Did you use "apt-get" to install java?  Eg,

	sudo apt-get install java-1.7.0-openjdk

If not, there may be a missing dependency.

I'm no expert on "apt-get" or Ubuntu.  I use Fedora, which uses the
"yum" command instead.

However, josm works just fine on my system, with java-1.7.0-openjdk

	[john at localhost ~]$ java -version
	java version "1.7.0_25"
	OpenJDK Runtime Environment (fedora-
	OpenJDK Server VM (build 23.7-b01, mixed mode)
