Bug Description

Binary package hint: fetchexc

fetchexc reports "No suitable java program found" when run. However I have openjdk-6 installed.

Fix was simple:

+ /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/jre/bin/java \
     /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-sun/bin/java; do
     if [ -x $java ]; then
         exec $java -jar /usr/share/java/fetchexc.jar "$@"

However I wonder if it should just point at /usr/bin/java and let /etc/alternatives take care of it?

System details:
Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS x86_64
fetchexc 2.0-2

Problem still exists in 10.10. The upgrade installed package fetchexc 2.0-3 and I had to re-edit /usr/bin/fetchexc

This time I just added /usr/bin/java to list of paths checked, and that's fine too.

Still returns "No suitable java program found" when run on 12.04. Editing /usr/bin/fetchetc to add /usr/bin/java works around the problem for me as well.

Changed in fetchexc (Ubuntu):
