    Question Need Help Installing Sun Java into 8.04

    I just installed 8.04 tonight, and now I'm trying to install Sun java. I've used the package manager to get most of the packages, but I am unable to get Firefox to use it. Instead, it is prompting me to use GCJ plugin.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Have you installed the restricted extras package?
    Thinkpad W510, i7-720QM, Nvidia Quadro FX 880m (nouveau), Intel X25-M G2 80GB (OCZ are better), 1080p Wacom Multi-Touch Screen, Intel Centrino Advanced-N + WiMAX 6250, Yubikey OTP

    The easiest is using add remove in applications just open it click all available packages then type Ubuntu in search and Ubuntu restricted will come up click and install. I would also install the gstreamer stuff type gstreamer and then vlc and install. This will cover a huge amount of stuff for easy media etc.
