How to install sun-java6-jdk on Ubuntu Meerkat?


I install the sun-java6-jdk package on Ubuntu

sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk

and I get an error.

The sun-java6-jdk package is not available, but is listed in another package's dependency list. This may mean that the package is missing, outdated, or available from sources not mentioned in sources.list
E: No installation candidate found for package sun-java6-jdk

What repositories need to be connected?


You need to add partner repositories.


echo "deb maverick partner" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
echo "deb-src maverick partner" >> /etc/apt/sources.list

apt-get -qq update
apt-get -y -qq install sun-java6-jdk
