If you want the Oracle version of Java, go to http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html and download the JRE (Java Runtime Environment) for Linux there (use the x64 package if you've got the 64-bit version of Ubuntu). There's also a thing called OpenJDK (an open source clone of the JRE), but I'm not sure how it compares to the Orcale version. You can install that one by running `sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jre` (or openjdk-7-jre if you want Java 7) from a command line (or use your package manager to search for that package).
i couldn't get da, wats the easiest way?
Do you want the Java Development Kit or the player?
Because I installed my Java using the Terminal.
I jus need regular java so i can go on websites tht require java and i need it for a skool thing
Oh, you mean the plugin.
idk but sure
Can you see the Terminal icon?
OK, just go the the dash and search "Terminal".
wats the dash?
Terminal icon looks like: http://icons.iconarchive.com/icons/artua/mac/512/Terminal-icon.png
It's the icon on the top of the left bar.
@Opcode I think he hasn't put it in the left dock... so he'd have to click on the icon with the Ubuntu logo.

First step, get rid of linux. Second step, Install Java...Profit...???
how do i get riid of linux?
... Linux is free ^_^. Windows is free but...
I'm also sad I read this entire thread :(. Idk why that dude was linking to Open JDK, and especially pulled out 1.6...? Idk why they have it there still(I saw it also) when the Open JDK has the 8 beta :).
I think you need a Mac or Windows right now, @dmezzullo. How did you even install Ubuntu? It's a long thing.
Mezz doesn't want a JDK :-)
I kno :p.
i didn't install it, someone else did, this is my g mas old lap top the guy cleaned it up and put ubuntu on it and idk how to work half the stuff, i like the regular stuff... I jus really need to install Java
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/java-se-jre-7-download-432155.html Idk why you cannot download the linux versions here???
He doesn't know how to run it from the Terminal :O
Because .TAR.GZ doesn't work on Ubuntu! They have to install packages.
weak, down with ubuntu!
In the terminal tar xvf "yourtarfile".tar.gz with the corrected file name if you're having trouble with the TAR file.
