You probably have to write something else than lucid in the first line. Write whatever the current Ubuntu codename is.
I found it here: http://www.clickonf5.org/7777/how-in...untu-1004-lts/Code:sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ lucid partner" sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin sudo update-alternatives --config java
Otherwise you could try openjre. It is essentially Java except open. Don't know if it comes with a browser plug in though.
If everything fails you can take a look here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java and install it (sun-java and open) manually if you are up to it.
Does anyone happen to know how can I enable fingerprint authentication on Debian? I have a ThinkPad T61 and I'd like to use the fingerprint scanner.
I know this may sound dumb, but how can I run Chrome on debian?
Whatever I do, Chrome says it cannot run as root, even though I am not logged in as root.
root, even though I logged in as my normal user right after boot.
Is it because I (have to) start "startx" as superuser?
I need to either log in as root or sudo startx, else it won't work.
Yay! Got tha Java to work.
However i did this:
I fell like some sort of pro right nowCode:sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ferramroberto/java sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk sun-java6-plugin
Thank's to everyone who tried to help, i really love to see people that care!

Could someone explain to me how to get ERC & jabber.el working in my emacs? I would really appriciate it.
Hello there, guys!
I need a little bit of help. I'm trying to install Arch Linux on a 2 GB USB flash drive. I've tried numerous tutorials, but they either don't work or it's too complicated for me.
Now, for your interest, I'm pretty much a Linux newbie. I've decided to jump on the Arch Train because from my past experiences, I learn more from more complicated things.
I've tried using Linux Live USB generator, but the problem is that I want my data to be persistent.
I'd also like to use Arch, because I enjoy switching over from console to GUI in a pinch, makes me feel a little more geeky than I am now :D
Now, for a few questions:
Should I dump Arch and use another distro instead?
What other ways do you recommend me to install Arch Linux or another distro on a USB stick?
That's the wonderful thing about Linux, if you have a problem, there's either a solution to it or an alternative to what you're using.
And fucks sake, 'kiddy distros'? Ubuntu's just as capable as any other distro, get over yourself.
(And this is coming from an Arch user, fyi.)
The mouse is rather choppy in movement on Ubuntu 12.04. Using the trackpad on this laptop is a flawless reaction (and possible over-reacts to typing), yet using a wireless USB Logitech M305 mouse is poking along. Well, not really slow, but the movement isn't fluid. Research isn't yielding any results. What is the problem and how do I fix it.
I'm having some trouble getting steam to work under wine. It seems to crash as soon as it finishes logging in, after the "connecting to account" window closes.
I'm using Arch.
Is it worth setting up a 8gb swap partition on a 1tb drive if I have 8gb of physical memory and probably won't go over 8gb used?
don't do 8 GB that's silly. do more like 2
Wait so I will need that much? or was There's no way you could "n"ever need that much. a typo?
I think I might just put in a 8gb swap space since I have 700gb of free hardrive space on my other drives and I am popping in another 1tb drive just for linux.
Even if you have 1TB available, it's still good practice to save space where you can (I've filled up terabytes fast before, just being careless and never deleting shit)
Is there a terminal program that lists the biggest files on your HDD?
