That is indeed where Java lives, but there is no file called "javaw"
in that directory. Even more surprising, <find -name "javaw"> doesn't
find anything on the system. (I ran that as root, from /).

What does one do?
It's a typo. Just delete the w. It should be .../jre/bin/java

I must not have been clear. There is noplace where "javaw" is visible
except in the error message. I don't know that it is a typo; "javaw" is a
normal Java executable. I don't know why there is none on my system.

It is not normal on a linux system

The typo is in $HOME/Desktop/Genealogy\ J.desktop

In that file you have a line that says

Exec=/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0.u4-sun-1.6.0.u4/jre/bin/javaw -Xmx512m
-Xms32m -jar run.jar

Well, except that on your system it said java-1.5.0-something. Whatever,
just remove the w and it will work

I forgot to mention that you can also do it by simply right-clicking on
the icon on your desktop and change it right there

Actually, you might just remove the whole full path thing, and just say
"java -Xmx512m -Xms32m -jar run.jar", plain and simple. That saves your
having to edit it every time java gets updated
