I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 , and I've used the 12th edition and 13th and it was always the same problem for me, java is NOT working on any of my browser : all applets aren't functional, I can't login to some websites and I can't get any of the codepens to work (all I get is "Loading...........") ..etc
I downloaded and installed OpenJDK 1.7.0 and that's what I get when I use the
java version "1.7.0_55" OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.4.7) (7u55-2.4.7-1ubuntu1) OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.51-b03, mixed mode)
I have installed IcedTea using the software center
I'm in Syria, So I can't use Oracle.com.
