How to install 64 bit JDK on Ubuntu 12.04

  • Posted November 10, 2013

I’m running Ubuntu 12.04 x64 and a Minecraft server on it, the tutorial I followed tells me to download the JDK (Java runtime), for obvious reasons. But when I run “java -d64” it says

“This Java instance does not support a 64-bit JVM. Please install the desired version.”

How do I install the desired version correctly?
