Did you link it correctly? Something like:
# ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_1/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

Kinda foolish to ask, but, I'm using Mozilla Firebird(tarball). So, do I link into /home/*/MozillaFirebird/plugins? Or, to any other location in the direcotry?

Download the Java run-time environment (choose Linux RPM in self-extracting file under the JRE column).

Install the java run-time environment on the system:

sh j2re*rpm.bin
...
rpm -ivh j2re*rpm
Make a symbol link from the .mozilla/plugins directory to the java plug-in file:

ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.1_02/plugin/i386/ns610/libjavaplugin_oji.so

You can then go to the Help-->About Plug-ins page to see that the java plugin is installed.

After I link the plugin, I'm unable to restart Firebird. It quits with some strange error message "Internal Browser error". I'm getting tired of this. Any Firebird developers over here? It works fine when I remove the links. I read something about setting some java variables and stuff. Any more ideas on what makes applets work?

If you are using the 'XFT and GTK2' build of Firebird then make sure you link to the java plugin in the ns610-gcc32 dir. Also, if you are using it from the tarball then you can put the link in either the ../MozillaFirebird/plugins dir or the HOME/./mozilla/plugins dir. Either should work. Here is the command I used:

ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_01/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so /home/usrname/apps/MozillaFirebird/plugins

If you are using the XFT one and not linking to the gcc-32 plugin, then its gonna crash.

Did it finally, but it didn't work with your idea r00tnuke. Her'e's what I did
in a file /etc/profile.d/java.sh,
Code:
export JDK_PATH = somepath/j2sdk/
export PATH = $PATH:$JDK_PATH/bin
$ source /etc/profile.d/java.sh

then,
$ln -s path/j2sdk/jre/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so MozillaFirebird/plugins/

restart browser, bingo, it works

Post gcc32 makes the difference

I dunno if this will help anyone - the last post seems to be a while back - but I am running Mandrake 9.2 and MozillaFirebird 0.7. I followed various tutorials and installed various copies of the VM in different ways to no avail. Although most of them are quite similar, each seems to differ in some respect, falsely making it worth trying.

It was finally stYgian's post which helped, and I created the symbolic link to the program's own plugin directory. Thanks stYgian, I do not like mysteries unsolved more than a few days and this was beginning to cause scratch marks on my head. ;-)

Konqueror was much easier, simply point to the path of the java executable.

In retrospect, my appreciation to this site - I have found that I do not often leave disappointed if I have searched hard enough. Another example was the post about switching the sound module to cmpci rather than smb-cmpci for my CMI8738. Thanks, people - that's what keeps the open source movement so refreshingly fast. Its wonderful when the answers are there before you get to ask the questions.
