Comments: Manual installation of Oracle Java JDK on Ubuntu

1 comment

In the evening I installed the Oracle Java JDK on Ubuntu Lucid Lynx. Since Oracle Java is no longer available via the default repositories I decided to manually install Java instead of adding a repository and possibly installing an older version. Since I need Java to run programs like Apache Ant, Apache FOP, and Saxon for my work as a freelance Perl programmer I prefer to use the Oracle Java over OpenJDK even though the latter might be a solid alternative for my purposes.

Read the rest of Manual installation of Oracle Java JDK on Ubuntu.


Thank you John.

My situation exactly, and solved by these concise instructions.
