I hate problems with java/icedtea on ubuntu. On karmic java applets worked somehow with icedtea plugin. On lucid (10.04.1) all worked perfectly just out of the box (after installing ubuntu-restricted-extras). maverik - whatever I was doing - without success -- either icedtea or sun-java does't work correctly for me. Problem is, that applets in firefox does not close after game was finished and stay running all the time until I close firefox (or any other browser such as google chrome/chromium).
Look at www.chess.lt click 'Play' and try to close applet...
Currently I use Java Version 1.6.0_22 from Sun Microsystems Inc.
Any help would be appreciated.

Tired of solving the problem on 10.10, I've turned back to ubuntu 10.04 and with latest updates the problem persist now even with lucid . I think it happen when latest Ubuntu updates came.
I think it's ridiculous to use windows OS only for playing java games because ubuntu can't properly handle it.
any suggestions so far?...
sun-java works very well in linux just like in windows!
all you have to do is install sun-java6-plugin! (from the archive.canonical partner repository)
remove all openjdk-java and icedtea packages!
and don't make any java system links (unless you are installing java from sun-java website), it mite mess up you system!

Please look at http://www.chess.lt/cgi_bin/default.asp?Lang=E and click <play!> link and try close the applet...
Any solution please! I can't believe there isn't any... or should I better report a problem to launchpad?

So no suggestions as I understand, no any idea what to do... indeed its very sad to realise that I should use WinOS for playing chess.
anyone have a version of this fix for ubuntu 12.10? Tried to retrace the steps but it doesn't work. Can't seem to find any versions of java that fit this bill.
