This brief tutorial will teach you how to install Oracle Java 10 in Arch Linux and its derivatives such as Antergos and Manjaro Linux etc. We can install Oracle Java either from the source or using any AUR helper programs, for example Yay. However, Installing Java using Yay AUR helper is the easiest and simplest way. Let us get started.

First update your Arch Linux system using command:

$ sudo pacman -Syu

Then, install Yay if you haven't installed it yet as described in the following link.

Install Oracle Java 10 in Arch Linux

After installing Yay, search for the available Java versions.

Search available Oracle Java versions using command:

$ yay jdk

The above command will display all available Oracle JDK and JRE versions. Just type the number of your choice. I am going to install the most recent version of Oracle Java, which is Version 10.0.2 as of writing this guide. So, I entered the number : 24.

==> Packages to install (eg: 1 2 3, 1-3 or ^4)
==> 24

During installation, you will be asked to enter the password of the sudo user. Enter the password and wait for few moments to complete the installation.

Next check available Java environments in your system using command:

$ archlinux-java status
Available Java environments:
java-10-jdk
java-8-openjdk (default)

As you see in the above output, I have two Java versions (openjdk and oracle java) and the default environment is java-8-openjdk. To set Oracle jdk as default java, run the following command:

$ sudo archlinux-java set java-10-jdk/jre

If you have set an invalid java environment link, use the following command to fix it.

$ sudo archlinux-java fix

That's it. Now, check the java version using command:

$ java -version

Sample output:

java version "10.0.2" 2018-07-17
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 18.3 (build 10.0.2+13)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 18.3 (build 10.0.2+13, mixed mode)

As you see in the above output, the latest stable version of Oracle Java has been installed.

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a Good day!!

Thanks for this, but why not nr 14 instead of 43?

When I do $ yay jdk and then choose 24 I get “Packages to cleanBuild?” [N]one [A]ll [Ab]ort [I]nstalled [No]tInstalled or (1 2 3, 1-3, ^4)
then a lengthy Oracle agreement I can’t get past. What am I supposed to do there?
