Trouble with Java Plugin


hi, I have troubles with Java plugin, This page Contains information of type (application/x-java-vm) that can only viewed with the appropiate Pug-in. Click OK to download Plugin shows up, and when I click OK then java.sun.com appears me, then I downloaded the j2re-1_4_2_01-linux-i586.bin file and then unpack the j2re-1_4_2_01-linux-i586.bin, this file created a folder.

Now what I need to do to install the plugin?

Thanks

You will find a directory called jre/plugin/i386 which contains a number of directories which are tied to the version of your browser. Copy the corresponding libjavaplugin_oji.so to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins or whatever browser you use.

I have Mozilla Firebird installed to /usr/local/mozilla.org/MozillaFirebird so I dump the .so file from the ns610-gcc32 directory to /usr/local/mozilla.org/MozillaFirebird/plugins.

Thanks now I copied the libjavaplugin_oji.so from /home/user/Downloads/j2re1.4.2_01/plugin/i386/ns610 to /usr/lib/netscape/plugins and when I open some web page with java applet the Netscape crash and exit,

What could be the problem?

Try the ns610-gcc32 one instead.

i had the exact same problem,but with mozilla, dont copy the plugin, link to it,

for me i had to do

ln -s /usr/local/development/java_1.4.2_01/jre/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/local/mozilla/plugins

then i dont know if its the same for Nutscrape but with mozilla you have to run the browser as root, and then load a page with an applett in it, let it load, clsoe and switch back to your user, and it worked.

as i say, this was on mozilla i dont think there is much difference tho

That sounds awfully wrong. Is the .so (plugin file you linked to) executable by everyone? Do a chmod a+x on it and see if the problem goes away.

Browsing as root? Brrrr...sends a cold chill down my spine.
