    ln -s [copiedJdkPath] default

    Ctrl+Shift+v to Paste the Path.
    And for JRE:

    ln -s [copiedJdkPath] default-runtime

    With this you Should be Done!

    Ctrl+x to Save & Exit :)

    nano /etc/profile.d/oracleJDK10.csh
    setenv J2SDKDIR=[copiedJdkPath]
    setenv J2REDIR=$J2SDKDIR/jre
