Give the install.sh file execution permission and run it in terminal (with root privilege).
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:neurobin/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install oraji

If a fall back java is available, exports and environment variables will be available for this java version and mozilla plugin will be restored.
