Sure, install java and they will work. Java is the same on all platforms.

Please first enable the partner repository:

Open System → Administration → Software sources → [ Other software ]
enable "http://archive.canonical.com/lucid partner"
Close and confirm the repository reload.

Here some repositories details: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/Ubuntu

Then open a Terminal from the menu Applications → Accessories → Terminal and type:

sudo aptitude update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo aptitude install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-bin

give your user password when requested, you don't see nothing when you type it, then press enter.

New to Ubuntu: read the Ubuntu Manual, it's very informative: http://ubuntu-manual.org/
