# How to install java 3d in ubuntu

I'd recently asked a question for getting started in game development from where I was suggested for the book "Killer Game Programming-Java".

On the page there is a java 3d program which needs to be installed. I'd downloaded and installed java3d file from here and also from the sun/oracle's site. But the program given there is not working.

I would like to know how to install that java3d package in Ubuntu 10.10, and also is there any need to set environmental variable \$PATH or classpath for java, and if so, how to do that?

The downloaded version of java3d is 1.5 and it is a .bin file.

• Is this the right place to ask? Well, I'm sure someone will know. I remember I had some problems installing Java on my Ubuntu machine as well. But then I realized I don't need it. – jcora Dec 4 '11 at 10:21
• @Bane: As the problem arrived from here that's why asked this question here. Might somebody had found this problem also, so he can provide the solution. Well there is another site where all ubunut related questions are asked. – Mohammad Faisal Dec 4 '11 at 10:39
