Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If 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 64bit 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 aptget install openjdk6jre` (or openjdk7jre if you want Java 7) from a command line (or use your package manager to search for that package).
