Quick Java plug-in question


Hi,

Im using Mozil Firebird
and tyring to do something that requries a java-plug in

i get this:
Download the Java Run Time Environment (JRE) v1.3 Plug-in with Java 2 support, for your platform, either Windows or Linux. After the installation completes, restart the browser, then return to your original page.

If i download as me, it says dont have permission
Tried as root, and it says install successful but ti doesnt work for eithe rme or root

What am i doign wrong?

After you install JRE you will have to locate the java plug-in. Mine was in something like /usr/java/j2re/bin/plugins/ns610/javaplugin.so

Something like that. Once you locate it you have to make a symlink to it as root. So something like:

ln -sf /usr/java/j2re/bin/plugins/ns610/javaplugin.so /usr/local/MozillaFirebird/plugins

Sorry I don't know what that error is. Maybe try reinstalling Firebird.
