Re: [pcgen] Re: Help needed setting up PCgen on a linux machine
- Sun Java is in the repositories, yes. However if you install the ubuntu restricted extras package it installs open java instead of Sun's. Instead of installing that package I have had to go through and pick all the various drivers and software that would be in the package and install them separately. I doubt it would actually be a problem as long as Sun's verison gets installed first.

Actually, sun's java was in synaptic, so it was a piece of cake. I
didn't pay attention if came from multiverse or medibuntu, but I don't
use any of the really exotic repositories. The packages are sun-java6-*
James, thanks for pointing out the need for Sun's java instead. As
much as I like GPL'd code, sometimes you got to stick with what works.

Since you've installed Sun's Java, you can remove open-java. The
