    I was trying to install an extention named Language Tool for Libre Office. But it seems, Language tool requires Java. From where I get Java for Ubuntu and how can I install it?

    Installing the Oracle JRE on Ubuntu isn't all too hard. I've tend to have found that OpenJDK was best, but on my current install I find that I get the most FPS with quite an amazing performance with Oracle's JRE. Basically to install:
    Open a terminal.
    Enter: sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer to get the Java 8 JDK (Which includes the JRE).
    Then enter: sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-set-default to set Oracle's JRE as the default.
    Then you're all done.
