"Thanks, Alexander. I must have already installed that, though, since when I typed "sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre" I got the reply that the latest version was already installed. Perhaps the OpenJDK is still installed and that's…"

Alex Anderson replied to Mike Blyth's discussion Instructions for Linux installation?
"Hi Mike,   Sounds like you're using OpenJDK as your Java implementation.  I think since Ubuntu 10.10 this is the default JVM used, and it doesn't have support for certain standard libraries which are required for graphical user…"
