Hi all,

i'm trying to install JGR on linux (see bottom), but it runs into errors.
The bottom of the sequence below shows "JavaJD could not be found"

Any suggestion, please?

$ sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk

$ sudo update-alternatives --config java

There are 5 alternatives which provide `java'.

+ 5 /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-icedtea/jre/bin/java

$sudo R CMD javareconf
