Installing Oracle Java on Ubuntu – summary

Each time I do this, I have to search the Web to remember where the PPA is and what packages to install, so this time I’m summarizing the steps here:

  1. Add the WebUpd8Team Java PPA:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
  2. Install the installer package (downloads the Oracle installer from Oracle’s repository):
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer
  3. To set up required environment variables:
    sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-set-default
