Using debian 7, with chromium as my browser, I got jdk6-64 bit installed on my debian But my chromium won't run java applets, it's saying it's missing on each website that try to run java.

How do I fix this?

thank you

What is the exact error you're getting? – Taegost Jul 31 '13 at 14:16
No error, my chromium is just saying "missing plugin" – Javaneed Jul 31 '13 at 14:24
Do applets work in other browsers? Are you sure you have installed the java plugin and not just the jdk (development kit)? – terdon Jul 31 '13 at 15:23

removing proprietary Java runtime and it's config files and installing its opensource substitution may help. Debian is known for it's unfriendly attitude to non-free packages.

sudo apt-get purge default-jre
sudo apt-get install openjdk
