Java Updates with Ubermix
« on: August 08, 2014, 02:39:23 PM »
How does updating of Java work with Ubermix? Our district is working on a customized Ubermix for our high school students and especially need the Java for science and math simulations. If it needs to be updated, the obvious question is how - do we manually do it on the machine, or have to re-image with an image that has an updated version of Java, or is there another option?  Thanks!

Are you getting an error about java needing to be updated, or is something not working? If it is the latter, you can always install the official Oracle Java by following the directions here: http://forums.ubermix.org//index.php/topic,3.msg197.html#msg197

If you just want to update, you can open Synaptic, click Reload to update its indexes, and search for openjdk-7-jre . Or, from the command line, type:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jre

Thanks, Jim. We are just loading computers with Ubermix for the first time and wondered how the updating process worked. We'll follow your instructions and decide which is the easiest method to update if/when we get a message prompting us to update Java.
