How to install Java 7 on Ubuntu? (Easy method)

2014-02-10 Linux

Another way (much more easier than the one I previously posted on May ’13) to install Java 7 under Ubuntu is presented below.

You don’t have to edit any files manually. Just type these commands in terminal with sudo:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer

While upgrading your repositories, your Java will be up to date.
