Java (OpenJDK) in Chromium Debian & Ubuntu

I’ve found the below combination to work well for any browser Java needs. Here’s how I got it working:

Install OpenJDK

sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jre

Install the IcedTea java browser plugin

sudo apt-get install icedtea-8-plugin

Navigate to your Chromium plugins folder

cd /usr/lib/chromium/plugins

Create a symbolic link to the IcedTea Plugin

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64/jre/lib/amd64/

That should be it
