ALEKS is a pain but you need it if you are to pass that math class eh? Well here's a tutorial on how to get ALEKS up and running on Ubuntu.
First off open software sources and enter this:
Then enter this command in a terminal to update:
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ lucid partner
After the update enter this command. You will be asked to accept the terms and conditions Java demands:
sudo apt-get update
[CODE]sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin sun-java6-fonts[/CODE
After all that follow this link to the ALEKS website to download the latest plugin. After the download is complete put it in your home folder.
This is the last step. Just enter this last command into a terminal and your hard work will pay off next time you open up Firefox and login to ALEKS.
sudo cp aleksPack10.jar /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-18.104.22.168/jre/lib/ext/
