Where is gone libjavaplugin_oji.so on linux 64 system?


I use the package taken directly from java and when yesterday i decided to upgrade from jdk 1.6.0_18 to 1.6.0_21 i don't find this file.

Happen the same thing that happen with flash?
Where isn't more present the 64 bit version?

Note:
Now i installed the same version of Java on a 32 bit linux system and i noticed that for that system that plugin is present.

What os/distro are you running? If it is debian based, and you have the relevant entries in your /etc/apt/sources.list, "apt-file" is your friend.

Generic hint: if the file is already on your system you can use "locate" or "find".

My Plugin in Iceape

Java(TM) Plug-in 1.6.0_21

File name: libnpjp2.so
The next generation Java plug-in for Mozilla browsers.
32 bit by the way. AntiX does not make a 64bit distro.

Shows the same in my Firefox 4 Beta 4 install also as the same plugin.

On what distro? You have 8 listed.

apt-get install sun-java6-plugin

Works the same on Debian and Ubuntu, on 32bit and 64bit.

I use the package taken directly from oracle sun because i prefer don't rely on package taken by the single distro so i'm more free to update when i like update indipendently by the presence of the package on the specific distro that i use.

Generally I prefer share the jdk between all the distro so i put it on a separated partition.

Then the fact that right now I'm using debian 64 squeeze don't matter.

Note:
I think i remove some distro that i used less (as sabayon and opensuse) and on future probably even OpenSolaris given that thanks to Oracle this project is dead. :-/

If you are getting it directly from Oracle then check the documentation that comes with the software.

Cheers,

I read this:
Manual Installation and Registration of Java Plugin for Linux
but speak only about the 32 bit version.

JDK Self-Extracting Installation for Linux (64-bit)
No mention about that plugin.

Supported System Configurations
Quote:
Browser Footnotes

* Browsers listed above are supported for Java™ Plug-in software and Java™ Web Start software.
See the Deployment Footnotes for more detail.
* Google Chrome 4.0 support was added in 1.6.0_21.
* Firefox 3.6 support was added in 1.6.0_18.
* Firefox 3.5.1 support was added in 1.6.0_16.
* Support for IE 8 was introduced in 1.6.0_13.
....

Deployment Footnotes

* For Java Plug-in and Java Web Start on 64-bit Solaris systems, use the 32-bit JRE.
* For Java Plug-in and Java Web Start on 64-bit Windows systems, the 64-bit JRE is supported as of 1.6.0_12.
* For Java Plug-in and Java Web Start on 64-bit Linux systems, support is not offered at this time.
Mmm. So i think is necessary use the plugin for the 32 bit version. :/

Even though I launch and keep Firefox 4 folder in /home.

Mine pass the java test and don't crash.

Do not copy the plugin to your plugins directory. If you do, Mozilla will crash any time you attempt to view a page containing a Java applet.

(while if i tried the symlink with the file that came with the jdk 64 bit release don't work
/home/[user]/java/jdk1.6.0_21/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so)
on
/home/[user]/.mozilla/plugins

While on firefox 4.x that plugin remain disable.
