Ubuntu Linux: Install Latest Oracle Java 7

Posted on in Categories , last updated May 16, 2013

I am a network admin who recently made the switch from MS-Windows to Ubuntu Linux. I need to use Java and Firefox web browser plugin to run java applet. I am unable to access many devices such as Firewall appliance, LBS/VPX, and network equipments due to Ubuntu’s incompatible openjdk and icedtea plugin. I also searched software center but unable to find Oracle Java 7. How do I install Oracle Java 7 and get rid of this incompatibility problems on Ubuntu Linux amd64 v12.04 LTS or v13.04+?

I upgraded my system to RHEL/CentOS v6.4 and I am getting the following error for 3rd party packages such as Shorewall and fail2ban:
