Hi,

You cannot symlink to the "folder", you must symlink to the correct file in the JRE directory. For my FC3 system, to get the Java plugin working in firefox, I installed firefox, then changed to the plugins/ directory, and did

ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_05/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so libjavaplugin_oji.so

After restarting FireFox, I had the Java plugin working. I notice you seem to point to the ncp plugin, which is for Netscape Java support, is it not?

As far as I know, to get Java support in firefox, you must symlink to the file as show above in your Firefox install's plugins/ directory.

BTW - I still have the 1.4 version of the JRE, if you have the new 1.5 version this might be different...

Regards,

i loved to helped but i'm a newbie myself. however i watched my colleague installed that plugin yesterday but he did it really quick. from peeping, i thought i saw folder 'plugins' and not plugin for your directory.

Here's the Mozilla Firefox link with its take on how to install the Java plugin: http://www.mozilla.org/support/firefox/faq#q2.2 .

Seems like you're on the right track. Just enure your directory and file names are correct when trying to setup your symbolic link.

Might be - but unlikely. I know though that for me the 1.4 version works just fine with Firefox. Anybody else in here using FF with JRE 1.5?

I'm currently using jre1.5.0_05 with Firefox 1.07. Works like a charm.
