sudo add-apt-repository ppa:eugenesan/java sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer
By now, you have probably gotten an error and the terminal has stated that Java was not installed. No problem.
Download Java directly from Oracle: http://www.oracle.co...ad-1501626.html
Now, move what you just downloaded to /var/cache/oracle-java7-installer/
sudo gedit /var/lib/dpkg/info/oracle-java7-installer.postinst
Now scroll down and find the following:
echo "Downloading..." rm -f $FILENAME WGETRC=wgetrc wget $PARTNER_URL || fp_exit_with_error "download failed" rm -f wgetrc echo "Download done."
Now put a # next to each line between "Downloading..." and "Downloading done."
echo "Downloading..." #rm -f $FILENAME #WGETRC=wgetrc wget $PARTNER_URL #|| fp_exit_with_error "download failed" #rm -f wgetrc echo "Download done."
Save, and go back to your terminal.
sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer
Java should now install properly.
