Go to Applications > Ubuntu Software Center.

If you want the official free open source software Java, type in "openjdk" (without the quotes) in the search box. Install these three packages:

OpenJDK Java 6 Runtime
OpenJDK Java 6 Web Start
Icedtea Java Plugin

If you want the official proprietary Java, go to Edit > Software Sources..., click the Other Software tab, find Canonical Partners, check the box, and click Close. Then, under "Get Software" (in the bar on the left side of the Ubuntu Software Center window) click Canonical Partners. Click on "The Java(TM) Plug-in, Java SE 6" and click Install.

Both the free open source software version of Java and the proprietary version of Java are official, and both work very well. But generally speaking, you should only install one.

After you install Java, you'll have to quit all your web browser windows and go back into your web browser, in order to use websites with Java plugins.

Can you help with this problem?
