I have just installed Ubuntu 16.04, and need to run a Java 7 applet in Firefox, so I installed OpenJDK 7 following the instructions here. Now when I test my java version this is what I get:
% java -version java version "1.7.0_95" OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.6.4) (7u95-2.6.4-3) OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.95-b01, mixed mode)
Now I need the Iced Tea plugin so I can run Java 7 applets in Firefox, but icedtea-7-plugin is no longer available.
% sudo apt install icedtea-7-plugin Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package icedtea-7-plugin is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source E: Package 'icedtea-7-plugin' has no installation candidate
Can anyone tell me where to find the correct plugin and how to install it?
