THANK YOU! That site had way better instructions than what I was trying to follow before.
Now I'm onto Setting it up...
" 2. For the Mozilla browser create a symbolic link to the Plug-in in the Mozilla plugins directory.
Create a symbolic link to the Java Plug-in libjavaplugin.so file in the Mozilla plugins directory.
ln -s <JRE>/plugin/i386/<ns7 | ns7-gcc29>/libjavaplugin_oji.so .
In the ln command line above, use ns7-gcc29 if Mozilla was compiled with gcc2.9.
Be sure to include the period at the end."
I'm assuming I first cd /usr/lib/firefox-1.0.4/plugins
but the next line baffles me:
"ln -s <JRE>/plugin/i386/<ns7 | ns7-gcc29>/libjavaplugin_oji.so ."
by Jre do they mean the file I origionally downloaded? what is <ns7 | ns7-gcc29> ??
I have no idea what firefox was complied with.
