I downloaded icedtea-2.3.4 tar ball and extracted it on my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS desktop system.

While running install-sh (permission allowed to be executable) and clicking on Run in terminal gives nothing but just a frame of terminal window for fraction of second.

I am unable to install latest icedtea-2.3.4 , which I compulsorily require because one of banking site needs it.

How to install icedtea-2.3.4?

Change to that directory after extracting the tar then do as

sudo make install

execute those commands one by one.
