    Re: Ubuntu 12.04 Java Failed Install

    Canonical didn't decide not to include Oracle Java. Oracle decided to remove all licensing for Oracle Java to be maintained in anyone's repos.

    Re: Ubuntu 12.04 Java Failed Install

    I have one program which will definitely not run with the open java included in ubuntu otherwise, but other things seem to work fine.

    Are there any special reasons why to install the oracle java instead the open java?

    Re: Ubuntu 12.04 Java Failed Install

    I used this fix in the past, and it seemed to work perfectly. But today, the error randomly started occurring again. When I attempted to use the same fix, it came up with a new error:

    Errors were encountered while processing:
    myspell-st
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
    If anyone can help with that, I'd be very grateful

    Try this bsprakash, if you're unsure, one command at a time.

    Code:
    sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/info/oracle-java7-installer*
    sudo apt-get purge oracle-java7-installer*
    sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*java*
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer
    Or all in one :

    Code:
    sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/info/oracle-java7-installer*; sudo apt-get purge oracle-java7-installer*; sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*java*; sudo apt-get update; sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java; sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer;

    Oh, man, thank you so much. Spent hours looking at other forums and trying different ideas to install Java. This worked! Thanks.
