I have recently installed NOMAD "nord modular editor" and am getting the following output. Using the command which was provided by the author of the software.

java -jar nomad.jar

From trawling around google I found a thread at Ubuntu Forums that said it had something to do with my default java version and the XML parser that is supposed to be part of that package. I have installed jre 1.5.0_09 from the java website and when I go to their test page it says I am using that version. However if I run the command:

alternatives --config java

It returns:

There is 1 program that provides 'java'.

Selection Command
*+ 1 /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.4.2-gcj/bin/java :eek:

Where is version 1.5.0_09 and how do I set it as the default Java package so I can use this editor?

JRE is actually installed in /usr/java/jre1.5.0_09 and isnt listed as an alternative so I may need to be able to link to the alternatives.

Im also using seq24 to run the rest of my MIDI stuff and it has been working very well since I figured the program change and bank change values are -1 the actual value. Getting this working is one of very few issues I have left with Linux for Audio and when Ive done so goodbye Windows forever. Yeah theres also the issue of getting a Waldorf Pulse editor happening in Linux and it would be ultimate if Ableton wrote a Linux port of Live (fat chance) but getting the necessary libraries for it to run in WINE would be a satisfactory comprimise.

Anyway first things first can anyone help me get the Nomad Nord Editor going first?

OK I know what I have to do to fix the java issue just knowing how to do it is the problem. I have to set a path for the java in /usr/java so its path is recognised when I use the alternatives --config java command.

Can anyone tell me how to set up this path?
