DjVu plugin for Firefox


where can I get DjVu plugin for Firefox

I installed these with success:
djvulibre-3.5.24-5.fc16.i686.rpm
djview4
I found this:
djvulibre-mozplugin-3.5.22-1.el6.i686.rpm
but it doesnt install, I think it is the sort of thing I need. I can use the .i686 part but need fc16 (I dont know what el6 is)

can you help please

I know djview4 has a plugin installed to '/usr/local/lib/netscape/plugins/nsdejavu.so' or '/usr/lib/...'

thanks

I dont have either of those so i'm pretty sure I do not have the plugin installed. The problem i'm having is finding the plugin online to download that will installs successfully.

Maybe the package they made for djview doesn't contain the plugin. I know if you compile it from source it does contain the plugin. Maybe they have a package with just the plugin, separate from the djview program ?

I will try that. I will compile djview from source. Maybe then I will have the plugin. I will let you know what happens. Thanks

i am back - i tried that

installing djview4 from source is not as easy as I thought. I found the source at sourcrforge.net but discovered that many of its dependencies also must be source. For example djvulibre-3.5.25 which when I typed ./configure it went OK! but when I typed "make" I got the following:

[root@localhost djvulibre-3.5.25]# make
for d in libdjvu tools xmltools desktopfiles ; \
do ( cd $d && make all ) || exit ; done
make[1]: Ag dul isteach sa chomhadlann `/home/spoa/Íosluchtú/djvulibre-3.5.25/libdjvu'
make[1]: Tréigeadh an spleáchas ciorclach Makefile.dep <- Makefile.dep.
/bin/sh ../libtool --mode=compile g++ -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I.. -I. -DNDEBUG -c DjVuGlobal.cpp
libtool: compile: unable to infer tagged configuration
libtool: compile: specify a tag with `--tag'
make[1]: *** [DjVuGlobal.lo] Earráid 1
make[1]: Ag dul amach as an gcomhadlann `/home/spoa/Íosluchtú/djvulibre-3.5.25/libdjvu'
make: *** [all] Earráid 2

So I'm stuck again

what operating system is this
mixxing
djvulibre-3.5.24-5.fc16.i686.rpm
and
djvulibre-mozplugin-3.5.22-1.el6.i686.rpm ( the "el6 is for rhel6 )
a fedora 16 program and a CentOS6/RHEL6 program is not recommended

if this is fedora 16
it is past it's end of life
it went EOL on Feb. 12 of this year

time to install fedora 18

the old fedora 16 "djvu" rpm's should still be in the old 16 repos

what is the output of
Code:
su -
yum search djvu
from the sf page
http://djvu.sourceforge.net/djview4.html

there is a koji repo build for fedora 16
http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/b...buildID=276320
