Ubuntu: Mastering Chemistry and Ubuntu 14.04


For my General and Analytical Chemistry course at college there is a site called Mastering Chemistry, made by Pearson, that features different questions types. When I went to solve some problems, I was told that I needed to download and install Java. I already have Java, and all of the other questions have worked. I am running XFCE on Ubuntu 14.04.

enter image description here


Open Firefox and click on "addons" and select "plugins". Scroll to the java plugin and make sure it is set to either "ask to activate" or "always" (note: it should not be set to activate when not in use for security reasons).

If the opensource java plugin is not compatable, you can install the non-free proprietary java and plugins using the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java  sudo apt-get update  sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer   

Again, you must use Firefox as these plugins are not compatable with chrome or chromium.
