j2re & flash


I am having some problems getting j2re & flash to work.

firstly flash.

i downloaded the linux flash tarball from the site, and followed through the instructions. it said to specify the path to my browser, i thought firefox was /usr/lib/mozilla, but there where 3:

/mozilla
/mozilla-1.7.12
/mozilla-1.7.13

so i did it for all of them, though the /mozilla didnt work.

then i opened up my firefox again, and tested on miniclip, and still needed the plugin.

I don't actually know what i did wrong here, can you tell me?

secondly j2re:

i downloaded off the site the tarball and followed the instructions, until it told me:

1.) Go to the plugins sub-directory under the Mozilla installation directory
cd <Mozilla installation directory>/plugins

2.) In the current directory, create a symbolic link to the JRE ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so file Type:
ln -s <JRE installation directory>/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so

the responce being:

'bash: In: command not found'

any help on either of these problems would be very,very,very appreciated.

The only thing I can see wrong is that you are using "I" (as in Italy), ratter than "L" as in (light) when creating a symlink. Make sure to use "L" instead:

ln -s xxx zzz

Awesome. Congratulations ^_^. Weird about the Java thing though. The JRE and the JSDK have a lot in common. I mean, the SDK includes also a J2RE which is identical to the J2RE that you can download separated. The SDK has tools for the developers (like javac and jar).

Anyway, this is a good opportunity for you to develop applications using the coolest language around, Java ^_^
