    Re: java install

    The easiest way to install Java on Ubuntu is to install it from the repositories.

    You can install sun-java6-jre and sun-java6-plugin with Add/Remove in the Applications menu or Synaptic.

    Alternately, You can install via the command line with

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin

    Re: java install

    I have tried over and over to install java. Running the above commands do not work for me. I receive this error:

    Package sun-java6-jdk is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    E: Package sun-java6-jdk has no installation candidate

    Any ideas?

    Install your partners repository that is where java resides.
    Remember hence where you come and pass it down.
