Oracle Java on Debian

Sometimes it is needed to have installed the Oracle Java version, also with browser integration (firefox, chrome, etc). For example when dealing with Hacienda (the spanish taxes office).

This is the way I use to install it on a Debian Linux. It should work also with Ubuntu and Debian based systems with APT.

All the steps should be executed as superuser or though the command 'sudo'.

 Add the repositories and update:

echo "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/webupd8team/java/ubuntu precise main" | tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list 

echo "deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/webupd8team/java/ubuntu precise main" | tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list 

apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys EEA14886 

apt-get update


Then select the Java version you want to install:
  •  Java 6
    apt-get install oracle-java6-installer 
  •  Java 7
    apt-get install oracle-java7-installer
  •  Java8
    apt-get install oracle-java8-installer  

And that's all.
