I found my clock displaying the wrong time so I installed ntp and it works ok now.

I went to the official time website to check but it wants me to install a java runtime plugin. I didn't want to do so through the finder dialog but would rather use synaptic.



Synaptic has the sun-java6-jre package. Would this be the correct one?


Should I have just used the finder service?

I never use a third party site to install plugins, always use your distro's package manager and trusted repositories.
You could use the Sun Java RE or the openjdk jre. Either should work.

yessiree amenditman, never, ever, under any circumstances whatsoever install software from a third party. That's the first thing Bruno said to me six years ago and it's my top rule.

Does the jre include the browser plugin? Seems to me I used to have to make symbolic links or something like that? I haven't done it in a while.

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984
