Hi Patrick,

To return to your original request about Java, Oracle have prevented it
being easily available in distributions' own package managers because of a
license change. There's a PPA that gives you easy access to the latest
versions of Java 6, 7 and 8.  If you go to
https://launchpad.net/~webupd8team/+archive/java it has instructions on how
to install and use the PPA.
