    Default Chromium Can't Find Java Plugin

    Not sure what has changed, but Chromium no longer finds the Java plugin. It is not listed under aboutlugins

    I have created the symlink /usr/lib64/browser-plugins/libnpjp2.so -> /usr/java/jdk1.8.0_05/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so
    I have even tried the latest Java 7 instead.

    I have also tried the remedy found on https://www.java.com/en/download/hel...ser_ubuntu.xml
    Placing the Java plugin under /opt/google/chrome/plugins/

    As a last resort I have tried using the OpenJDK IcedTead Java plugin. No luck there either.

    Chrome no longer has instructions for Java on Linux

    Chrome/Chromium 35 doesn't support Netscape plugins any more.

    If you need the java plugin, either downgrade chromium to V34 (still available in the update repo), or use a different browser.

    I thought I read something about that. No longer support for NPAPI.

    I was hoping there was a workaround, other than downgrade. Would be great if the Java plugin could support PPAPI.
