Ok. I have installed jre DSL package. But when I try to install jEdit (IMO the best editor out there) this happens:
|bash-2.05b# dpkg -i /tmp/jedit_4.3pre6_all.deb |
(Reading database ...
dpkg: serious warning: files list file for package `jedit' missing, assuming package has no files currently installed.
11323 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to replace jedit 4:04.03.06.00 (using /tmp/jedit_4.3pre6_all.deb) ...
Unpacking replacement jedit ...
dpkg: error processing /tmp/jedit_4.3pre6_all.deb (--install):
unable to create `./usr/share/applications/jedit.desktop': No such file or directory
dpkg (subprocess): unable to execute new post-removal script: No such file or directory
dpkg: error while cleaning up:
subprocess post-removal script returned error exit status 2
Errors were encountered while processing:
dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)
Any ideas what to do?
(I did that as root.)

I've downloaded the jEdit Java Installer (jar file) and it works great.
|Code Sample |
|java -jar jedit4.3pre7install.jar|
Ofcourse you have to install and configure Java, prior to doing this.

Just in case you want to use the .deb still...
That probably was due to a corrupt download
