View Full Version : [ubuntu] Java Problem

September 23rd, 2009, 11:26 AM
I simply cant install Java runtime environment on Ubuntu. I followed EXACTLY the same instructions given here: http://www.java.com/en/download/help/5000010500.xml#selfextracting

However I'm still facing the typical Java problems, like inability to upload photos on facebook etc.

Plz help me out.

You can install java from synaptic typing in search box sun-java6-jre or you can install ubuntu-restricteed-extras witch give you more then Java.Go to the add/remove>all available apps>other>ubuntu-restricted-extras.

Note that if you install Java manually, as opposed to using Synaptic, you will have to manually configure the Java plug in, as described in these instructions (http://www.java.com/en/download/help/5000010500.xml#enable)
