[Solved] Java installer script failed

Hi everyone,

I was installing Bunsen Helium to a new (for me) computer, and everything went well except that the Java runtime installation script crashed and failed to complete. (I later downloaded OpenJDK 8 and installed it manually).

Re: [Solved] Java installer script failed

Were you installing from the bl-welcome screens? If so what were the error messages? ( ~/.cache/bunsen-welcome/bl-welcome.log)

What errors do you get with

sudo apt-get install bunsen-meta-java

NB As a general point, saying "it crashed" is not helpful. More information, and any and all error messages are pretty much essential.

EDIT It seems that the icedtea plugin has been removed from stretch. This is a dependency of bunsen-meta-java, so that is why it failed when I tried it in a Helium VM.

Re: [Solved] Java installer script failed

Thanks for replying damo. Yes, I did try to install Java from the bl-welcome screens, and here's what happened;

------------------------------[ page 6 of 15 ]--------------------------------

  INSTALL JAVA SUPPORT
  --------------------
 
  By default, BunsenLabs does not come with a Java Runtime Environment. Would you
  like to install Java support now?
 
  If you choose to do this, the following packages will be installed:
 
      bunsen-meta-java
 
  Note: additional packages listed as dependencies will also be installed.
 
  Would you like to install Java Support? [y/N]
Reading package lists...
Building dependency tree...
Reading state information...
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
bunsen-meta-java : Depends: icedtea-8-plugin but it is not installable
 
  There were problems installing bunsen-meta-java



I also tried to run "apt-get install bunsen-meta-java", and this was the result;

I hope this helps. I later installed Java manually so it worked out well in the end.

Re: [Solved] Java installer script failed

Have you fixed your broken packages?
if not, i think

apt install -f

should do it.

This is a known problem; will push a fix without the icedtea dependency.

Should be fixed now (after apt-get update).

Sure, I've just done it. Sorry for the delay but I'm still learning my way round the forum and how things are done here.
