Restricted extra’s in hardy, there’s a catch!
As most of you know, installing the “ubuntu-restricted-extras” is a fast and easy way to install lots of much needed stuff in ubuntu.
Well, in the hardy release they decided to put “open-java” in there instead of java6.
People install the restricted extras so their media and apps would work. Putting in open-java was a bad move and will only add another step in the customizing process.
I had to remove the package from synaptic and install “sun-java6-jre” and the plugin from synaptic to get frostwire running.
