I found instructions to install Java with apt-get, it worked fine until I got screen where it asks to press ok button. Well I'm on SSH connection, so mouse is not working, so how am I supposed to press this ok button? I tried to press enter, space and randomly pressing keys on keyboard, but nothing helps. Is there any way to continue from this ok screen with SSH connection?

Did you try scrolling down through all the licence text? If holding the down arrow key doesn't suffice, a tab at the end should highlight the Ok, and then you can press Enter.

I actually managed to get pass this by pressing arrow keys and then enter. It didn't require reading whole license. – newbie Oct 2 '11 at 18:25
