so, what kind of package have you got, sdk?
then you have untarred it in /usr/local...
Well, then it should be installed doing:
./configure
make
make install (as superuser)

If all you've done is unpack it in /usr/local there'll be depending on whether it's the jre or sdk

j2sdk_whatever_theversion.bin

chmod u+x j2sdk_whatever_theversion.bin

./j2sdk_whatever_theversion.bin

And that'll create the the directory for it and install it in /usr/local as
you guessed it

j2sdk_whatever_theversion (or slightly different name if it's just the runtime environment you got)

Open Office should detect it if you put in
/etc/profile

Code:
JAVA_HOME=path_to_the_java_directory_you just installed

EXPORT JAVA_HOME
logout and back in again

Just do what Looking_Lost said to do:
type chmod u+x j2sdk_whatever_theversion.bin and hit enter
then type ./j2sdk_whatever_theversion.bin and follow the onscreen instructions.
(and then do all the other stuff Looking_Lost said)

And it should all work fine.

If it doesn't, post what you did and any error messages that appear and we'll help with troubleshooting.
