Chromium and Java

Today i have added a Java plugin to my Chromium browser and here is how I’ve done this:

  1. I have downloaded Java from here
  2. changed the file permissions:
    # chmod a+x jre-6u<java-version>-linux-i586-rpm.bin
  3.  runned it
    # su -c ‘./jre-6u<java-version>-linux-i586-rpm.bin’
  4.  created i symbolic link do libnpjp2.so
    # ln -s <java-directory>/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so <path-to-chromium-dir>/plugins/libnpjp2.so
  5. finally tested the java applet using link
    http://www.java.com/en/download/help/testvm.xml 
  6. one more thing: if You get a popup message regarding java permissions just click “Always run on this site”
That’s all.
