If you have a newer computer with a 64 bit version of Windows and a high DPI display, you will want to use one of the OpenJDK 11 installers. Like other Java based applications, LXFree for Java may appear small when used with a high resolution display. Java 9 and later has interface scaling that is compatible with high DPI screens.

The standard installer includes a copy of Open JDK and requires no other installation. (If you have another version of Java installed elsewhere, it shouldn't be a problem.)

If you'd like to obtain or build a separate version of Open JDK, you can download just the LXFree for Java application. The instructions tell you where to put the copy of Open JDK so that the LXFree for Java launcher can find it. This location has changed over time. So, if you install an update, be sure to re-read the instructions for locating the copy of Open JDK so that the LXFree for Java launcher can find it.

Important: If you are updating a version of LXFree for Java older than v1.2.0, you must use the control panel to uninstall LXFree for Java before you attempt to install an update. If you have trouble with installing an update, remove the older version with the Programs and Features control panel and then install the newer version.


LXFree for Java is distributed inside a Debian install package (.deb) and includes a desktop launcher.

To install, open a terminal window and change to the directory containing the lxfreeforjava.deb file:

~$ cd Downloads

Then type:

~$ sudo dpkg -i lxfreeforjava.deb
