SOLVED - Java Plugin not working - Iceweasel 184.108.40.206, Java RE 1.6.0.01
Problem is solved. I added contrib and non-free to my sources.list, apt-get update, then installed Java 5 from aptitude. Not the shiniest, but it'll work for my needs. I'm not at my laptop right onw so I can't post the exact package names. I think they begin with sun-java5 though.
I have installed the Sun Java Runtime 1.6 on this computer, and followed the instructions (using the Mozilla 1.4 enabling instructions) at http://www.java.com/en/download/help...selfextracting carefully. Everything proceeds as normal except when it comes time to restart the browser and test it. I get a message that Java isn't installed correctly.
I've checked that I'm using the correct directory for my browser -- /usr/lib/iceweasel -- and ensured that I ran the install as root. I'm just stumped on what to do now.
