OK, I downloaded all the *.debs you listed from 
  and still no joy.  I tried installing the bin file using nautilus as  
you advised and it required the jre.  Then I tried installing the jre  
and it needed java-common which I got from and it  
installed fine.  Then I tried the jre again and it needs the bin???   
Still circular....
