You can try to install the Oracle Java via the Ubuntu Software Manager/Update Manager/PackageKit/Package Manager, if it is an option. Please note that you may have to temporarily disable the IcedTea plugin in Tools (Alt + T) > Add-ons > Plugins to prevent conflicts when playing Java content in Firefox. Posting in the Ubuntu forums would also be very helpful.
