     Perfect, works with latest chrome 11 stable on ubuntu 9.10. I installed jre1.6.0_25 in /usr/java and made a symbolic link to /usr/java/jre1.6.0_25/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so from the plugin folder as specified. For me it works without the –enable-plugins option. Thanks very much!

  4. Thank you so much! Worked great! Only gripe is that (at least, with Chromium) I had to replace /opt/google/chrome with /usr/lib/chromium-browser.

    Well, in the world of Linux, it’s actually not that bad. Haha.

    Do you not have Java and Java plugin packages already in Mint’s repositories?

    On Ubuntu, icedtea-plugin works automatically with Chrome and there’s probably a set of packages which do not use OpenJDK.
