You need to make the java files executable in order to install in Ubuntu 12.04.
Execute the commands: cd /sys/java/jre/glnxa64/jre/bin,
chmod +x java
This will make java executable. Other easier way is to navigate to the '/sys/java/jre/glnxa64/jre/bin' folder and right-click on 'java' file. Click 'Properties'. In the Permissions tab, check the box against 'Allow executing file as a program'.
Note: You cannot change the java permission if the installer files are located on a drive with NTFS file system. The files necessarily need to be on a drive with ext3 file system.
Now start the installation. Enjoy!
