It's the same as with mozilla

Check your Phoenix install directory (wherever you have phoenix at) there is a plugin directory in that directory. ln the java plugin and you are good to go

Cool

thought that may be the case...now the only problem is finding a download location!

EDIT:
found this link: http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.1/download.html

Is this the correct ones? And am I after the JRE or SDK? And, the only copy that I'll be able to download is the Linux self-extracting file which is a .bin file...I've never actually used one of them before. When I've got the file do i just go ./nameoffile and it'll automatically extract?

Actually, you usually have chmod them first to make em executable, then do the ./ on em.



And as for jre vs sdk, well the sdk has everything the jre does PLUS. So if you ever plan on doing java development, you may want to get the sdk, but the jre is fine for normal users.

Cool

And be sure you symlink the plugins (i think it's javaplugin_oji) to the plugin directory of the browser.. that was my slip up. I just did it by hand, because the automated setup wasn't being too smart.

Hello!
Where is the symlink supposed to point to? I can't seem to find where the java stuff has installed itself...

Usually try:
whereis java
Or just look in:
/usr/local/java or somewhere around there, then the plugin is in the java directory.

Cool

Hello!
I have created the link as suggested, yet after reboot the browser is still claming that I am missing the plugin. Is it possible I linked to the wrong file, ie. the .so file in /usr/java/j2re1.4.1_02/plugin/i386/ns610, rather than /usr/java/j2re1.4.1_02/plugin/i386/ns600 or /usr/java/j2re1.4.1_02/plugin/i386/ns4

regards,
doug

Its possible that you put the symlink in the wrong 'plugins' directory. You should be simlinking to something like:

/usr/local/mozilla/plugins

Find out where your browser is by doing:

whereis mozilla

if mozilla is your browser.

The plugin you want is called javaplugin_oji.so. Inside your .mozilla directory, assuming your using mozilla, you should make the link point to /usr/local/j2sdk1.4.1/jre/plugin/i386/mozilla/javaplugin_oji.so

If you're using Konqueor, the process is the same. You may have to enter the Konqueror settings and force it to search for new plugins. For Galeon, the process is the same.

Hello!

I use phoenix, and I guess I just don't know where phoenix stops and mozilla takes over. Should the link be in the phoenix plugin folder or the mozilla plugin folder?

Lib juggling

Disclaimer: I'm running Debian Testing, this might not apply to your distro.

Personally, the krux for me was that java depended on a lib file which I didn't have. Fortunately, it was fairly simple to trick it with a simple symlink, according to the following:

micke:~> ls -l ~/local/lib/
total 0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 micke micke 33 4 apr 16.41 libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2 -> /usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3
micke:~> LD_LIBRARY_PATH=~/local/lib local/share/phoenix/phoenix

FYI, ~/local/share/phoenix is where I keep phoenix installed until it's getting deb-packaged properly...

Other than that, using the normal download methods [go to a site with an applet, click the download-plugin popup, &c] works fine...

Hope this helps
