How to Install Sun’s Java 6 in Ubuntu 9.04


Here is a video I made for my Grandmother to show her how to fix her (Java) Pogo games in Ubuntu 9.04 by installing Sun’s Java & removing a few other programs.

This is how to install Sun’s Java 6 runtime (JRE).

1) Goto Applications-Accessories-Terminal.

2) Copy & paste the code located in these boxes in the Terminal box one at a time:

sudo apt-get autoremove

sudo apt-get remove -y swfdec-gnome swfdec-mozilla gnash mozilla-plugin-gnash icedtea6-plugin openjdk-6-jre openjdk-6-jre-lib

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree

sudo apt-get install –reinstall -y sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin sun-java6-fonts

At some point you may be prompted to agree a license agreement like in the video.

3)Your mouse will not work here. No problem, just press TAB key to select the Ok option and then press Enter.

4)Next you will be shown another prompt, your mouse will not work here ether. No problem, just use your arrow keys to select Yes option and press Enter to start the install process.

5)Finish by putting these final codes in the Terminal box one at a time:

sudo update-alternatives –auto java

sudo update-alternatives –auto xulrunner

pkill firefox

6) Open your web browser & try your Pogo!!! Your games should work now with no problem.
