need to install latest java and Flash player

Asked by Nikos veis on 2012-03-20

I use the latest version of ubuntu and I needto install the latest versions of java and Flash player.
A command such as "sudo aptitude install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin" that I found on line, does not seem to work.
Also I find difficulties with this link: http://java.com/inc/BrowserRedirect1.jsp?locale=en. It asks me to choose an application before going, that I do not find.
I have not tried about Flash yet.
What should I do?
thank's
Nikos

As far as java goes download this:
http://javadl.sun.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=59621

For flash use firefox and install the addon called
Flash-aid 2.2.3

Can you give the output of:

uname -a; lsb_release-a; dpkg -l | egrep 'flash|gnash|swf|spark'

and I can advise without any 'flashaid' nonsense.

I am quite new to ubuntu. Do you mean I put

uname -a; lsb_release-a; dpkg -l | egrep 'flash|gnash|swf|spark'

on a terminal?

thank's for feedback

You are welcome Nikos,

The directions that you received from the other users are also VERY relevant if you would like to have more in-depth knowledge of the Linux system and how it works.

The command "lsb_release -a" returns information about your system that is helpful in determining the correct answers to be given.
In the future, no matter what system you try, please include this information with your question.

I assume that you are a new user and hope that the information you receive here helps you in your journey into this world of Linux.

Welcome.
