Installing JAVA under terminal?
I am trying to install the Sun Microsystems Java Runtime on my Ubuntu Server 10.10, but it is telling me that it is not available. I have researched online and it tells me that it is a part of the multiverse repository. I have not had very much success in activating this either. Any help would be appreciated. Btw, I am a noob :P
Re: Installing JAVA under terminal?
You need to enable partner repositories.
Go to /etc/apt/sources.list and uncomment the parter lines
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu maverick partner
deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu maverick partner
apt-cache search java | grep sun
and choose the packages you want.
