Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubuntu-docs
<ulink url="apt:sun-java6-plugin">Click here</ulink> to install the <application>sun-java6-plugin</application> package.
Located in internet/C/web-apps.xml:72(para)

This package does not exist since Karmic:

When I try to open a website with a Java applet on Lucid, Firefox wants to install the icedtea6-plugin package, so probably this should be mentioned.

Thank you for reporting this to Ubuntu. Actually, the package in the partner repository. Perhaps a note mentioning this should be added?

Well, my bad then.
However, it is a good idea to add a sentence about this - it is not completely obvious that this repository should NOT be disabled for a decent experience, as I just presented this :).

Hi, in according to this (changelog ubuntu-restricted-extras):

ubuntu-restricted-extras (39) lucid; urgency=low

  * Remove sun-java6-jre and -plugin from packages, it has been removed
    from the archive

Is necessary to modify this page:

So, remove sun-java6-plugin

The rest remain the same.

Replaced with icedtea6-plugin in the natty branch, rev 620. I'll nominate this bug for Lucid as well.

As a note, I checked, and this is also updated in the gnome-user-docs/natty branch.

Accepted ubuntu-docs into natty-proposed, the package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!
