    Ubuntu 12.04 Java Failed Install

    Hi I tried to install Java for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and the install failed!
    I am getting loads of random app crashes and spongy slow response of the system
    in general.

    I don't know how to remove what's been done or how to actually
    get Java on the system.

    Everything was good until this. I have copied the terminal
    output for you to look at and maybe offer me a way out of this.

    Reinstalling is not a good option right now, as i have a ton of data.

    Thank you

    Re: Ubuntu 12.04 Java Failed Install

    Thanks guys, worked perfectly for me.

    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;

    Thank you so much for posting the fix!
    This has been bugging me for almost a month now.

    I have put the commands into a small script and a descriptive blog post here:

    Hope this reaches whoever is having the same problem

    I'm very pleased my thread helped the community out, but it was not my fix, i found this
    in some obscure blog.

    Thanks though to whoever i got it from.

    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.
    The Community Java Wiki * The Community ATI Driver Wiki * Find what you need in the Ubuntu Community wikis

    And seeing the terror on the faces of the people, QIII did speak to them, saying "Fear not the Terminal, for it is a road both swift and secure to the Great Mysteries of Linux without passing through the dangers of The Land of Ten Thousand Competing Desktop Environments."
