I am really a greenhorn, when it comes to computers. I have a HP 32 bit tp. It has webOS 3.05, if that matters. I am trying to install java. I don't know what version to install. I tried to install novacom, also. I tried preware, but I think you have to have java installed, right? Everything I try to download, it gives me the error, cannot open mime files. HELP Please.

Thank You,

Why are you trying to install Java on the TouchPad itself? I don't think the versions of Java that came with previous versions of webOS were supported as browser plugins.

If you want to install Preware, do it on a computer, unless you have wTerm or another shell app on your TouchPad that you can use to download the install script.

For TP to connect to your PC you need novacom and the latest Java installed on the PC side.

Verify Java Version

Downloads - universal-novacom-installer - Universal Novacom Installer - Google Project Hosting

Then get WOSQI on your PC and use that to install Preware onto the TP: http://forums.webosnation.com/canuck...-v4-4-0-a.html

is this just for a webpage to function or something, ubuntu is always a choice for this if your browser doesnt work as needed, firefox or chromium on ubuntuchroot should do the trick.
