Hi, as far as I know Oracle disabled Java 8 access for personal use etc. No ppa. How about OpenJDK? Other ideas?

    Notice that most of the things that OpenJDK isn't compatible with Oracle Java 8 are desktop integrations: Proxy settings and clicking on repositories to open these with the native browser. I remember that a few months ago we were discussing this. For the rest, there shouldn't be a problem.


    All the best,
