hi Werner and Johan, I got this reply in terminal java -jar 

""HP-635-Notebook-PC:~$ java -jar Greenfoot-generic-221.jar
Error: Unable to access jarfile Greenfoot-generic-221.jar

re the java version

java -version
""java version "1.7.0_25"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.3.10) (7u25-2.3.10-1ubuntu0.12.04.2)
OpenJDK Client VM (build 23.7-b01, mixed mode, sharing)

re typing in GREENFOOT
A suitable JDK couldn't be located. You may need to edit the
/usr/bin/greenfoot launch script.

what does this mean?
