    Angry Canonical Sources Not There?

    Hi. So I am currently running Ubuntu 11.10 on a USB drive with persistent file space (I'll be moving to an external hard drive later this week). I wanted to install Java on here but when I go to enable the software sources for Canonical (http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu lucid), I discovered that alas, they are not there. Basically when you go to software sources and the "Other Software" tab, the default Canonical sources aren't there.

    Is there any way to remedy this?

    P.s. i have attached a picture of what it should have.

    Please and thanks in advance,

    Since sun-java6-jdk has been removed from the default Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot) repositories you need to add a PPA repository (unless you want to install by hand

    Normally Google doesn't sort by trust.

    What I would recommend is installing openJDK (both version 6 and 7 are available AFAIK).
