Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

When I install this:

sudo apt-get install -y sun-java6-bin sun-java6-jdk sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin

I am still forced to select OK and YES during the install.

The -y switch doesn't work for this.

Is there a way to do this automatically?

  • Create a file containing this line (columns separated by a tab):

    sun-java6-bin   shared/accepted-sun-dlj-v1-1    boolean     true
    
  • Import this into debconf with sudo debconf-set-selections < file.

  • Install the packages
