Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

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.
