    how to install sun java 6 on lucid lynx

    In the newly released Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, the sun-java6-jre packages have been removed from the Multiverse section of the Ubuntu archive. So you cannot install it using the command sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre directly!!!

    To install sun-java6-jre on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, type the commands below in Terminal:

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ lucid partner"
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre
    this can i be used for the JDK java packages just replace the jre with JDK

    Maybe it is no longer open source because Oracle has purchased it.

    Thanks for the install instructions.

    Re: how to install sun java 6 on lucid lynx

    I'm doing unattended installs using a combination of preseeding and kickstart and would like to know if any one has any idea how to automate the license agreement that you have to manually accept when installing the sun jdk.

    Cheers

    Sun Java and Adobe Flash are in partner repo, need to enable it in synaptic or kpackagemanager.

    i use JDownloader which requires jre.Although it should work with openJDK,but i have previously used sun java and was searching the same in Lucid..

    Update to latest Sun Java via dedicated Java PPA.

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ferramroberto/java && sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get upgrade
