      JavaFX is used to create Internet applications in Java.  It is not a patch, it is more like a 
      different way to program in Java.  For those of you who know what JavaFX is, I know this is
      very much oversimplified but that is not relevant here.

      The error message you are seeing means this:
      1. Uninstall Open JDK7.
      2. Install real official Java Runtime Environment from Oracle.  Sometimes this is called Sun Java or Oracle Java.

      Ignore the part that says "or install JavaFX separately."  That is only for very experienced Linux
      and Java people.

      The best way to do the two steps above are to use your software management tool in your distribution.  In
      order from us to help better, you would need to give us more information about your distro.
