You don't have to do that anymore. Just add non-free to /etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://debian.oregonstate.edu/debian/ testing non-free

(with your mirror and version)

then update your package list and look for the sun-java packages.


Many thanks. The install went smoothly, but I am experiencing some
problems with Java based apps. FrostWire never seems to connect to a
network and I have to force quit it to quit the app.

I also installed the latest version of JRisk, but I got errors with
that when I started up:

Risk version:

Being a newbie, I unfortunately can't tell if these issues are with
Java or with the apps themselves. Any ideas?
