What java version do you have?

When I installed Moziila 1.4 I need to install JAVA 1.4.2 to be able to use java.

What is the command that you are using?

Where are java and mozilla located?

im using java 1.4.2 as well, mozilla is in /usr/local/mozilla and i make the symbolic link from the plugin to the plugin directory within the mozilla directory. do you not have to edit your path when you install java?

I tried many different ways to get java to work with mozilla 1.4, with no luck at all. I tried all different versions and different install methods, nothing worked. I found a link to a member here who had a way that worked for me.

this is the link

If you are using Mozilla 1.4 I believe you need to use the java plugin from the Java SDK 1.4.2 that is compiled with gcc 3.2.
You need this file to be put in your /usr/local/mozilla/plugin/

/opt/j2sdk_nb/j2sdk1.4.2/jre/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so

I copied the file to make it work. As well check to make sure you don't have any other java plugin files in the plugin dir.

That should work! Good Luck!

If Sun's Java isn't doing the trick, you could try installing Blackdown Java. It is Sun's Java compiled with a nubmer of different versions of gcc. Just pick the version that is right for your distro (gcc --version if you're not sure). For reasons I don't really understand, many people who have had difficulty with Sun compiled Java have success with Blackdown Java.
