How to Install Sun Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat 8


This quick tutorial will guide you in installing Sun Java (JRE) plugin in Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat. Because Sun Java Runtime is not yet in Maverick’s repository, you must temporarily use Lucid repository to install Java Runtime. After installing Java, you must then remove the temporary repository you added.

 Update: Sun Java Runtime is now available in Maverick’s Repository. Read this to install Java properly in Maverick.

Getting started:

 

To get started, go to Applications –> Ubuntu Software Center.

 

skype_mav_up_java

 

Then click Edit –> Software Sources..

 

skype_mav_up_java_1

 

Next, select ‘Other Software’ tab, then  ‘Add’

 

maverick_java

 

Because Java Runtime is not yet in Maverick, we’ll install Lucid repository temporarily to install Java. Copy and paste the Lucid repository below and click ‘Add Source’

deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu lucid partner

maverick_java_1

 

Notice the new Lucid partner repositories added below.

 

maverick_java_2

 

Back in Software Center, type sun-java6-jre in the search box, then select and install Sun Java:

After installing, go back and remove repositories you added previously.
