How can be that? :-?

I just have tested in wheezy and marking openjdk-*-jdk (either 6 or 7) to
be installed only wants to fetch a bunch of additional packages but does
not want to make further changes.

Yes, please, put here the output you get from "apt-get" or "aptitude"
when you are going to install the said package and also your "/etc/apt/
sources.list".

I have long ago switched fron Sun java to OpenJdk, and had no such
trouble. I do recall some dependency hell issues with some other
packages, but turning off "Consider recommended packages as
dependencies" in Synaptic fixed most of those.


I reckon the problem could be OpenOffice anyway; some dependency of some
bit of it may require both java and a particular version of GNOME.


Some Gnome packages are not strictly necessary, as they are meta
packages. Removing some of those will not grossly affect Gnome.

OpenOffice is usually not in a modern disto like Wheezy. Instead it uses
LibreOffice. I have LibreOffice and openjdk working fine in Wheezy with
or without Gnome (I normally use KDE but installed Gnome to try it out
and to use when KDE gives me problems in Wheezy).


If openjdk is replacing a different jdk, it could be that the
removal/reinstallation is really updating the jdk setup and links.

In answer to all who kindly considered the matter.

I was to quick in posting. Having upgraded from squeeze to wheezy i386 I ha such
troubles. Then , wanting emacs gchempaint, and pieces of kde (okular k3b), gnome
2 was updated to gnome3, which I did not know.

I could install libreoffice, true firefox (avoiding iceweasel which does not
support google fully and, more importantly, some of my connections to servers)
and openjdk-6-jdk (now without any deletion).

However, although firefox is set to java, java does not work in running common
molecular applications (movies). Is any independent test of such installation of
java available? Which outputs should I show in order to get help?

Thanks

Ah, that makes more sense to me :-)

Go here and check for the output:

http://www.java.com/es/download/installed.jsp

Also, from Firefox's address bar go to "about:plugins" and look for the
Java path. Should you experience any problem with the open Java, you can
try with Oracle's JRE instead.
