I have been trying to install Oracle Java 7 on Ubuntu 11.04. I was following the instructions given here
Once I followed all the steps ( to the letter ), I tried running
which gave the expected output. But running
did not give the expected output. Instead I get the following error:
Error : Could not find libjava.so Error : Could not find Java SE Runtime Environment
The environment variable PATH contains both /usr/local/java/jre/bin and /usr/local/java/jdk/bin, LD_LIBRARY_PATH points to /usr/local/lib which contains libjava.so which is currently owned by the user who I am running javac as. In addition, JAVA_HOME points to the jdk folder. Inspite of all this, javac is unable to find the libjava.so file. There are multiple solutions online but none seem to work for me. Even a direct run
results in the same error.
