    How to install Oracle Java 8. (Includes JDK and JRE)

    Firstly, trust me with this, because you can look up how to install this on Google and it will show the same info I am teaching you now.

    Now, on with the tutorial.

    First, open XTerm on Lubuntu & Kubuntu , Terminal Emulator on Xubuntu, and Terminal on Ubuntu (Main flavor), and type in what's below:


    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get oracle-java8-installer

    Then, a text-only UI will appear with a Terms and Conditions window and after that a Yes/No window saying for you to agree to the Oracle Java Binary Agreement or something along those lines. Select Yes and Java 8 will continue with the install. After about 6 minutes (Since that's how long it took me to install this) the install will be finished and you can do whatever you need to with the Java Development Kit and/or Java Runtime Environment (Or JRE for short).

    Aaron out!!!!

    no proxy

    but your cert link comments lead me to realize system time/date was off which was causing problem. my ubuntu server command line foo is weaksauce...too many years playing in windows gui's

    got ntp installed need to get it running with job or something now. trying out a logstash so timestamps are a little crucial

    Oh sorry, I totally missed that /o\
    No, you cannot. let's see if the OP will be back to say their issue is solved or not.

    Sure thing. this is actually listed as a "tutorial" not a problem/incident thread. i posted in here so the answer may be included into the tutorial as known issues which would be valuable for other folks down the road instead of hunting through 3-4 threads to do a simple java install.

    The third command is listed as
    Code:
    sudo apt-get oracle-java8-installer
    I believe that should be
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer
