I've looked at the other questions asked on this subject and I got OpenJDK and its plugin for web browsers but it isn't working for me. Please help me here, would be much appreciated if someone could give me a series of commands to write into terminal to install it.

Chrome(ium) no longer support NPAPI plugins (in Linux) beyond version 35. Until there is a PPAPI plugin for Java, it cannot be used in Chrome(ium). – saiarcot895 May 20 '15 at 23:31
