    I did the things you suggested.

    I ran the SUN Java test program on the java website in Chromium. I got the error: "Missing Plug-in".

    Any further help is greatly appreciated!M

    Code:
    aptitude update
    then

    Code:
    aptitude install non-free package sun-java6-plugin
    Should hopefully finish the java install in Debian Chromium.

    Before doing this though.

    Make sure as root, that contrib and non-free repos in /etc/apt/sources.list is enabled.

    Thanks.

    I am looking at my sources.list file now. This is what it looks like:

    Code:
    # 
    
    # deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.2.1 _Squeeze_ - Official amd64 NETINST Binary-1 20110628-12:58]/ squeeze main
    
    #deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.2.1 _Squeeze_ - Official amd64 NETINST Binary-1 20110628-12:58]/ squeeze main
    
    deb h t t p : // f t p . no.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main
    deb-src h t t p : / / f t p . n o.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main
    
    deb h t t p : / / security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main
    deb-src h t t p : / / security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main
    
    # squeeze-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
    deb h t t p : / / f t p .no.debian.org/debian/ squeeze-updates main
    deb-src h t t p : / / f t p . no.debian.org/debian/ squeeze-updates main
    Note: I had to add spaces to the URLs: The forum will not allow me to paste URLs before I have made 15 posts.

    How do I make the mods you said?

    Thanks.M

    Add this to etc/apt/sources.list Open Terminal. SU to root in terminal. Use text editor to edit sources.list example
    Code:
     leafpad /ect/apt/sources.list
    . I show leafpad as just a example for text editor., You can use geany, gedit,mousepad, or nano or vim, whatever you have installed as a text editor can be used that you are comfortable using. Or. You can open your file manager as root
    Code:
    gksu <name of file manager goes here>
    Open your file manager as root. Go to /etc/apt/sources.list. Right click on file and open with text editor and save and close.

    Code:
    # 
    
    # deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.2.1 _Squeeze_ - Official amd64 NETINST Binary-1 20110628-12:58]/ squeeze main
    
    #deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.2.1 _Squeeze_ - Official amd64 NETINST Binary-1 20110628-12:58]/ squeeze main
    
    deb h t t p : // f t p . no.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main
    deb-src h t t p : / / f t p . n o.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main
    
    deb h t t p : / / security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main
    deb-src h t t p : / / security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main
    
    # squeeze-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
    deb h t t p : / / f t p .no.debian.org/debian/ squeeze-updates main
    deb-src h t t p : / / f t p . no.debian.org/debian/ squeeze-updates main
    
    # Debian Squeeze/6.0
    deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian squeeze main contrib non-free
    After Debhttp://ftp. in bold text . change to your server (I am not sure if it is no or if you edited it) from us to your server (if no is your server, then use it).

    Then run the aptitude commands in my previous post.

    Code:
    aptitude update
    Code:
    aptitude install non-free package sun-java6-plugin

    Other Packages Related to sun-java6-plugin
    or chromium-browser
    Chromium browser
    Again from Debian -- Details of package sun-java6-plugin in squeeze

    Good Luck. Happy Trails, Rok

    Yes. Perhaps you should try installing icedtea6-plugin (squeeze) or icedtea-plugin (wheezy).

    If my experience is of any help: I had sun-java6-jre, sun-java6-plugin, sun-java6-fonts, sun-java6-bin and in fact almost all sun-java6 packages.
    epiphany-browser and chromium-browser played java but iceweasel (even that from backports) refused to incorporate java. From a suggestion from debian forum I extracted jre-7u17-linux-i586.tar.gz from oracle and now everything is fine.

    Debian Wheezy doesn't have sun-java-plugin package anymore, only available in Squeeze and also the icedtea plugin doesn't work in the recent Chrome version due to its source code of disallowing PPAPI. Could someone to me what's the purpose of an Java Runtime Environment? I'm sure it's used for executing Java apps, but is it necessary to have the JRE installed while you only need the plugin?

    Icedtea plugin will appear in Mozilla Firefox or Iceweasel in Debian, is there a way to allow Java in Chrome?
