Java not working with iceweasel
I've Squeeze with Gnome and I'm using iceweasel browser.
I've installed sun-java6-jre and sun-java6-plugin, but java in iceweasel doesn't work.
BTW Java is enabled in the browser settings.
I've solved this problem, the link to java plugin, installed automatically seems to be not OK:
Didn't work for me
I'm using the same version of java.
Followed this, but it still doesn't work for me :(
My little brother wants to play java games. Do you have any alternate ideas for what might fix it?
Run the following commands as root:
update-alternatives --config java
update-alternatives --config javac
symlink the Java plugin as root
Followed by :
ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so
You could also try using OpenJDK or follow the Howto in my LQ blog and install Oracle's Java.
my steps based on your method, which works for wheezy amd64
1. download jre from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/ja...ads/index.html
2. extract to /opt
# tar -xvf jre-7u5-linux-x64.tar.gz -C /opt/
3. symlink to mozilla plugins folder
# cd /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
# ln -s /opt/jre1.7.0_05/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so
4. restart Iceweasel
