Ubuntu unable to read the symbolic link for Java?
I'm running Ubuntu Hardy on my laptop, and wanted to run Java. So I followed the instructions on the website - downloaded the file, installed it, created a symbolic link to the plugins folder in both the mozilla and firefox folders - I wasn't sure which was right, and saw that other people on here had been advised to put links in both, so I tried that first. But when I now look at the link in either plugins folder I find that the libjavaplugin_oji.so file has an orange circle with a cross in it in the the top corner - which the Ubuntu key tells me means that the file is unreadable.
Does this mean that I downloaded the wrong file? If so, where can I get the right file? Will the same thing happen if I try to install the flash player?
