Ubuntu :: Getting The Icedtea Java Plugin To Work Properly On Chromium?

getting the icedtea java plugin to work properly on Chromium. When I go to and go to Arcanists, I usually get to the login screen, and sometimes I'm even able to login, but right after that, it crashes with an error message (Something like Icedtea plugin crashed unexpectedly).

OpenSUSE :: Icedtea Web Plugin - Flavorless Replacement For Java
Java 1.6.0 browser plugin has been replaced by Icedtea plugin in the last update. Unfortunately, Firefox now complains that java isn't enabled when, of course, it still is. The new plug-in is also listed in the FF add-ons. I assume this isn't the intended effect of the update?

openSUSE 11.4; KDE 4.6.4; AMD Phenom II X2 550 Processor;
Video: nVidia GeForce 210; Sound: ATI SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA);
Wireless: BCM4306

OpenSUSE :: FireFox 5.0 - With IcedTea - Plugin Error: "Failed To Run /usr/lib64/jvm/java-1.6.0-openjdk/jre/bin/java"
I use openSUSE 11.4 64 bits, KDE and FireFox 5.0. I regularly update. When trying to reach my bank, I get the following error: Code: icedteanp plugin error: Failed to run /usr/lib64/jvm/java-1.6.0-openjdk/jre/bin/java. For more detail rerun "firefox -g" in a terminal window. Is there anything I can do to remediate ? Does IcedTea everything that Java does?

Debian :: OpenJDK And Icedtea - Plugin Conflicts
I have the following packages of openjdk and icedtea installed.
i openjdk-6-jre†- OpenJDK Java runtime, using Hotspot JIT
i†openjdk-6-jre-headless†- OpenJDK Java runtime, using Hotspot JIT (headless)†
i†openjdk-6-jre-lib†- OpenJDK Java runtime (architecture independent libraries)
i†icedtea-6-jre-cacao†- Alternative JVM for OpenJDK, using Cacao
i A icedtea-6-jre-jamvm†- Alternative JVM for OpenJDK, using JamVM

Now I am not a developer or anything just a user. My use-case are two :-
a. Running java programs on the desktop
b. Running java in the web-browser.

I *think* both of them get installed by default. Openjdk via the default-jre virtual package while icedtea due to some of the openjdk headless packages.
~$ aptitude why openjdk-6-jre
i†default-jre Depends openjdk-6-jre (>= 6b23~pre8-2~)
~$ aptitude why icedtea-6-jre-jamvm
i†openjdk-6-jre-headless Recommends icedtea-6-jre-jamvm (= 6b23~pre8-2)
~$ aptitude why openjdk-6-jre-headless
i openjdk-6-jre-lib Depends openjdk-6-jre-headless (>= 6b17)
$ aptitude why openjdk-6-jre-lib
i†openjdk-6-jre-headless Depends openjdk-6-jre-lib (>= 6b23~pre8-2)

Notice the circular dependency at the end. From what I read the headless packages are basically for those systems where a server is running which does not have have a monitor, in which case I wonder why its installed in my system? My actual issue is of having the java for iceweasel. I did search for having java plugins and did not find anything except for icedtea-plugin to run java on my browser.

Trying to install it through gave conflicts :-
$ sudo aptitude install icedtea-plugin
[sudo] password for shirish:

The following NEW packages will be installed:
icedtea-netx{a} icedtea-plugin xulrunner-1.9.1{ab}
0 packages upgraded, 3 newly installed, 0 to remove and 4 not upgraded.
Need to get 8,642 kB/9,103 kB of archives. After unpacking 26.5 MB will be used.

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
openjdk-6-jre-headless: Conflicts: icedtea-netx (< 1.1.1-2~) but 1.1-1 is to be installed.
xulrunner-1.9.1: Depends: libmozjs2d (= but is installed.
The following actions will resolve these dependencies:

Keep the following packages at their current version:
1)†icedtea-netx [Not Installed]
2)†icedtea-plugin [Not Installed]†
3)†xulrunner-1.9.1 [Not Installed]

Accept this solution? [Y/n/q/?] q
Abandoning all efforts to resolve these dependencies.

I did see the other solutions but most of them recommend downgrading both the openjdk and icedtea packages to the ones in testing rather than in unstable.

OpenSUSE :: Java Plugin Doesn't Work In Firefox 3.6
It seems that there is no way for me to install java plugin in firefox 3.6. I've already read some threads about similar problems but none of the solutions that worked for other people work for me. So I decided to open a new thread. Following instructions of other threads, I uninstalled all java packages and installed again just the three that you can see below, but nothing changed.

Opensuse 11.1
KDE 4.4.1
Firefox 3.6

# rpm --query --all '*java*'

Slackware :: Installing Java Error - When Trying To Run A Java App With The Firefox Plugin - Browser Crashe
Code: ~ $ /usr/java/jre1.6.0_25/bin/java -showversion Error occurred during initialization of VMjava/lang/NoClassDefFoundError: java/lang/Object

That's the error I get. When trying to run a java app with the firefox plugin, the browser simply crashes if it's the 64bit java or tells me it's not installed if it's the 32bit version.

I'm at a loss as to what to do. I think it has something to do with leftover gunk from a previous version I misinstalled(Is that even a word?) Anyway, the only thing that google could come up with was a solution for windows which laid blame on Bill Gates for having a bunch of pf (java prefetch) files stuffed into c:windows for no apparent reason. The solution was to delete them, but I can't seem to find the java prefetch folder in linux. The method I used is downloading the rpm from the rpm2tgz then installpkg then cp to firefox plugins folder.

