Ubuntu: “No such file or directory” when invoking java


I'm trying to re-install Oracle JDK 7 32 bit to 64 bit Ubuntu (previously 64 bit JDK was installed). JDK is currently present at /usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.7.0. I invoke

sudo update-alternatives --remove "java" "/usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.7.0/bin/java"  sudo update-alternatives --install "/usr/bin/java" "java" "/usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.7.0/bin/java" 1  

And then:

/usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.7.0/bin$ java  bash: /usr/bin/java: No such file or directory  

Why java can't be invoked?


This message is shown because some 32 bit libraries are absent in Ubuntu 64 bit. Run:

apt-get install libc6-i386  

See Java is installed, in listing, but execution produces “./java: No such file or directory” for more details


what u are doing is trying to execute binary file without telling its path,
for executing java binary try "./java" in bin folder else include its whole path and for installation you may try this :- http://www.devsniper.com/ubuntu-12-04-install-sun-jdk-6-7/


I was helping a friend with their RiotBoard running Linaro-Ubuntu to set it up as a minecraft server. We got the same error. The problem I found was that Java was referencing /lib/ld-linux-armhf.so.3 which does not exist on the system. When you look at /lib the only load file is /lib/ld-linux.so.3 so I just soft link them and it works. Below is how I worked it out and what I did to fix it.

root@linaro-ubuntu-desktop:/opt/java/jdk1.8.0_06/bin# java  -su: /usr/bin/java: No such file or directory    root@linaro-ubuntu-desktop:/opt/java/jdk1.8.0_06/bin# strings java    /lib/ld-linux-armhf.so.3  qwwBI  libpthread.so.0  _Jv_RegisterClasses  libjli.so  _ITM_deregisterTMCloneTable  JLI_Launch  __gmon_start__  _ITM_registerTMCloneTable  libdl.so.2  libc.so.6  abort  __libc_start_main  lib.so  $ORIGIN/../lib/arm/jli:$ORIGIN/../lib/arm  SUNWprivate_1.1  GLIBC_2.4  1.8.0_06-b23  java    root@linaro-ubuntu-desktop:/opt/java/jdk1.8.0_06/bin# ls /lib/ld*    /lib/ld-linux.so.3    root@linaro-ubuntu-desktop:/opt/java/jdk1.8.0_06/bin# ln -s /lib/ld-linux.so.3 /lib/ld-linux-armhf.so.3    root@linaro-ubuntu-desktop:/opt/java/jdk1.8.0_06/bin# ls /lib/ld*    /lib/ld-linux-armhf.so.3  /lib/ld-linux.so.3      root@linaro-ubuntu-desktop:/opt/java/jdk1.8.0_06/bin# java -version    java version "1.8.0_06"    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_06-b23)  Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 25.6-b23, mixed mode)  root@linaro-ubuntu-desktop:/opt/java/jdk1.8.0_06/bin#
