjdk. jre7-xxx is the actual "java" runtime.

JDK should contain JRE. I say its worth a shot though

It doesn't. Never has that I know of, anyway. It's two separate downloads from Oracle as well. (Even on Windows (bleacchh!).)

It wasn't, and installing it fixed it. When I installed it, it did say I was --reinstalling, though, quite odd, but it's fixed now, thanks guys!

The JDK download from Oracle does contain the JRE. There are 2 downloads because the other is just the JRE without the JDK.
