Change Update Servers (Sources.list) on Ubuntu

Ubuntu Another quick note; Once I have installed Ubuntu, all my updates servers were pointing to tr.xxx sites and it was timing out. To change the list in Sources.list for software updates, the following can be used to remove prefixes (“tr” in my case to get to global update servers:

sudo sed -i ‘s/http:\/\/tr./http:\/\//g’ /etc/apt/sources.list

Good luck

Installing Java 8 on Ubuntu

Quick notes about installing Java 8 on Ubuntu 12.4 LTS. Option 2 is almost same for RHEL 7.1.

Option 1:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer

This unfortunately did not install the latest from Java for me so I moved to option 2 in may case but if it works for you, it is very easy to use that package and update.

Option 2: Manually

Download package from Oracle-Java site and extract it with tar. Then;

sudo mv jdk1.8.0_72 /usr/lib/jvm/

sudo update-alternatives –install "/usr/bin/java" "java" "/usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.8.0_72/jre/bin/java" 1
sudo update-alternatives –set java /usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.8.0_72/jre/bin/java

Firefox:

sudo update-alternatives –install /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/mozilla-javaplugin.so mozilla-javaplugin.so /usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.8.0_72/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so 1
sudo update-alternatives  –config mozilla-javaplugin.so

And if needed;

sudo update-alternatives –install "/usr/bin/javac" "javac" "/usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.8.0_72/bin/javac" 1
sudo update-alternatives –install "/usr/bin/javaws" "javaws" "/usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.8.0_72/jre/bin/javaws" 1

 

To choose versions;

sudo update-alternatives –config java
sudo update-alternatives –config javac
sudo update-alternatives –config javaws

Good luck.

  • vGPU: RHEL 7.1 Workstation x64 with NVIDIA Maxwell M60 graphics cards.

Just to prevent any confusion, Linux guest OS versions supported with Horizon 6.2.1 are;
