Re: [g-a-devel] success with gnopernicus 0.8.4 Gnome 2.6 in Debian


As Peter said, it's very hard to imagine a situation in which Sun's Java impacts Gnome Accessibility in general. The Java VM is only used by OpenOffice. I don't think Mozilla even automatically uses a new Java VM when you install it - though I may be wrong about that. In any case, Mozilla accessibility doesn't use or even touch the Java stuff.

The java binaries/libraries are normally placed in /usr/java, so you can remove them physically by removing the directory. There is a small possibility that this could require some reconfiguration to Mozilla, if Mozilla was smart enough to detect and use the new Java, but I don't have details about that.

Because of Sun's license, there isn't a Debian package.  You run the

uninstall if it breaks things.
For the record, apt-get remove packagename will remove packagename in

Hi, I don't know how Debian handles packages, but in Fedora removing Java is
as simple as doing rpm -E j2sdk and java is gone.

Hi Kenny,

Hi.  Since both boxes are running Debian unstable, the versions
of Gnome libs and programs are the same.
The only difference is the Java support.  From the messages over the
last 1.5 years on this list, I've always thought Java was a requirement
for Mozilla as well.

I rather doubt it is the Java.  Try adding Sun's J2SE 1.4.2 or 1.5, and


if you start loosing stability...

If I do this and start having problems, how do I return to a stable
system?  If I remember correctly, there isn't an uninstall command for
Sun's Java.  Now that I finally have a stable Gnome, I don't want to
break it if I can't return to it easily.
