Adding Sun Java to Ubuntu 10.10

 
 

To install Sun's Java 6 JDK on Ubuntu 10.10, obtain root privileges then add the Sun Java6 Community PPA and install:

add-apt-repository ppa:sun-java-community-team/sun-java6
aptitude update
aptitude install sun-java6-jdk sun-java6-demo openjdk-6-doc sun-java6-source sun-java6-plugin ia32-sun-java6-plugin sun-java6-fonts ttf-kochi-gothic ttf-sazanami-gothic ttf-kochi-mincho ttf-sazanami-mincho ttf-arphic-uming libmyodbc odbc-postgresql tdsodbc unixodbc-bin

Press 'Y' and enter, then wait for the packages to install.

When the packages have finished installing, type:

update-java-alternatives -s java-6-sun

and that should do it...
