July 20th, 2012 by Regaz



The Guide Shows You Step-by-Step How-to Install and Getting-Started with the Latest Oracle-Sun Official Java JDK 7 32bit Release for Fedora Linux 17 KDE4 i686 Desktop.

After Installing you will need to Use the update-alternatives Tool to Update your System Java to Sun SE JDK 7.

Especially relevant: At the Same Time I’m also Illustrating here the Easiest Way of Installing the New Downloaded .rpm Packages with Dependencies on Fedora 17 KDE4 Desktop :)

The Screenshots of Installation Correspond to the Install on a Fedora 17 KDE Desktop but the Procedure on Gnome, XFCE… Should be Near Identical.

Following the Easiest and Practicable Way I have Expressly Excluded the Use of Terminal Commands here.

So Take the Time of Carefully Reading and Executing the Instructions Contained Here and All should Work Like a Breeze.

    We Suppose that you Browser like Firefox will Prompt you About the Downloading Procedure to Follow like Here.

    To Switch of Java Version Just Enter the Reference Number on First Column. :)

  6. Optionally Set Java Environment Variable
