I just started using Linux today (just used windows until now, had to switch because of reasons), and I can't get Java working on Chromium.
I've got both jdk1.8.0_25 and jre1.8.0._25 as files in my home folder, but java just isn't showing up in my chrome plug-ins.
I tried to follow the instructions here
, and was able to get to my plug-ins directory. But when I try to create a symbolic link, I get the following message:
"ln -s /usr/local/java/jre1.7.0/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so
ln: failed to create symbolic link ‘./libnpjp2.so’: File exists"
But Java still isn't working, so I'm really confused. If possible please use really simple language in any replies, because I am super new to this and still have no idea what I'm doing.
