I've started using Ubuntu recently and I'm still getting used to the new shortcuts and others.

Since the installation was also done by me, I encountered few issues.

Following are the few things which one could encounter and I've included the links to save time.

How to install JDK on Ubuntu…

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java

wget http://download.oracle.com/otn-pub/java/jdk/6u34-b04/jdk-6u34-linux-i586.bin
$ chmod u+x jdk-6u34-linux-i586.bin
$ ./jdk-6u34-linux-i586.bin
$ sudo mkdir -p /usr/lib/jvm
$ sudo mv jdk1.6.0_34 /usr/lib/jvm/
$ sudo update-alternatives –install “/usr/bin/java” “java” “/usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.6.0_34/bin/java” 1
