This tutorial will show how to install sun java 6 jre for those having problem installing it on Ubuntu 12.04.
OAB-Java is a project hosted on github.com that create a local ‘apt’ repository for Sun Java 6 and/or Oracle Java 7 packages.
I'm currently using a 64-bit 14.04, but an online class that I'm taking wouldn't correctly load its Java components. After I fixed the same problem on my 64-bit windows by installing 32-bit Java, I decided to try for the same fix on my ubuntu machine.
After following many different install/uninstall guides, I've really trashed my Java installation.
