Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I installed OpenJDK 1.6 and 1.7 to my system, and IcedTea for Chrome. When I go to the JRE detect page, after the IcedTea screen, a grey box appears. I tried every way I could find in the internet, I couldn't make it work.

  1. IcedTea-Web Plugin (using IcedTea-Web 1.4 (1.4-3ubuntu2.1)) - Version: 1.4 is activated in chrome://plugins.
  2. Created an IcedTeaPlugin.so link in /usr/lib/chromium-browser/plugins (created plugins directory myself).

Is there a way to identify the source of the problem?
