You must have Java 1.5 or newer installed. Most current Linux
distributions offer both Java 1.5 and 1.6 from their repositories. For
instance, in Ubuntu 7.10, if you have enabled the non-free repository,
you can install Java by typing the command

sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre

and entering your password, or by installing the package sun-java6-jre
in Synaptic.

OK! Thank you very much. I will file a bug right now.
