Did you read the Java installation instructions at Sun's homepage?

http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/install.html

The Installation of Self-Extracting Binary is the part you want to look at... assuming you are using a 32bits machine. I recommend moving your j2re-1_4_2_12-linux-i586.bin to your /opt first (mv /home/hamid/desktop/j2re-1_4_2_12-linux-i586.bin /opt)

Did you make a symlink to libjavaplugin_oji.so in your browser's plugins directory? Also, you do know there's a newer version of the JRE, right?

Version 1.5.0_07 is the latest. Do you know where your plugins directory is? If you just have one user account, then it'll be ok just to make the link in ~/.mozilla/plugins (check if you have this directory). If you have multiple user accounts, then you'll want it in a directory that every user has access to (e.g. on Slackware 10.2, this is /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins, but it may be different for your distro).

Now, I'm using JRE 1.5.0_04, but I don't think they've changed where the files are. If you have problems, we should be able to fix them .

You make the link as follows:

ln -s /path/to/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so ~/.mozilla/plugins.

Replace the first bit in bold with the actual path to your JRE, for me this is /usr/lib/jre-1.5.0_04. The second bold part may need to be changed, depending on where your plugins folder is.

You won't need to do this as root, since you're making the link in a directory under your home (unless of course, you're putting the link in a directory multiple users can access).

HTH.

now i m doing this

[hamid@localhost ~]$
[hamid@localhost ~]$ ln -s /home/hamid/%2fmv/to/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so ~/.mozilla/plugins
ln: `/home/hamid/.mozilla/plugins': File exists
[hamid@localhost ~]$ ln -s /home/hamid/%2fmv/to/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so ~/.mozilla/plugins
ln: `/home/hamid/.mozilla/plugins': File exists

If you extracted to /home/hamid/%2fmv/jre-1_5_0_07, then that first bit is wrong; it should be /home/hamid/%2fmv/jre_1_5_07/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so.

Sorry, I made a mistake in my previous post. The second part should be ~/.mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so.

You have indirectly helped me as well Nylex. Ive now successfully installed the latest Java Plugin. Its all down to the directory names being correct.

If this helps anyone else this is the command line i used to create the link.

ln -s /home/mike/Downloads/jre1.5.0_07/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so

Obviously the bit in bold is unique to where i down loaded and extracted the bin file too initially.

Mike.
