Installing Java 8 on our VNC Plans Print

  • Java 8, Ubuntu

It is very simple to install Java 8 on our VNC plans. First, you'll need to connect via SSH, your SSH port is 6000 if you're on a plan that can use the webviewer.

If you do not know how then you can follow the tutorial available here:

The commands you'd need to run in the terminal to install the software are:

sudo apt-get install software-properties-common -y
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer

// Verify it's installed.
java -version

If you get errors regarding "sudo" then please run this command: apt-get install sudo

That should cover it, as always if you have issues please contact our support.
