Java – .jar Error 127 /bin/sh: javac: not found.

If you’re getting a similar error to this while trying to compile java files (.jar) then you’re probably missing the jdk, in ubuntu it’s called “sun-java6-jdk” so just go ahead and install that and all should be good!

make[1]: Entering directory `/home/alex/kinect/OpenNI/Platform/Linux-x86/Build/Wrappers/OpenNI.java’
javac -d Release ../../../../../Wrappers/OpenNI.java/src/org/OpenNI/*.java
/bin/sh: javac: not found
make[1]: *** [../../../Bin/Release/org.OpenNI.jar] Error 127
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/alex/kinect/OpenNI/Platform/Linux-x86/Build/Wrappers/OpenNI.java’
make: *** [Wrappers/OpenNI.java] Error 2

FIX:

sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk

HowTo: Run .jar files in Ubuntu

To run a JAR file from the command line in ubuntu using the following command:

java -jar filename.jar

Otherwise it is also possible to enable double clicking to run jar files too by the following simple steps:

  1. Find the .jar file in the File Browser (a.k.a Nautilus)
  2. Right click the .jar file > Properties
  3. Click on the “Open With” tab along the top
  4. Change the bullet to be Sun Java 6 Runtime
  5. Click Close and you’re done.

Now you should be able to just double click the file and it will run just like most other files!
