    There is a community doc with that info, which includes the browser plug-in installation.

    Yes, enter the following in a terminal:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get -y install sun-java6-bin sun-java6-fonts sun-java6-jdk sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin
    This works for 32 and 64 bit.

    Remember for Lucid and later you need to enable the "Partner" repository. Java stuff was moved to this repository.

    Windows XP - Excellent computer virus detector.
    Windows Vista - Most bloat for the money.

    The restricted extras package installs the openJDK plugin. Yes, that one works, but the SUN/Oracle one is better.
