Adding Java To Mozilla


I was looking at the posts about this tpic but the strange is after downloading it and extracting the rpm i double clicked on the rpm to install it but i noticed when i did a search for java the only entry that came up was /usr/local/share and in there was a .jar file.

Is this all what you are suppose to fnd when running a whereis java command after installing the j2re1.4.1 file.

Is it possible to get a detailed instruction on installing this plugin and what is the easiest of doing it? Maybe the pros and cons of installing it in any directory as proposed to installing to your /usr/local directory.

Seeing how i the RPM was never installed i am going to take the time to start over once again but this time ask for a little assitance.


Thank you in advance

Jus a thought...

I am assuming that command is the same as the:

# which java

which would produce this output, for example:

# /usr/lib/java/jre/bin/java

It could also be that your java installation is not being recognized by your system because it is not in your environment. Is the java installation path in your environment.

You can check this by using this command:

# env

In addition to the comment made above...

Remember that the ORDER in which the path is organized is also a factor...first java to be found will be the first java to be used, unless specified.
