    google "java raspberry pi", second result: oracle.com/technetwork/articles/java/raspberrypi-1704896.html also, this seems to work: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-jdk

  • @LuWi what is "Java® SE Embedded"? Is this a specific version of Java for Raspberry Pi?

    it's a footprint-reduced version of java SE (Standard Edition), especially made for embedded systems with less-than-normal memory. But I think that gets installed with @recantha s code anyway.

In newer distributions, Java is already installed so you might find you already have it. If all else fails, try:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-jdk
