Java on Opera 28 (Ubuntu 14.04)

  • I am trying Opera 28 on Ubuntu 14.04 (the usual browser I use is Firefox) but I can't run java applets; I look for the way to activate but I couldn't find a solution at all. How can I activate it?

  • I have the same issue.
    For what I've read until now, JAVA uses some NPAPI plugin tech, and opera doesn't support that kind of plugins.

    In fact, google chrome has disabled the support for NPAPI also.

    I haven't found a solution in order to run Java on Opera (which I use as my mainly browser)!

  • I have used Opera with Ubuntu as my main browser and OS a while now, and I've still not managed to get java working. But at the same time I don't really care so much because java is more and more replaced by HTML5 and other techniques, and no website that I visit regularly use Java.

  • The Linux Chromium-based browsers have not supported NPAPI plugins for far longer than their Mac and Windows cousins. Support for NPAPI will never be added. So unless Oracle finds some way to provide a PPAPI plugin you will not get Java working.

  • Thanks to all you for your answers !
