Until today I always have problem running Java with Ubuntu ?! Is there a logical answer, why Java doesn't work as good with Linux as with Windows. I don't have a Windows Computer since several years and so I have to run Java with Linux.

What do you mean by "not working"? It's perfectly working. BUT. It comes with OpenJDK. Which is the open-source implementation (boo closed-source is evil). However, you can install the closed source Sun JDK/JRE with ease. ... Okay I can't find my answer.

Here it is:

sudo add-apt-repository “deb lucid partner”
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin sun-java6-fonts

That's it.
