  7. Was the version of make-jpkg-mustang ever updated for feisty?

  8. In Feisty JRE 1.6.0 is available in the Ubuntu repositories, in edgy its now also available in the Ubuntu backports repositores

  9. the correct syntax for update-alternatives is “sudo update-alternatives –config whatever”

    There are 2 “–”
    🙂

  10. Mare you are correct, but for some reason the 2 – – are rendered as one — , thanks for addressing this🙂

  13. And normal ppl would do:
    1)sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre
    2)cd /usr/lib/ferefox/plugins
    3)ln -s and so on from jre plugin dir…..

  14. Amazingly, using the latest build of mustang from the page (6.0.0.2 I think, from april 2007) as opposed to the version you can get from Feisty repositories, all of the issues I was having with swing applications not working with GTK widgets using beryl/compiz are now fixed. Thank you!
