    Default i tried to install java in linux & messed up

    Hi
    i tried to install java manually
    i just ran the bin file of java that i downloaded
    it extracted some files to a directory
    & to some places into the system
    but i didn't have java in my browser
    so i deleted the directory
    how to remove the other files it copied to other places in the system?

    anyway after that i ran:
    sudo apt-get install xubuntu-restricted-extras
    to install java
    & it didn't worked too
    so - how to remove that too?


    & how to install java on my usb stick from which i run xubuntu...?

    You might have more luck on the well supported ?ubuntu community forums as this is not really a Java question. You will find it helpful to elaborate a little on "it didn't worked too" if asking about apt-get. People will want to know precisely what you did, and what *did* happen when you did that.

    In general - too late for this stable! - you would be well advised *not* to merely delete directories when you want to uninstall something. Generally software comes with uninstall procedures and documentation.

    Your problem relates to Ubuntu, not to Java. These forums are for Java.

    Off topic, closing.
