IDE and linux 10.04 LTS (circa 2013)

I have an old netbook (Dell Mini9) that I would like to use for Arduino work.

It is running 10.04 (2013 or so) and bringing it to a newer version of linux seems a bit problematic.

I do not see (yet) minimum system requirements for the latest IDE, I expect some java dependancies and more.

I thought I would see ongoing mentions of minimum system requirements here: https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/ReleaseNotes

Is it just Java 8 needed, from the 1.6.6 release notes back in 2015?

Where can I find a more complete list?

Thanks!
