Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Install Java J2RE and Mozilla Plug-in
It's also very handy to have the Java run-time environment available and most importantly a Mozilla plug-in so you can view dynamic content. It's unfortunate that Mozilla will actually crash if you go to a site containing Java and you don't have the plug-in installed.
The best site for the plug-in is the Dag Wieers repository. I would normally recommend just putting it in your up2date sources but I've had problems with conflicting packages. In this case I recommend you just go to the site and download and install just the packages you need. Just go to http://dag.wieers.com/packages/j2re/ and download the latest j2re and mozilla-j2re packages as appropriate for your system. Then just install them as follows:
Just a notice: I have a folder /usr/lib/mozilla-1.6/ which I think is the correct one where to put all this.... Noticed this when I wanted to install the flashplayer... typing /usr/lib/mozilla as isntallation directory gave me an error, until I noticed, that this other directory exists...
Perhaps you should try Konqueror as browser for the game.... (configuring it, like I described before)
If that doesn't help, I'm afraid I won't be any help at all.... that's all I can say for sure with my little experience
Distribution: GUI Ubuntu 12.04 - Server 12.04.4 LTS
My Mozilla doesn't seem to have a scan thing for plugins but under the Help-About Plug-ins on Mozilla browser they say they are installed.
My Mozilla version is, Mozilla 1.6 Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040510
Also we use Konqueror browser, and i just did a scan to find the plugin folder
I think its here /usr/lib/jre/plugin/i386/
This is the error we get
The following error has occurred:
Java Not Found or Not Working
You must have Java installed on your computer in order to run Pogo
games, and it must be functioning properly. This error means you either
don't have Java installed yet, or your Java is not working correctly.
How to fix the problem:
Java is a free download that is required to play Pogo games. Not all
computers come with Java pre-installed. If you haven't played Pogo games
before and are getting this error, you probably just need to install
Java on your computer. Click Here for instructions on installing Java
for your operating system and browser.
If you already have Java installed and are getting this error, your
Java may be out-of-date or is no longer working. In that case, your Java
needs to be upgraded or reinstalled. If you need help, click here
does the folder /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_04/bin/ exist?
In Konqueror, under plugins in the config menu, look for Java plugin. There must be somewhere a field where you can enter a path to the Java executable. Put the folder mentioned above in that field, or (better) browse for it using the folder icon on the right.
restart Konqueror after accepting these changes, and give it a try again.
