Hi, welcome to LQ!

Start up synaptic (or the gnome default package manager)
and search for sun java ... and get it that way.



Cheers,
Tink

java and ubuntu

Hi Tink, Thanx so much for your help so far, but I now have another problem. There are quite a few java programs in my package manger. Do you have any idea which one I should start with?. Thanx in advance.
