On My FireFox, I kept getting an message to "Click Here to install Plugin".
When I click here to install Plugin it says " The following Plugin is ready to install (Java Runtime Environment). I click next and Java Runtime is not available for install ... than I Run Manual install. When I run Manual Install for Java Runtime and it take me to Java web site too Download the lastest Java but I have the lastest Java running on my machine already.
Java is already install on my Suse Machine, I have version jre_1.5.0 install on my machine.
I have a Icon for Java on my Suse Start Program Menu.
Why I'am my getting request to install Java when I already have Java in my machine. thanks
You have to create a symlink to the Java plugin in your Firefox browser's plugin directory.
Search for libjavaplugin (I think it's called libjavaplugin_oji.so, sorry, running Windows right now) on your computer.
Then locate where firefox is installed; make the link in /path-to-firefox/plugins
linux:/usr/java/jre1.5.0_01/plugin/i386/ns7 # ln -s libjavaplugin_oji.so /path-firefox/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so
ln: creating symbolic link `/path-firefox/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so' to `libjavaplugin_oji.so': No such file or directory
Ok, sorry, I think I misguided you. Try the following:
ln -s /usr/java/jre1.5.0_01/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
Again, replace /home/firefox-installer with the adequate path. The rm command will remove the previously created symlink as it's not working. The reason is that the the previous commands I gave you created a link to another location...again, sorry, I must have been thinking at something else. This set of commands should work however.
