Installing Java for Chrome


I'm a linux noob. I recenlty got Zorin os11 Ultimate on my PC, which I love.
The file used to do an extensive netork test (unixrta.tar). I tried using the Synaptic Package Manager but without success.

What do I need to do?

Hi...

Since Zorin is Ubuntu based, please see the choices and instructions here. If you want the Oracle version, the instructions here make installation pretty easy, if you want the latest stable version, which is 8. For 7, go here.

EDIT: Just found this page. It looks like if you want support for java in Chrome, you will also need to find a version that is older than 45. I'm not sure how the Open Source version would work, in this case.

Regards...

Yeah, thus the nevermind. About the time I hit the post button I realized I had confused flash & java, and edited the post, couldn't delete it. Temporary brain fart, happens to me sometimes.

I am afraid that you cannot install Java for Chrome anymore. You see, Chrome has stopped supporting NPAPI, which is required for Java applets to work on Chrome. Without NPAPI, plugins such as Silverlight, Java, Facebook Video and other similar NPAPI based plugins will no longer work. You may find more info about it at https://java.com/en/download/faq/chrome.xml

Alternatively, you may install Java 8 alone via terminal. Using this method should allow most but not all plugins on Chrome. Just open terminal and enter the following commands:
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer
