  2. 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.

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

    Cheers!

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  7. 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?
