Hi everyone,
I've written a piece of code which uses swing and Java Media Framework. it works fine on Windows. But it's giving errors on linux. I've installed j2sdk1.4.2 and JMF2.1 on linux 9.0. But javac is not able to locate javax.swing and is unable to import the package
Can some one tell me what's wrong?

I'll bet that the version that shows up isn't the version you think you have installed.

You'll need to put the version of Java you want on the PATH, and make sure that the JMF.JAR file is on the CLASSPATH.
