[Lubuntu-desktop] Java/IcedTea not working in Chromium

2010-06-06 Thread Carsten Agger
I'm using Lubuntu 10.04 on my netbook, an Acer Aspire 110 with 512 megs of
RAM, and it's generally a pleasure.

I have one problem, though - the Java plugin seems not to be working in
Chromium. I want to play Runescape, the MMORPG at www.runescape.com.

What I'm getting is basically a blank (rather, black, the HTML background)
page where the Java applet should be.

I installed Java and the plugin by installing the
ubuntu-restricted-extras package which pulled the openjdk and icedtea
versions of Java and plugin. This works FINE in Firefox on Ubuntu 10.04 on
my other computer.

Anybody knows what's wrong or how to put it right? :-) Is there a problem
with Java and Chromium? Maybe not, though - epiphany seems to give the
same result (I won't install Firefox).

Try checking about:plugins in Chromium, and see if your Java plugin's being
detected by Chromium. Chances are that it wasn't installed properly though
(check update-alternatives --display mozilla-javaplugin.so, and that the
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin.so link isn't broken).

2010-06-06 Thread Andrew Woodhead
try:

cd /usr/lib/chromium-browser/plugins; sudo ln -s
/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/jre/lib/i386/IcedTeaPlugin.so

Should be ok.

Personally I use the .bin file from www.java.com as all the systems I'd need
java on are 64bit. I then symlink the libnpjp2.so to the plugins folder and
it works.

Java and flash n Ubuntu all run at 32bit via a 64bit wrapper which I think
is horribly convoluted and ungraceful despite there being 64bit native
plugins available.

 Thanks, will try that. As I said, the funny thing is that this works
 fine in Ubuntu Desktop 10.04, with Firefox. This might mean it's due to
 some bug/missing dependency in Lubuntu packaging?

 And, maybe it would be nice with a lubuntu-restricted-extras package
 with things that work (like Sun Java instead of Iced Tea) and possibly
 more lightweight selections in some cases?

 (I know, wishing out loud instead of doing something about it myself.
 Alas, I like using Lubuntu but don't have time to contribute to
 development at this time.)

Sure but the plugin is proprietary and the open versions do not have the
full range of stuff which the Adobe one does.

 I can understand not installing Firefox but Chromium maybe isn't the
 answer until it's completed? I could argue that using Google software is
 like using Windows - a sell out to the corporates - but i do not want a
 flame war thank you!

 I'd suggest giving Midori a try - it's very quick and light on resources.
 It runs fine on my Samsung 6000 with 256 ram and Lubuntu. Link for it is:

Java support on Chromium is quite unstable, it was working sometimes
during Lucid cycle, but it seems now problematic. See
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/chromium-browser/+bug/529242
Also note that if it's working on Firefox, it doesn't mean it will work
on Chromium.

 And, maybe it would be nice with a lubuntu-restricted-extras package
 with things that work (like Sun Java instead of Iced Tea) and possibly
 more lightweight selections in some cases?
It's ready, will be uploaded in a few hours ;-)

Hmm, at any rate it seems sun-java6-plugin is no longer in the

Maybe I really should try an alternative to Chromium. Anyone has the

Never had an issue but I use java from the java people rather than some
package.

 You have to enable the partner repository


Thanks! Chromium and Java works just fine with Sun's Java. It would be
much nicer if it would work with icedtea and openjdk, of course. Hope the
bug in chromium will be fixed (the xulrunner workaround in the bug Julien
linked to didn't work for me).
