Is there an issue with Mozilla1.5 and Java?


OK..I've been searchin and asking for reason my Java hasn't been working with Mozilla. I've followed the directions by making a libjavaplugin_oij.so symlink to the Mozilla Plugins as well as re-installing Mozilla and re-installing Java and Making sure that Java is turned on in my browser settings.

I've even went into ~/.mozilla and viewed the plug-ins folder and noticed there was nothing in that folder except Flashplayer, so I even copied the Java symlink to that hidden mozilla folder and it STILL doesn't work......

Is Java not compatible with Mozilla 1.5? I've noticed all the people who have gotten the fixes have Firebird......

I don;t have a problem - I would stronly reccomend using 1.6 now though - it seems a bit faster.

Do you get java showing up in:
about:plugins

J2re_1.4.2_03 is the file I DL'd. Most recent one on the Java site. For some reason, I can NOT get Java to work. When I installed Java, I didn't do any of that Symlink stuff and it automatically worked on Konqueror......I DID the symlink for Mozilla and it doesn't work.....

It sucks having to switch to Konqueror just to see a Java applet, or HAVING to switch in order to Navigate...pretty large annoyance....

You probably have gcc 3.2 so try using the plugin from:
ftp://ftp.cica.es/pub/java-linux/JDK...586-gcc3.2.bin

The problem is that since Mozilla 1.4 it is compiled with gcc 3.2 so it is not compatible with the "average" version of the plugin, so you have to symlink the $JAVA/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so and not the ns610 common version...

hope that helps... I'm using Mozilla 1.5 and got no issues with it

Yeah, Suse 9.0 came with Mozilla 1.4. So where can I get that gcc plug-in from? That link you gave, gave me a bunch of babble..nothing else...and it took forever to load completely. Any alternative places?

As far as symlinking the ns610, there is only one libjavaplugin_oji.so under ns610-gcc32. That is the symlink everybody told me to use....there's the ns4, ns610, and ns610-gcc32. I symlinked the last one, ns610-gcc32, and it's still not working.

**edit**
Here is the Gcc version I have by doing a about:buildconfig on the location bar:

Build platform

target

i686-pc-linux-gnu


Build tools

Compiler Version Compiler flags
gcc gcc version 3.2.3 -Wall -W -Wno-unused -Wpointer-arith -Wcast-align -Wno-long-long -pedantic -g -pthread -pipe

c++ gcc version 3.2.3 -fno-rtti -fno-exceptions -Wall -Wconversion -Wpointer-arith -Wcast-align -Woverloaded-virtual -Wsynth -Wno-ctor-dtor-privacy -Wno-long-long -pedantic -g -fshort-wchar -pthread -pipe -I/usr/X11R6/include

Now what?

Try this:

go to the original file (with bin on the end). instead of ./filename do an sh filename
