Java Runtime Enviorment not working with Suse 10.0 in browsers


I was wanting to play Runescape (runescape.com incase it would help to know what I'm talking about) but when I got to the game firefox said that their was a missing plugin, when I went to "download missing plugin" it couldn't install it automatically and suggested that I do so manually. When I installed it manually it seemed to install correctly and now shows up in Yast, but I still get the same message when I go to the runescape website.

I've only been using Linux for about 2 months now and had been using Suse 9.3 pro and the game worked fine then. Now upgrading to 10.0 it doesn't work! I would really rather not go back to 9.3 their are several things about 10.0 that I like a lot more, anyways I could use a little help.

Ok, even though I hadn't found any answers earlier by doing a search, from creating this post I've actually found what seems to be some promising advice. Now all I need help with is finding the Mozilla plugins folder... I know... really a stupid problem, but apparently if I create a symlink to the "libjavaplugin.so" file (which I miraculously found) in the mozilla plugins folder it should work! This would also solve my problem with certain flash items not working I can do the same for the latest flash player available.

I've been searching forever for this stupid folder and really can't find it so if someone else using Suse 10.0 knows where I can, please help!

Should be /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
So you would do this:
Code:
ln -s /path/to/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so
You can check if it is installed by putting aboutlugins in the firefox address bar.

Woops don't know how to disable smileys. Let me try again. You put this in the firefox address bar to see which plugins are installed:
Code:
about:plugins

hey thanks! your answer got me close, but it's still not working. When I typed in exactly what you said it said no such directory found. I started exploring my /usr/lib/ folder and found that their appeared to be no mozilla folder, but I found instead a "browser-plugins" folder and tried that, didn't work either. (I did get the file link into the browser-plugins folder it just isn't working in my browser)

when I go to aboutlugins it shows like 5 different things, none of which are in the "browser-plugins" folder. oh well, for now I'm just going to mess with it later, it is possible that I am just overlooking something very simple.

Atleast I know now to look under /usr/lib/ and not /usr/local/ as most of the other posts about this said to.

Try this:
Code:
whereis mozilla
whereis firefox
Locate is also usefull
Code:
updatedb
locate mozilla
locate firefox
Or slocate is even better.
