Another Java /Mozilla problem. Just fixed it last night. Here is my post in another thread
I finally got it all by myself. I went to blackdown, followed the instructions exactly to get Java 2 installed. ie. I copied j2re-1.4.1-01-linux-i586-gcc3.2.bin right into /usr/local, did a chmod +x as root, then ran it. It put it into j2re1.4.1. I then issued the following two commands as root
ln -s /usr/local/j2re1.4.1/plugin/i386/javaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
ln -s /usr/local/j2re1.4.1/plugin/i386/mozilla/javaplugin_oji.so /home/Jim/.mozilla/plugins/
You can replace the 'Jim' with whatever your home directory is called. I am not too bright, I use my name. Thanks everyone for the help. I hope this helps Chazb, who is also having trouble. I think a lot of my trouble was that I am a horrible typist. I suspect my typing more than everything. Take care.
