    OpenJDK and Chrome/Chromium on Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit

    I have been trying to get OpenJDK 6 or 7 working with chrome/chromium for a while now. I have downloaded the latest updates and have tried with openjdk 1.7.0_13 and 1.6.0_27 to no avail. I installed the icedtea plugin, of course.

    >Firefox works fine with both openjdk versions
    >Chrome/Chromium words fine with oracle 7 update 13
    Chromium Version 24.0.1312.56 Ubuntu 12.04 (24.0.1312.56-0ubuntu0.12.04.1)
    Google ChromeVersion 24.0.1312.70


    I have tried purging all openjdk files and fresh installing 6, purging, and installing 7 with no luck. I have been using javatester.org to test the web browser plugins using firefox, chrome, and chromium.

    Does anyone have any suggestions, or do I just have to use the oracle java? (I am trying to be pro-opensource)

    dino99, can you give me a better site to test java with?

    I tried this site <http://www.w3.org/2000/07/8378/object/java/clock> using chromium and openjdk7
    Chromium asked me if I wanted to run the script on this page, I clicked "always run" and the clocks are just gray boxes. This site works on firefox.

    I have been doing some reading, and it seems it was a known issue with chromium and the icedtea plugin <https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...b/+bug/1025553>

    However, I have the latest version running in chromium (IcedTea-Web 1.2 (1.2-2ubuntu1.3)) and I still get only gray boxes where java applets are supposed to be running. I get the prompt to allow the script to run, but after clicking always allow, I get only a gray box.

    The official chrome for windows has java built in and on my 32-bit 12.10 machine I am running the official chrome with no problem. Although I have openjdk 7 installed and icedtea I do not know if it would run without it.

    (I am trying to be pro-opensource)
    Although it is not opensource, official google chrome works very well on 12.04 and 12.10. I also tried the site for testing java and that works fine.

    Post back if you want me to show you the quick and easy way to install it.
