So I have been trying for ages to install Java on my Mac OSX 10.7 However whenever I try i always get an error message reading:


The Installer Can't create the folder /var/folders/8b/lbm4fmhx5034tjfkqff62trm0000gn/T//Install.395ShLD8T


For some reason I cannot find the answer In any of the forums, and I cannot open Java Preferences In my utilities. Help, anyone?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7)
