JAVA on firefox: PLugin directory does not exist !!


Plz, help me !! i just cant make java run on firefox. I've read stuff over the net that tells me to do this:

go to the FireFox plugin directory, and create a symbolic link from the jre plugin into this directory:
cd ~/.firefox/plugins
ln -s /usr/java/jre1.5.0/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so

The problem is that there is no "Plugin" directory, neither any 'libjavaplugin_oji.so' file !! There are only these directories:

usr/java/jre1.5.0/bin
usr/java/jre1.5.0/lib
usr/java/jre1.5.0/man

and these files:

file:/usr/java/jre1.5.0/bin/java
file:/usr/java/jre1.5.0/bin/keytool
file:/usr/java/jre1.5.0/bin/kinit
file:/usr/java/jre1.5.0/bin/klist

Just to be sure, perhaps you could try searching:
Code:
slocate libjavaplugin_oji.so
If that doesn't find anything, perhaps no plugin has been created yet for your architecture?

actually, since you are mentioning it, I have had problems with Java 1.5 as well.
after making the symlink to the Firefox plugins directory, the browser refuses to run.
if I symlink to Java 1.4xxx it works like a charm.

is Java 1.5 not compatible with FF?
