I tried installing sun-java6-jdk on Ubuntu 10.04 using Synaptic. The
instructions I followed said that I would have to accept the license, an

None of that happened.
What do I need to do to fix this?
The first time you install it, with synaptic, you have to have the
comments (or whatever the heck it's called) window open when it gets to
the point of installing files. That's when the license announce comes
up. Tricky bit, too. It's easy to mess up, but just try again, that's
free. Or, since you already have the file in /var/cache/apt/archives
apt-get install packagename should do the trick, too. $
I'm not sure what window you mean even after looking through all of
synaptics settings. Marking it for reinstallation and looking for a way
to open another window to see the license agreement was unsuccessful.
Here is the results of apt-get:
$ sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
sun-java6-jdk is already the newest version.
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 6 not upgraded.
I did notice that in Applications-->System tools I have something called
Sun Java 6 VisualVM but I don't know how long that has been there.
The whole problem was a false alarm. I found that I can compile and and
run a small java test program, so it must be installed even though I did
not see what the howto led me to believe I would. Sorry for the noise.
