    They’re working now? I’m still getting no Lucid love.

    Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/sun-java-community-team/sun-java6/ubuntu/dists/lucid/main/binary-i386/Packages.gz 404 Not Found

  4. Arup says:

  5. admin says:

    these packages only for ubuntu 10.10 users

  6. Mike says:

    I emailed the team in regards to providing a Lucid build. I’ll follow up if I hear back.

    @Mike & David Raid & cYbercOsmOnauT

    These are 10.10 packages. Ubuntu 10.04 have had their own packages all the time in the partner repos. You’re looking the wrong place.
    Try this:

  8. Mike says:

    I understand that Lucid already has the sun-java6 packages in the partner repos, but it isn’t the latest version.

    I received a response and was told that that Lucid packages will be pushed to the PPA soon.

  9. David Raid says:

    Thanks Zob, that worked a treat. I was confused because the title of this article referenced 10.04 as well as 10.10.

    Cheers!

    This PPA ready for ubuntu 10.10 and 10.04 users now

    When I used the 3rd code(sudo apt-get install sun-java6) it said:

    Reading package lists… Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information… Done
    E: Unable to locate package sun-java6

    I’m running 10.10

    In Ubuntu Software Center There is:
    OpenJDK Java 6 Runtime
    OpenJDK Java Web Start
    IcedTea Java Plugin

    Are these the same up to date Java 6?
    Been trying to get Pogo.com to work

    @Dustin

    If you’re looking for the JDK:
    $ sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk

    if you’re looking to set up the JRE:
    $ sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre

  13. John says:

    FWIW,

    add-apt-repository is not in the default install that rackspace gives you when you choose 10.10.

    you’ll need to do

    sudo apt-get install python-software-properties

    before the others.

    I am getting above error. I am running Ubuntu10.10

    Thanks

    Did you remember ALL 3 commands?

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sun-java-community-team/sun-java6

    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get install sun-java6

    If you did, what output do you get from the first command?
