Description Jack Rueter 2018-07-12 10:36:24 CEST
Using Linux Mint 18.2 sonya


GettingStartedOnLinux.html

UBUNTU lists:
openjdk-7-jdk

as one package. Where is it available?

Google suggests:
openjdk-7-jdk has no installation candidate

You can search for openjdk packages by writing:
apt-cache search openjdk

On my machine (Ubuntu 16.04 LTS) this search shows that these jdk packages are available:
openjdk-7-jdk
openjdk-8-jdk
openjdk-9-jdk

You can install e.g. the 8-jdk package (the one I have installed) by writing:
sudo apt install openjdk-8-jdk
