Just do apt-get install sun-java5-jre
If you want the plugin for firefox do apt-get install sun-java5-plugin

Make sure your sourcelist contains the repo's


deb etch-backports main contrib
deb ../project/experimental main contrib non-free

Why does he need backports or experimental?? It's in non-free.


  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 1.5.0-14-1etch1

Why would you install 1.5? 1.6 has many performance improvements, not to mention the 64 bit plug-in.

Debian Etch

Edit: ok, sun-java6-jre is available for Etch if you enable etch-backports.

You may also want to configure/verify your default java for Linux as well.. your call.

update-alternatives --config java
