Install Sun Java in Ubuntu 10.04

Ubuntu System:
Ubuntu 10.04 (lucid)

Reason install Sun Java instead using OpenJDK:

Some applications have problems with OpenJDK, ie. Freenet, Wuala, Sparnord, but work fine with Sun JRE. A Google search reveals many applications and issues. So if you want to use one of these applications you would better use Sun Java.


1) Click Applications -> Software Centre -> In the Menubar, choose Edit -> Software Sources. Go to tab Other Software and tick the first entry (" lucid partner"). Close and confirm the "Reload". 

2) In Software Centre, search for "sun java" and install the first package ("Sun Java 6.0 Plugin").
