I was searching the fourms and found several threads pertaining to how to install Java from Sun Microsystems and i followed them to the letter and i am unable to get Mozzilla to "see" that it is installed.
Below is a step by step of what i did could somebody tell me if i missed somthing in the install process ?, it would really be appreciated.
1.downloaded binary from Sun
2.Extracted RPM from the Binary from Sun
3.Installed RPM from Sun
4.went in to a ROOT Terminal and made a Symbolic Link inside the Mozzilla plugin Directory for the Java Runtime Library.
5.edited this File: ".bashrc" and to this file i added the following lines:
6.Logged out and then Logged back in
7.open Mozzilla and told it were to find the Java Runtime (file:/usr/java/jre1.5.0_01/bin)
8.Checked with Mozzilla and there was only the Flash plugin,Null plugin,Future splash player were the only ones that showed, No Java
My System specs are listed here:
Distro: Mandrake 10.0 Community
Browser: Mozzilla 1.6
GCC tools and Utils: 3.2 seris
Ram 512 DDR 400
CPU: Intel P4 2.4 GHZ
