I installed both jdk and flashplayer.

For example, when I visit this Java applet test site, this message appears.

"Missing plug-in".

I have in my /opt/jdk1.7.0_01/jre/lib/amd64/

the file libjavaplugin_jni.so.

I linked it in /opt/google/chrome and run the browser with --enable-plugins option, but the plugin it seems to be not loaded.

How can I fix tjis?

  • I think the problem is for Java applet. But I don't know how to resolve it. I use Debian, and I read that probably I have to put a flashplugin file into the chrome plugin folder. But nothing change!

  • For example if I'm going on a site where is a Java applet, the applet is not loading but there is a message that says: "Missing plug-in".

Did you try to install chromium and java from debian?

You could use java and chromium from stable by installing chromium-browser and icedtea6-plugin packages, chromium-browser is quite old, but is chromium from debian.

Or you could use package from testing: (if you already use testing or unstable just install the needed package)

Go to http://jaqque.sbih.org/kplug/apt-pinning.html for configuration of mixed stable/testing installation. then

apt-get install chromium/testing

will install a recent chromium as a Debian package and

apt-get install default-jre/testing
apt-get install icedtea-plugin/testing

and java should work.

Note the current (15.0.874.106~r107270-1) chromium from unstable is badly broken, don't try to install it.


Google chrome v.35 dropped support to java.

My suggestion, for now, is:

  • downgrade to chrome v.34
  • install firefox


Download site: http://mirror.pcbeta.com/google/chrome/deb/pool/main/g/google-chrome-stable/


you need a java applet, if you are using WinOS then Check your control panel if there's a Java there, or else try to download it @ java.com I forgot the name of java, to run it to your Firefox or Chrome...or try to use Firefox first because I already tried running Games or GUI based in Firefox...

  • The OP is on Linux.
