Thanks for the info. I did install the lime build by hexxeh and verified
that java works. However, the jnlp apps used on http://phet.colorado.edu/ don't
work even though the java test page loads and says java is working.
According to Phet, they use java web start. Not sure how it's different but
frustratingly chromium just downloads the jnlp files but can't open/run
I've been googling all night. Any insights would be most welcome.
