I heard about a program which allows you to make music on Linux computers called Linux Multimedia Studio. I typed sudo apt-get install lmms into the terminal but it responded:

E: The package sun-java6-jre needs to be reinstalled

but I can't find an archive for it.

How can I reinstall this program?

Type sudo apt-get install -f – Tachyons May 4 '12 at 8:16

The dependency problem you have is not related to LMMS as it is written in C++, not in Java (and the lmms package doesn't need java as dependency).
