Best Answer

Install Sun Java via Synaptic, do a Quick Search Search for sun java and install the jre and jdk. Do not forget to run update-alternatives –config java and update-alternatives –config javac.

If you’re on the 8.10 version, please install Java manually from the Oracle website, because the distributed packages are obsolete.

Download gephi from here https://gephi.org/users/download/

Then After the download completes, unzip and untar the file in a directory. Run it by executing ./bin/gephi script file.

You can run the script file with

chmod +x /bin/gephi.sh

Hope that helps .
