I have updated to 12.04 LTS from 10.04 LTS because I could not get java to test as working on http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp
... I still can't get java working.
- I have installed icedtea and the openjdk through the software center.
- I have run 'apt-get update; apt-get upgrade'.
- I have tried Chrome and Firefox.
- I have read all over the Internet and this problem keeps coming up. For example: icedtea-7-plugin non-functional in Ubuntu 13.04 I have followed the instructions there and elsewhere and java still fails to validate and run for me and, apparently, a lot of people.
I am out of ideas and java still does not validate and run for me.
Any help would most definitely be appreciated.
