Re: Can't install Sun java 5 JDK in Karmic Koala
As rickh57 said, get it from java.sun.com, I have a backup copy just in case they require subscription for such old stuff. Anyway Java 5 is already the IE6 of browsers, people should really drop it dead, Apple also upgraded long ago to Java 6.
Imho Java EE 5 can and should be used with Java (JRE) 6
Also Java 5 had lots of rendering issues as well as printing issues unresolved (on Ubuntu and Linux in general).
Nautilus - the champion of sluggishness and HDD trashing.
