Hello Manish, many thanks, this certainly installed the jdk6 but I still
can't find j2se 1.6 or higher. This seems required to run some examples

Sometimes it helps to set the JAVA_HOME environment variable in your operating
system - using the Control Panel in Windows or a .profile / .bashrc (or
whatever for your shell) in Linux, etc.

For example, if your Linux JDK 6 were rooting in the /usr/java/jdk6/ directory
(wherein resides bin/), you would

   export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/jdk6

(or the equivalent for your shell).

Many if not most Java systems check for this envar. Other systems, like
Eclipse and Netbeans, have their own configuration files that specify which
JVM to use. (Those files are set by the respective installers from the envar.)

Installing the plugin for your browser was the job of the JRE part of the
installation. If it didn't work, or you skipped that part, google around to
find instructions on installing the JRE plugin for your browser flavor.
