Hey everyone,

For the last hour, I've been trying to install Sun's Java 6. I've looked up everything on it, but can't find a solution that works. I've tried sudo apt-get install java everything that I could find, but nothing worked.

As of now, I've done

sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ lucid partner"

and uninstalled the OpenJDK and all affiliated java with that.

So, who knows how to do this?

Thanks in advance everyone.

Thank you; it appears to be working. If only google would display that page >,<

Worked like a charm; now even chrome can run java applets. Thanks a lot :D

Hey everyone,
I tried the solution listed on the website and it worked just fine, but I wanted to install JDK 5 instead of 6. I need the code I'm writing to be JDK 5 compliant, and I tried changing the 6's to 5's in the commands on the website, but it didn't work. Any ideas on how I could get JDK 5 installed?
