Java hell in Linux land - who has current manual?


100% Tier-1 Gogent
I run Linux on the desktop.   For a long while I kept one workstation for dealing with Java needed things.  That workstation is no more as "security" blocks Java due to old version and potential for holiday at the waterpark that would ensue.

Needing to run Java (yeah I hate it and always have) in browser. 

Anyone have a recent Linux how-to for perfecting such without losing ones mine?  Any browser is fine [they all suck in their own way].

(mainly need to use this crapware for things like Proxmox and other remote control VNC shitola).... WHEN WILL THESE COMPANIES DO AWAY WITH JAVA ALL DAMN READY?

If you're running Debian or Ubuntu based systems you can keep your system updated by...

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys 5CB26B26
echo "deb all" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/duinsoft.list
sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install update-sun-jre
