    I run Linux on the desktop.   For a long while I kept one workstation for dealing with Java needed things.  That workstation is no more as "security" blocks Java due to old version and potential for holiday at the waterpark that would ensue.

    Needing to run Java (yeah I hate it and always have) in browser. 

    Anyone have a recent Linux how-to for perfecting such without losing ones mine?  Any browser is fine [they all suck in their own way].

    (mainly need to use this crapware for things like Proxmox and other remote control VNC shitola).... WHEN WILL THESE COMPANIES DO AWAY WITH JAVA ALL DAMN READY?

    If you're running Debian or Ubuntu based systems you can keep your system updated by...

    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 5CB26B26
    echo "deb http://www.duinsoft.nl/pkgdebs all" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/duinsoft.list
    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get install update-sun-jre
