Getting SUN Java 6 JRE installed on Ubuntu 10

Getting SUN Java 6 JRE installed on Ubuntu 10

So far, installing SUN Java versions have always been a bit of a “pain” under Linux. Well, as I said, when you need SUN’s Java version that is. Most of the time you need to go to their intuitive (fun intended) download page and think very hard which version to download.

Ubuntu has made this step a bit easier. Actually, all there is to it, is the following:

1. Add the required partner repository

Under Ubuntu 10 you have to edit the file “/etc/apt/sources.list” and uncomment the partner entires (See screen shot below).

2. Update your repository

This is a simple one. Issue the command “apt-get update” and off you go.

3. Install Java

Now all there is for you to do is to install Java with “apt-get install sun-java6-jre”.

Now, anyone please tell me that Linux is hard to handle 🙂
