please note, that uDig is shipped and installed with its own JRE. To
verify which JRE is used open the "About uDig" Dialog in the launched
Application (Menu -> Help -> About uDig". In the opened Dialog you
will find a "installation Details" Buttown left below, hit it and
switch afterwards to the "Configuration" tab.

For the uDig installation (1.2.2) you will see something like this:


To test against the installed JRE please go through:

* goto /usr/lib/udig with terminal/shell (cd /usr/lib/udig)
* type "sudo mv jre jreXXX" and type the password afterwards (user)
* start uDig again

and in the same About Dialog mentioned above you will see
java.home=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk   (or something like this, but
not the bundled JRE from /usr/lib/udig)

Start testing the Walkthrough to verify everything is fine:
