    Re: Java install

    I'm having trouble enabling Java. (And it had been working fine up until recently, so I'm not sure what happened.)

    When I type ~$ java -version, I get:

    java version "1.7.0_03"
    OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea7 2.1.1pre) (7~u3-2.1.1~pre1-1ubuntu3)
    OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 22.0-b10, mixed mode)

    In both my browsers (Chromium and Firefox) I have IceTea-Web plugin enabled.

    When I go to the Java test page, I just get blank white space where the applet should be (ditto with the NY Times crossword applet, which is my main concern). If I disable IceTea, I get the puzzle piece icon (and grey box where the applet is) telling me the plug-in is disabled.

    What am I missing?

    Re: Java install

    You've probably come across the situation where some websites refuse to acknowledge the open source version of Java (OpenJDK), even though it is the reference standards compliant version that every site should work with.

    Try installing the closed source Oracle version instead, this should solve your problem.

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer

    Re: Java install

    Thanks. I'm trying this.

    I don't understand why support would have changed suddenly (and apparently so universally). Things worked fine for me for months up until a few days ago.

    Re: Java install

    Thanks, Cheesemill. That did the trick.

    After installing Oracle's Java, "java -version" told me I was still running the OpenJDK version, so I had to do

    Code:
    sudo update-alternatives --config java
    and select the Oracle version.