Debian :: Install The Java Plugin But The Java Test Pages Show Not Installed
I try to install the java plugin but the java test pages show not installed. I have tried the openjdk-6-jdk package and the Oracle/Sun 1.6.0_26 version to no avail.

Is there some good instructions page someplace? I have yet to find a set of instructions that provides something clear that works.

Ubuntu :: Chromium Not Displaying Facebook Properly?
I have an issue where chromium is not displaying facebook properly. Here's a screenshot:

I would switch to the stable release but the stable release of chrome has a bug whereby the search bar keeps reseting its default search engine (wiping out all the info leaving the search bar un-usable) when google chrome stable is re-started.

Ubuntu :: Chromium Shockwave Flash Plugin Crashed After Update
after running an upgrade chromium browser shockwave flash plugin crashed! if you have the same problem i have a workaround. firstly open firefox goto a website that uses flash (not videos) i used bbc iplayer, then right click and click on "settings..." the left most tab shows the "enable hardware acceleration" tickbox. untick it

then close and reopen chromium and go back to a flash site e.g. videos and test it is working. the reason this worked for me is that there is a bug in either googles chromium or the unix/x11 build of shockwave flash or my graphics card drivers. there seems to sevral bug reports regarding this on the net [url]. flash could be a little slower now it doesn't have the hardware accelerating it. so maybe the setting could be re-enabled in the future?

Ubuntu :: Chromium Doesn't Render Japanese Fonts Properly
So far, as a former Chrome user on Windows, I am enjoying Chromium. However, there is one glaring problem that is bugging me, and is disrupting my usage of the browser.

Chromium will not show Japanese fonts properly. It's not that everything shows up as boxes. The problem is that certain characters will show in Japanese, and certain will show in Korean, thereby making the Japanese text unreadable. Copying and pasting into gedit allows me to read the Japanese text, and Firefox never had this problem, however, within Chromium, this is unreadable.

Here is a picture to show you what I mean:

Has anyone else had this problem, and fixed it? I have installed the language packs and have tried setting things to different unicode fonts and changing the encoding to unicode and even Japanese, and continue to get these errors.

Ubuntu :: Enable Java Script In Chromium & FF?
Recently, while trying to do a bank transaction using chromium browser, I had to abandon it midway because I was told that java script was not enabled.

Got the same message in FF as well. Then, I went back to Windows & completed the job using IE.

How to enable the java script on chromium? I don't find an option in the browser's settings.

Edit: I found later that java script was in fact enabled in FF; but the Bank page still popped out the message that it was not enabled.

Fedora :: Java On Chromium - Game Not Loading
I'm trying to play this game called RuneScape. However it seems that it won't load on my chromium. Maybe somethings wrong with java idk. If you can go to this website [URL] Just click play now and tell me if it runs for you or not. If it does run can you tell me what you did to make your java work. Because for me the screen just stays black and doesn't load, but it works well on firefox, but I don't like that it uses too much of my ram. So I'd rather try to get chromium up and running for me.

Ubuntu :: Get Java Plugin Onto Firefox ?
At first, I enabled the partner source and installed "sun-java6-plugin", as that was listed in an earlier Ubuntu install's package list. But Firefox does not see this plugin (even after a reboot). So I removed that package and its friends, and installed "icedtea6-plugin" as found on [url], but this does not work, either. This is with Ubuntu 10.10 for i386 on an ASUS Eee PC 900.

How to get a Java plugin working? I know I've had it working before without having to do anything like this. But that could have been an earlier version of Firefox. Could Firefox now be broken? Or could they have blocked Java, now?

Ubuntu :: Can't Get Java Plugin Working On 11.04
I am trying to get the java plugin extension for firefox so that I can run some java applications. I've modified the repositories, run sudo-apt-update, and run apt-get install java6-plugin (among other things). I thought this was successful because when I go to synaptic package manager the sun-java6 things are marked as installed. But when I open up firefox and look at my extensions, there is no java6 plugin!

Ubuntu :: Firefox And Java Plugin ?
I opened Firefox, and tried to use an Internet speed tester that requires Java. I've always used this with no problems. Today, I'm having problems with it. It told me to check that my Java plugin was enabled, or whatnot. I looked at Tools > Add-Ons > Plugins, and found that Java is gone....

What's up with that? I'm using the latest version of Firefox (version 3.6.8 / Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu cononical - 1.0) on Ubuntu 9.10.

I checked with Synaptic Package Manager, and I found sun-java6-jre, and all of it's related packages, openjdk-6jre-* packages, etc. were installed (over ten packages with 'java' or 'jre' and '6' in the package names).

So, I don't understand why Tools > Add-Ons > Plugins doesn't show my java plugin anymore. I also checked about: plugins (had to put a space between the colon and 'plugins' because a smiley shows up aboutlugins), but there was nothing in there about java either.

What's going on? Has Ubuntu decided it doesn't want to use Java (I remember reading something about Oracle changing the license for Sun Java somewhere)? Or is this a fluke?

Either way. Synaptic Package Manager says Java is installed... So, what else do I need to do to fix this? I read other posts about Firefox and Java, but they were about installing java, and the like, and I have Java installed....
