Firefox java plugin not working, please help.


Hi, i use mozilla firefox 0.8, i downloaded the plugin, libjavaplugin_oji.so is in /plugins but it just doesn't do anything, webpages using java applets still ask me to download the plugin. It worked flawlessly on other distributions but not on fc1

Any ideas? Thx

you downloaded the plugin, but you don't have java installed.

it is like having the plugin for windows media player without windows media player installed.

Java plugin Mozilla

I have always downloaded Java SDK from java.sun.com, but you can download also JRE only if you dont develop java code.
Then chmod +x to the j2...bin file and execute it it will self extract then move it to some location then make environment variables to the profile. i use /etc/profile.d/ dir and make there java.sh file that is executable and readable to all.
Content of java.sh:
export JAVA_HOME="/opt/j2sdk1.4.2_04"
export JAVA_PATH="$JAVA_HOME"
export PATH="$PATH:$JAVA_HOME/bin"
Then make a symbolic link to the /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins folder like this:
ln -s /opt/j2sdk1.4.2_04/jre/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so

Where first is the plugin (target) second argument is the mozilla plugins folder.
Restart mozilla and it works

I use Fedora core test release....

If you are using SuSE 9.1 and selected Java during the installation, you get two versions with three plugins. Use the following to have FireFox 0.8 take the right one::

Navigate to your Mozilla Firefox plugins directory, and issue the following command:

ln -s /usr/lib/java/jre/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so

I have SuSE 9.1, and I installed Firefox 0.8 using the YaST installer. I finally got Java working, so I thought I'd post how I did it:

The file I wanted to link was /usr/lib/java/jre/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so

The directory SuSE uses for plugins is in /opt/MozillaFirefox/lib/plugins/java2/plugin/i386.

There was no directory for ns610-gcc32, so I created one. I then used ln-s to create a symlink to the .so file. Java now works for me.

Can you clarify further

I realize that the last post here was in May, but perhaps someone will look here. I'm having the same trouble getting Java to work. Can you or someone clarify what/where you're creating the ns610-gcc32 directory? I'm using SuSE 8.2, not 9.1, but I'm guessing our problems are similar. Thanks.

I'm using Mandrake 9.1 and 10 (two machines). Java works on neither of them. I do have the ns610... file. Where did you put it to make this work?

Thanks,

Hey...just wanted to add something here if someone can figure this out...i have suse 9.1...i installed the plugins into /usr/lib/browser-plugins ...with konqueror, java works, but with firefox, it does not. the reason why i have libjavaplugin_oji.so in there is because that is where the flashplayer plugins were installed....flash works in firefox and it is an option to enable/disable in the firefox preferences, but java is not...this is so frustrating, cause i feel i'm almost there....


EUREKA...just to let you know it finally worked...apparently /usr/lib/browser-plugins is for konqueror....there was another folder /home/invasian/.mozilla/plugins (invasian is my username) where the mozilla plugins should go to...i knew this, but couldn't find it before...anyways, make sure you link to libjavaplugin_oji.so, otherwise firefox crashes. good luck
