Getting Java To Work In Konqueror


Hi, I'm using KDE 3.1 with Konqueror on Mandrake 9.1, and I've been trying to get Java working in it for the past day, to no avail. I installed the latest rpm from the official Java website. It works fine on the command-line, and on MozillaFirebird, but I can't get it to work in Konqueror. Suggestions?

Tools... settings.. configure konqueror..

Enable Java?

Plugin paths?

Did you actually set up all these things or just install and expect it to work magically...

I'm not stupid, you know. Of course I did it. I read the HOWTO at the main Konqueror site. I've already got it working in MozillaFirebird, but I'd prefer having it working in Konqueror too.

Konqueror likes that blackdown java version better than sun's. You may want to try that one.

Both sun and blabckdown java can be used. I don't find any difference. I am running sun jdk1.4.2_02. It's working fine.I was using Blackdown java before and works fine. If you are using distro with recent kernel, you can use sun java and balckdown java either "j2re-1.4.1-01-linux-i586-gcc3.2.bin" or "j2sdk-1.4.1-01-linux-i586-gcc3.2.bin".

After installing java, open the konqueror and click on setting. Give path to java and "enable java globaly". For the plugin, check if the path of plugin exists or not, if not add the new path. It is safer to select the "scan new plugin at KDE start up".
Now click on the "scan for new plugin". click on the "plugins" button beside the "scan" button. You will find the plugins available for konqueror.
Hope this will be useful to you.
