debian/lenny + amd64 + java + browser


How to install java plugin into Iceweasel on 64bit Debian/Lenny?

I have installed both ia32-sun-java6* and sun-java6* packages with apt-get. Then I have created a symlink in the /urs/lib/mozilla/plugins for libjavaplugin_oji.so file of the ia32* package.

But java does not work within browser.

Do I need to find and install 32bit Mozilla too?

Thanks.

Have you added a contrib non-free source to your apt source list? If not, use your favorite editor and add one, after it's added update your repository list, apt-get update < must be root

Here is my non-free entry

Code:
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ lenny main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ lenny main contrib non-free
Now open your synaptic package manager and do a search for sun-java5-jre or version 6 sun-java6-jre and install it.

Edit: My source is for 32bit.

http://packages.debian.net/lenny/sun-java6-plugin

aptitude install sun-java6-plugin

should install and configure the java plugin for iceweasel (epiphany, galeon) automatically, provided you have non-free in your repository list as mrrangerman suggested. I would think you need the 64 bit plugin for the 64bit verision of Debian though, which the above command should take care of automatically...

I did this from the beginning, but it does not work.
