Ubuntu: Mastering Chemistry and Ubuntu 14.04



Question:

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.

Solution:1

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.
