I have been wrestling with this problem off and on for a year now, and still feel no closer to the solution. I am running Red Hat 9. I am using Java version j2sdk1.4.2_01 and have version "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225" of Mozilla.
A lot of searches have told me to create a symbolic link in the plugins directory of mozilla.
I have done that this way.
cd to /home/licher/.mozilla/plugins
ln -s /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_01/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so
This creates a symbolic link in the plugins folder and it shows up when I do an ls -l
[licher@localhost plugins]$ ls -l
-rwxr-xr-x 1 licher licher 856 Sep 7 17:45 flashplayer.xpt
-rwxr-xr-x 1 licher licher 2096844 Sep 7 17:45 libflashplayer.so
lrwxrwxrwx 1 licher licher 68 Sep 7 18:17 libjavaplugin_oji.so ->
However, nothing happens when I try to load an applet from my hard drive or from the web. I just keep getting the error saying "This page contains information of a type (application/x-java-vm) that can only be viewed with the appropriate plugin."
I have also tried going into Edit -> Preferences -> Helper Applications and creating a new file type with MIME type application/x-java-vm extension .class and handled by libjavaplugin_oji.so
Does anyone know what I am doing wrong or not doing?
I don't have a mozilla-1. 7 directory in my /usr/lib, however I did find a /usr/lib/mozilla-1.2.1 directory, so i tried making a symbolic link there, however, Mozilla still does not recognize java applets.
