problem with icq2go --> x-java-vm


so, as the search function has no matches for x-java-vm, here is my problem:

i tried alls the icqpendants i found (gaim, licq, centericq, ...) but nothing worked... so i tried http://go.icq.com , but it asks for a plug-in from a type called "application/x-java-vm" and i don't know what to do... i installes sun java by following these instructions
but that didn't work either

does anyone know what i have to do?

OK, I'm doing a little guessing here, but you probably need to set up your Java parameters correctly. Check out this
thread where I've explained how to set up the PATH and JAVA_HOME variables.

What you may have to do in addition to that is set up a link to Java plugin for each program that needs to use it. You'll have to read the documentation for those programs to find out what directory to put the link in , but the link itself is usually something like:

ln -s /path/to/java/jre/plugin/i386/ns610/libjavaplugin_oji.so

hm it's similar to what i did with one exception: i did not use the rpm package, but the self extracting file:

Quote:
from Tuvok
First, create (as root) a "java" subdirectory in the /usr directory. Download the self-extracting (not RPM) file of j2re-1_4_2 from Sun. Move (as root) the file to /usr/java. Cd (as root) to the /usr/java and issue the following 2 commands:
then i performed these commands in the terminal like instructed in Tuvok's post:

chmod a+x j2re-1.4.2_01-linux-i586.bin
./j2re-1.4.2_01-linux-i586.bin


i agreed to the lincence and then performed

ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_01/bin/java java

then i did something to get java work with mozilla:

ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_01/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so /*/libjavaplugin_oji.so
( yes i replaced * with my mozilla plug-in path )

but icq2go still does not accept this java.. or do i have to do something else after this?

OK, lets back up for a second here.

First, are you sure you installed java correctly? You should be able to find the java directory in your /usr directory, although it may bin in /usr/local if you installed from binary.

Second, in a console, type java -version. If you get anything that suggests the computer can't find java, then you need to set up your PATH and JAVA_HOME.

Third, if you don't feel comfortable messing with /etc/profile, you can create the same commands in your .bashrc file (you can create one if you don't have one, just be sure to have #!/bin/bash as your first line.

Lastly, what browser are you using? You need to find out where to put the plugin link for your browser.

1. yes, it is in /usr/java

2.


[root@localhost root]# java -version
java version "1.3.1"
jdkgcj 0.2.3 (http://www.arklinux.org/projects/jdkgcj)
gcj (GCC) 3.2.2 20030222 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.2-5)

[root@localhost root]#


3. I'll have a look for it when I wake up today

lastly, I'm using Mozilla 1.2.1 and i already tried the commands like tuvok says in his thread to link to my plug-in dir, but i didn't work i think.

but like a wonder, my licq works now *g*
