Chrome Unable to install JAVA plugin


hI, hope you're doing well

i am wondering to play some online games, the problem is
chrome says "JAVA Plugin" is missing,

Kindly note i've already followed java installation instruction given at Java website.have a look at following output

Code:
root@debian:~# java -version
java version "1.6.0_27"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.12.6) (6b27-1.12.6-1~deb7u1)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.0-b12, mixed mode)
root@debian:~#
But Chrome is still unable to find java plugin even after restart.

how to fix this? any help would be great

Code:
~$ java -version
java version "1.7.0_21"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.3.9) (7u21-2.3.9-5)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.7-b01, mixed mode)
Maybe your Java version is a bit too old? What website fails to work because of Java on your system?
jdk (not Java)

I tried your link using Chrome and it doesn't work indeed. Maybe the problem has something to do with this message?
Quote:
This game cannot be played on this computer. Supported Platforms: Windows and OSX
I have no idea if this is your problem since you are not very generous with the details of your problem. For example, what game did you try to run? I tried it on Black Sun. The site does not support linux which is the probable cause of your problem. Plenty of other sites of this kind do support linux. I'd suggest you try them.
jdk

Why do you run java as root? (shown in your post #1) Can you run java as a normal user? Have you installed the icedtea-7-plugin package?
Have you tried installing a more up to date version of icedtea? Using the version of Java shown in post #2 I can access the sites you mention in your Testjava link and they find java with no problem.
jdk
