Firefox + Java (*Missing Plugins? wtf*)


I wanted to play chess via, gamecolony.com, so I went to thier page, it requested java plugins, so I've installed them
and it shows that it has been installed
Code:
[zuki@localhost ~]$ rpm -qa | grep jre
jre-1.5.0_05-fcs
But when I got back to that site, it still says missing plugins... any suggestions?

Type in about:plugins to the address bar of your browser and see if java is listed.

Do a "locate libjavaplugin_oji.so", there must be a symlink in your /usr/lib/mozliia/plugins folder. If not create one.

that's what written @ aboutlugins

Code:
Default Plugin

    File name: libnullplugin.so
    The default plugin handles plugin data for mimetypes and extensions that are not specified and facilitates downloading of new plugins.

MIME Type 	Description 	Suffixes 	Enabled
* 	All types 	.* 	No


Mebrelith, can you explain me please what did u mean, and how can I do that? I'm kinda noobie but I know the basic stuff I think.

Looks like you don't have Java linked. You need to download and install and link it. Go here and download it and follow the instructions.

I'm using the x86_64 edition but every forum I've looked it says to do a link with the file

ln #java_path#/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so -s libjavaplugin_oji.so

but I don't find any folder named plugin @ /usr/java
Code:
[zuki@localhost java]$ pwd
/usr/java
[zuki@localhost java]$ ls -a
.  ..  jre1.5.0_05

Help?

CD into the jre* directory and see if there is a plugin folder, move into it. You will need a folder called ns7-gcc32, then follow the instructions.

You might look at this link about installing java for FC4:

done the first 2 lines
but
Code:
[root@charon fc4]# sh jre-1_5_0_05-linux-i586.bin
[root@charon fc4]# mv jre1.5.0_05 /opt/jre1.5
[root@charon fc4]# ln -s /opt/jre1.5/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so
the 3rd is just useless since I got no /opt/jre*/plugin folder



BTW, Using x86_64 installation offcourse.


any else tip?

Okay guys


I've found out where that file is on my hard disk, how to do the ln now with the new path?

Code:
[root@localhost /]# find / -name "libjavaplugin_oji.so" -print find: WARNING: Hard link count is wrong for /proc: this may be a bug in your filesystem driver.  Automatically turning on find's -noleaf option.  Earlier results may have failed to include directories that should have been searched.
/home/zuki/.mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so

hello
I'm running FC4 x86_64. In order to run java, flash, and media players with wmp support, you need a 32 bit browser. You can uninstall firefox (rpm -e firefox), and install the 32 bit version of it. Then to install the jre plugin (your path may be different)

ln -s /usr/java/jre1.5.0_02/plugin/i386/ns7/file:///usr/java/jre1.5.0_02/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/local/firefox/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so

For the time being there's no real advantage to run a 64bit browser.
