Running ECi Advantage in Linux Mint and Ubuntu

Here's a quick rundown; there are just a few commands to run.

First, get rid of the openjdk that comes in Ubuntu:
sudo apt-get purge openjdk*

Now add a repo, update the OS, and install java from that repo
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer

NextGen needs Arial, which is an MS font, so you also need a:
sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

From a command line, run jcontrol to set security level down. NextGen won't run otherwise.
