In software centre, enable the partner repository and you can install sun java from there

@zachariakassim: This issue is now being discussed in a newer question that you have posted (https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/sun-java6/+question/143038). Therefore, I recommend marking this question (but not that one) as Solved.

Since my internet connection is slow,I went to internet cafe and download all
these files as mr eliah kagan said.

sun-java6-bin_6.22-0ubuntu1~10.10_i386.deb
sun-java6-demo_6.22-0ubuntu1~10.10_i386.deb
sun-java6-fonts_6.22-0ubuntu1~10.10_all.deb
sun-java6-javadb_6.22-0ubuntu1~10.10_all.deb
sun-java6-jdk_6.22-0ubuntu1~10.10_i386.deb
sun-java6-jre_6.22-0ubuntu1~10.10_all.deb
sun-java6-plugin_6.22-0ubuntu1~10.10_i386.deb
sun-java6-source_6.22-0ubuntu1~10.10_all.deb

But when I tried to install it is not installing

it give this error

tar: ./usr/share/doc/sun-java6-plugin: Cannot create symlink to `sun-java6-bin': Operation not permitted
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors
dpkg-deb: subprocess tar returned error exit status 2

again when i tried to extract the file it give this error

I should be able to get a chance to reply, later today.

However, for now, PLEASE repost the message you just posted, in https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/sun-java6/+question/143038. (Reposting messages is generally a bad thing to do, but in this case, posting it *here* was a bad thing to do, as it really belongs *there*.) Your post doesn't make any sense in this old question. Other people will have no idea why you manually downloaded .deb files, given the context of actionparsnip's answer. They will also have no idea what you're doing extracting .tar files, since by looking at this question page, they have no way of knowing that they're the .bin JRE/JDK installer files downloaded from Oracle's website. I understand the context because I'm the one who recommended that you manually download the .deb files, but switching from one question to another with wild abandon is getting confusing even for me.

In https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/sun-java6/+question/143038 I explained why it is helpful to keep all the discussion about one issue in the same Launchpad question, rather than smearing it across multiple questions. If you have not done so already, please read what I wrote there, and take heed of it.

Can you help with this problem?
