Slackware-14.1-Hacks-Firefox 24.X and Java

You need to compile and install the following application from SlackBuilds.org:

jdk-7u55

Note - I could not download any files from the Oracle website without having java already installed and configured for Firefox. What I did is install and configure an old version, jdk-7u21, then I downloaded and compiled the current version, which jdk-7u55. After that, I upgraded the package using the new version.

You will need to download jdk-7u55-linux-i586.tar.gz and jdk-7u55-linux-x64.tar.gz to compile the latest version. I would download both since if you need the 32-Bit Version, you will already have it in the source folder.

You need to create a link in the Mozilla Plugins folder in order for Java to work. Close Firefox before doing the following.

Slackware 14.1 (32-Bit)

# cd /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
# ln -s /usr/lib/java/jre/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so
# ls -al
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 41 Jun 2 14:09 libnpjp2.so -> /usr/lib/java/jre/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so

Slackware64 14.1 (64-Bit)

# cd /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/
# ln -s /usr/lib64/java/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so
# ls -al
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 41 Jun 2 14:09 libnpjp2.so -> /usr/lib64/java/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so

Open Firefox 24.5.0esr and type aboutlugins in the address bar.

Installed Plugins
Java(TM) Plug-in 10.55.2

Now, go to https://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp and click "Verify Java version" to test your java. You will need to allow an applet to run on your computer and also disable the "No Script" Browser Application.
