Java plugin for Mozilla is probably there but not working


I have only been using FC2 for about 4 weeks. I came from Mandrake 9.2.

The java application that lets java applets run in the Browser is not installed on MD9.2 so I would download and install it and the plugin for the browser would work.

FC2 the java plugin for the browser does not work so I assume I need to download and install.

I download and attempt to install and get a message that the application is already installed.

What do I have to do to get the plugin to work in the browser in FC2?

the normal point of failure is that you have not created a link from the library to the plugins directory for your browser. you will need to run a command such as...

ln -s /opt/blackdown-jdk-1.4.1/jre/plugin/i386/mozilla/javaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

your paths will invairably differ, but you can use "locate" to find where the orignal java object file is.
