Hi,

I've just understood the java path, thanks for the clarification. But I
still have a problem installin that in linux.

I've downloaded *"jre-6u31-linux-i586.bin"*  from java webpage, I've
extracted it using *7zip*, next I put the extracted path into *
"installers.properties"* and generate the installer for linux. Then I
switch to linux (Ubuntu 10.04) and when I tried to install it I 've got the
following error:


david at david-laptop:~$ ./Jitsi-1.0-beta1-0.build.by.SVN-linux.bin

SIP Communicator 1.0.draft - starting installation... please wait

./setup.sh: 2: ./jre/bin/java: not found
chmod: can not be accessed «$INSTALL_PATH/jre/bin/java»: No such file or
directory
david at david-laptop:~$

What is the problem now? Have any idea about it?

Thanks a lot!
Kind Regards,
*--*
