The java plugin question


open a command line a cnage into your mozilla plugin directory

e.g

cd /usr/lib/mozilla-1.6/plugins (or whatever/wherever it is)

do

ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_03/jre/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin.so (this path may be different as I use the sdk)

Point is - you want to cd into your mozilla plugins directory and make a link, ln -s, to the file libjavaplugin.so wherever it may be on your system


PS. It is an applet in your browser you're trying to run, yeah?

If you open mozill and under the help menu -> about plugins and there is no mention of java at all then the plugin isn't installed properly or it's the libjavaplugin_oji.so (I said libjavaplugin.so wrongly before) in the other directory called ns610 you have to make a link to.

For the vm, you'll have to add your path to java to your .bashrc file. Hit the search button below my post. The answers to both questions are there.
