I am trying to install Java on Ubuntu. How to install it?


Hi everyone, I am a new Ubuntu user. I had no experience on installation application but I need Java to get my things done. I do not know how to install Java on the Ubuntu 6.06 LTS. The command were simply complicated and is there a formula to get it done.
PS: In the future, I may need to install other application and it might be the best with graphical installation. (Even Text installation is needed, please tell me a shortcut where that is the place to change it accordingly etc.)

Ubuntu is a derivative of Debian, and as such uses the Debian package management tools. Apt-get has many options to install, remove, update, etc.

You should familiarize yourself with the Ubuntu documentation, which is probably installed on your system, or find it here: https://help.ubuntu.com/

Hi

Start Synaptic and enable the multiverse/universe repository (Google if you don't know how, many howtos already written). Then search for "jre", select appropriate entry and click "Apply". Simple ...

Using apt-get is easy.
Code:
sudo apt-get install sun-java5-jre sun-java5-fonts sun-java5-plugin
or if you have backports enabled:
Code:
sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-fonts sun-java6-plugin
