Recently I wrote down how to get Java installed on MacOS with the help of Adoptium. Well, it turns out, I also use Linux (Pop!_OS if you were wondering).
To install Java on Linux, go to the Adoptium page and download the tarball according to the version and your architecture. I downloaded the LTS 19 for x64:
tar xfz OpenJDK19U-jdk_x64_linux_hotspot_19.0.2_7.tar.gz sudo mv jdk-19.0.2+7 /opt/
And now make sure that your shell can find it, my shell is Fish, so I added this snippet:
# Java installation through Adoptium set -l java_version "19.0.2+7" if test -d "/opt/jdk-$java_version" set -x JAVA_HOME "/opt/jdk-$java_version" fish_add_path -aP "$JAVA_HOME/bin" end
Now you have Java, quickly go install Clojure :)
