How do I install Oracle JDK 6?

The issue has been posted in various sites, but didn't get any of them working for me. Who can help me?

I followed the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java for Java 6.

Ubuntu version 12.10

  1. Downloaded jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin
  2. chmod u+x jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin
  3. ./jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin ./jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin: 1: ./jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin: cannot open html: No such file ./jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin: 2: ./jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin: cannot open head: No such file ./jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin: 3: ./jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin: cannot open title: No such file ./jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin: 3: ./jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin: Request: not found ./jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin: 4: ./jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin: cannot open META: No such file ./jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin: 5: ./jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin: cannot open link: No such file ./jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin: 6: ./jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin: cannot open link: No such file : not foundlinux-x64.bin: 7: ./jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin: ./jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin: 8: ./jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin: cannot open body: No such file ./jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin: 9: ./jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin: cannot open div: No such file ./jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin: 10: ./jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin: cannot open table: No such file ./jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin: 11: ./jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin: cannot open tr: No such file ./jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin: 12: ./jdk-6u37-linux-x64.bin: Syntax error: redirection unexpected

What else should I do to get this working? I'm pretty new to linux world. My project requires JDK 6x rather than the latest 7.


There's an easier way to to do it. Just add the webupd8 ppa and run oracle-java6-installer.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java6-installer

The complete instructions are here: http://www.webupd8.org/2012/11/oracle-sun-java-6-installer-available.html

If you want to install openjdk instead of oracle/sun, run

sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jdk
