Installing Wurm In Ubuntu 12.04 (Linux)

Recommended Posts

Note: This may also work on other flavors of Linux,

The reason Wurm doesn`t work out of the box with most of the newer linux versions is that Wurm needs Oracle Sun java and OSJ pulled the license for auto include in Linux. Linux thus uses OpenJDK and Wurm doesn`t like it.

Copied from http://www.ubuntugee...untu-12-04.html

So 1st we need to remove Openjdk.

Press Ctrl+Alt+T to open a Terminal.

and Type in

sudo apt-get purge openjdk

Then we need to add OSJ to the application repository

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java

Then update the application repository (Takes a small while)

[color=#000000]​[/color][color=#000000]sudo apt-get update[/color]

and then Install OSJ

sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer

To test just go to java in the Dashboard and check that it opens

I just typed in javaws -viewer in the console to test.

Wurm works now. (No reboot needed)

In case some of you don't like using random repositories, here is a nice explanation on how to manually install the file from oracle:


Also some people have reported getting different problem with Java7 and Wurm.

So if you want the older version, sun-java6 can still be installed from the Ubuntu repo.
