I just discovered that Oracle's (Sun's) Java6 has vanished from the Canonical's partner repository.
Before Java was taken from all repositories I had purchased Minecraft for play in Ubuntu. After recent re-install I can not find a way to play this game in the only OS installed now on my systems.
Open source Java equivalents will not run this piece of software nor am I able to use Yahoo Games with my friends. Somewhere I should have been given a choice as to what security risks I'm willing to deal with in order continue to use or not use paid commercial software.
Is there any solution besides directly downloading the java from sun and trying to re-install manually? This method coupled with my short Ubuntu term skills is not an option.
