I am attempting to update my Sun Java to version 1.7.0_07. I have downloaded the "Linux x64 (.tar file)" followed the instructions found on http://java.com/en/download/help/linux_x64_install.xml.
I then followed the instructions from http://www.java.com/en/download/help/li ... xml#enable and have successfully enabled the java version for Firefox.
Ideally I would like to enable the same java system wide, though this version is not available within the repositories.
Though Google Chromium states that I've installed the same version... when I have a look at the plugins page it still states to download security update as below
"Java - Version: 1.7.0_07 Download Critical Security Update
Java plug-in for NPAPI-based browsers."
I also think that I haven't installed it correctly because when I load youtube video's it appears differently (ie different layout and different icons available within the youtube video) as it does within firefox, and when I play the video fullscreen it doesn't appear as "nice" and is slightly choppy as opposed to firefox's playback.
please note: The choppy playback was happening in firefox prior to updating and enabling manually the newest java.
* Please note that I do not want to install the icetea version of java.
Questions: Is there a better or easier way to install Sun Java 1.7.0_07?
How do I enable this within Chromium?
Can I enable this java system wide?
My current configuration is as follows
Linux Version: Sabayon 10 (64 bit)
java-config --list-available-vms (command output): *) Oracle JRE 22.214.171.124 [oracle-jre-bin-1.7]
This is also the outcome of the following command.
- Code: Select all
punzilla plugins # java-config --list-available-vms
