How about at the java website?:
http://www.java.com/en/download/linux_manual.jsp

Funny that they call it java 2---the files are actually 1.5 + something

I downloaded the Linux self extracting as opposed to the .rpm, Ubuntu doesn't read .rpm's does it?

Ubuntu can use .rpm through alien, OR you could install the official ubuntu packages, such as sun-java6-jre. (This is the 1.6 runtime environment)

You might need to execute the installer, though I still recommend use of the apt repositories.

You're mixing two sections. Just use the first part, the one about " How to install & use .rpm to .deb Converter (Alien)"

Why should anyone attempt to help you when you pay no attention to their suggestions.

# sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre

As I stated earlier, they call it "2" on the site, but it is really 1.5.0.X

And--it is in the Ubuntu repositories (On my Mepis, it was installed by default

Have you looked using Synaptic (in the GUI)

OK-it seems it was in my synaptic package manager. Is J2R another program that runs without you seeing it? Oh, and rickh, why did you think I wasn't paying attention to people's suggestions? I was down and out all yesterday with strep throat.

Based on reading at the java site, I think that jre 1.5.0.X is also called "java 2" If you have jre already, I don't think there is some other program to install....

rickh read you as ignoring other posts---I read as simply that you were struggling to understand. Not to worry....

OK-so my problem is, I installed a program for dial-up through a company called netzero. They have the file for Linspire in a .deb format. See this other thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=532071
In the link to the Ubuntu forum, it said that I need to have J2R installed to be able to see/run it. I have to have this figured out by Saturday...

I repeat: install sun-java5-jre. (This is Sun's official java 2, version 1.5 runtime environment)
