As you have openjdk6 installed, do the following:

  1. Download Outlook Messenger from the website.
  2. Go to your download folder, right click on "outlookmessenger7.jar" and select "Extract here".
  3. Go in the new "OM" folder.
  4. Right click on "OutlookMessenger.jar", select Properties.
  5. Go to the "Permissions" tab, check "Allow executing file as program". Close that window.
  6. Right click on "OutlookMessenger.jar", select "Open with OpenJDK Java 6 Runtime".

There you go! (There is no need for installing, and no need for the terminal.)

I think it is better to open a new question for this, as it is not related to the installation any more. Furthermore, consider marking this answer as accepted if it helped you, since it may also help further users. – Agmenor May 18 '12 at 17:19
