Java plugins


Wow, having lots of trouble with java plugin in MDK 10.0 and Mozilla 1.6

1. download OK from Sun MS used linux .rpm self extracting
2. install OK.....says package installed (I see all the directories and files are where the intallation help says they should be)
3. configure OK.....enabled java in Mozilla 1.6
4. test no go

I'm almost positive I did this on another PC a while back,but I eneabled in Konqueror, which was very hard. Cannot recreate that "enable" in Konq now tho. Went to >config Konq>plugins, but no go. Also went to java and javascript. (says they're enabled, but test shows no go)

Any ideas?
Thanks

do you have the link to the plugin in your browser's plugins directory?? as an example, this is what mine looks like (on firefox):
Code:
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 54 2005-08-25 07:37 /usr/lib/firefox-1.0.6/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so -> /usr/lib/java/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so

java plugin

Yes, part of the configuration is to link the libjavaplugin_osj.os to the mozilla plugins folder. In terminal this file is black with flashing red background. ( I guess this means a link is there).

Thanks

make sure the link is right...

doing an "ls -l" on the link should give you something similar to what i posted above...

java "fixed" but.....

OK............
In /usr/lib I have these directories
mozilla
mozilla-1.6
each with a plugins folder. I have another MDK 10.0 PC also with 2 mozilla folders. What's up with that?

I had linked to the mozilla 1.6 folder cause that's what the STUPID INSTRUCTIONS FROM SUN MS SAY TO DO.
As soon as I linked to the plain mozilla folder........voila!

Java is now working, but am trying to build a webpage on Yahoo. page builder says java now enabled, but applet loads partway, then I am signed off. Is this evil trick by MS - Yahoo to only allow netscape or IE?

Thanks

Just FYI that actually means the link is broken - the file it points to can't be found
