    Exclamation type conversion error

    Hi I am getting a Type mismatch: cannot convert from java.lang.String to int error. How do I convert between those types?

    package Spiller;
    import java.util.Scanner;
    public class Spiller {
      private String navn;
      private String adresse;
      private int postNummer;
      private String poststed; 
      public Spiller(String initNavn, String initAdresse, int initPostnummer, String initPoststed) {
       navn = initNavn;
       adresse = initAdresse;
       postNummer = initPostnummer;
       poststed = initPoststed;
      public void hentNavn() {
        Scanner myScanner = new Scanner (System.in);
        String input1;
        System.out.println("Hva heter du?");
        input1 = myScanner.nextLine();
        navn = input1;
     public void hentAdresse() {
        Scanner myScanner = new Scanner (System.in);
        String input2;
        System.out.println("Oppgi adresse: ");
        input2 = myScanner.nextLine();
        adresse = input2;
     public void hentPostnummer() {
    Scanner myScanner = new Scanner (System.in);
        String input3;
        System.out.println("Oppgi postnummer: ");
        input3 = myScanner.nextLine();
        postNummer = input3;
      public void hentPoststed() {
       Scanner myScanner = new Scanner (System.in);
        String input4;
        System.out.println("Oppgi poststed: ");
        input4 = myScanner.nextLine();
        poststed = input4;
