Oracle Java in Linux Mint/Pinguy OS and Ubuntu derivatives

 

Initially the release of the Java SE 8 was planned to release in September 2013, but the development schedule has been changed in connection with the decision on conducting an extraordinary work to strengthen the Java security 7, which were deployed by many involved in the development of Java 8 engineers.

 

New in Java SE 8:

Install Java 8 into Linux Mint
Open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T), copy and execute the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer
After installation, you can check the version of the Java command in the terminal:
java -version
