    Cool Having trouble installing JRE 6u31

    Hi everyone,

    I am looking to install the latest JRE on my Ubuntu 11.04 box (32bit, using Xfce). I somehow managed to install a PPA repository which installed Java, however version 6u26 (I think), as this is my output for "java -version":

    Code:
    root@vuxee:~# java -version
    java version "1.6.0_26"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_26-b03)
    Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.1-b02, mixed mode)
    I have been looking around for a while now in an attempt to try and upgrade it to update 31, however I'm not in luck. Would anybody here know how to get rid of this outdated version and know how to install 6u31?

    Thanks!

    Hello, Vuxee.

    Use Synaptic package manager to uninstall Java 1.6.0_26. Next comment out the PPA in your source.list.

    Then visit this site and proceed as explained here step by step: Oracle (Sun) Java JRE for Ubuntu, Linux Mint and Debian

    Good luck,
