I've installed JRE (from .tar.gz with my console) When i check zsh it's installed:

➜  plugins  update-java-alternatives -l                  
java-7-oracle 1 /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-oracle
➜  plugins  java -version
java version "1.7.0_21"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_21-b11)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.21-b01, mixed mode)

I've created symlinks for chrome as in here http://java.com/en/download/help/enable_browser_ubuntu.xml But when i visit test website i get a popup that tells me that java is an old version, and when i enter website that uses java i get a popup saying "Update plug-in" How can i solve this error? Please help!

Update 1
it is enabled:
Java(TM) (2 files) Java plug-in for NPAPI-based browsers.

It is activated in the brwoser? Check the output of chrome://plugins in the Adressbar of chrome. –  prophecy201 Apr 18 '13 at 10:11

Please use the instructions on this website which tells you how to install either 32bit or 64 bit Java. It's worked for me without any problems. sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/java –  scouser73 Apr 18 '13 at 11:16
