Hey guys! i just started using Linux and i want to use Ubuntu to run a minecraft sever.
the problem is when i do the Java-file thingy in the terminal it says i dont have java installed.
I can open the java Control Panel so it must be installed! i am new to liunx.

What does
  1. java -version
in a terminal return? If it's not something from Sun, you may need to install the version from them to get the Minecraft server to run (unsure if there are issues trying to use one of the open java VMs, a while back there were issues running Eclipse using anything but the one from Sun)

In general, you may want to refer to this guide for more information on Java configuration on Ubuntu.
