Why Sun's Java? – Bruno Pereira Dec 18 '11 at 18:13
I need the sun jdk for my work :). – Anna Bell Dec 18 '11 at 19:07
You should normally install from the software repository. However, Suns-Java has recently been discussed and left the repo, so it is now an exception. But for other packages, allways try synaptic/apt-get. – user unknown Dec 18 '11 at 19:46

Those are my notes for installing Oracle JDK6.

Delete the /usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.6 folder. Download the 32-bit version and follow the same steps.
