Install Sun Java JRE on XBMCbuntu Eden

While XBMCbuntu comes with OpenJDK pre-installed you may need to install the Sun Java JRE for some apps(like minecraft) to function correctly.  To install sun-java6-jdk in XBMCbuntu SSH into your XBMCbuntu box and run the following:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ferramroberto/java

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk sun-java6-plugin

During the install you will be prompted to agree to the java terms of service(hit Tab to highlight the ok button)

If you want to make Sun Java the default java for your system run this command:

sudo update-alternatives --config java

Alternatively if you want to leave OpenJDK as the default but run specific programs with Sun's java then run:

Note: if you are still using the older XBMCLive Dharma you can follow this guide to install java

And that's it, have fun!
