Fedora 17 + firefox + java plugin


I have followed the instructions and done the following :

[root@jonashp Jonas]# cd /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
[root@jonashp plugins]# ln -s /usr/java/jdk1.7.0_07/jre/lib/amd64/

So I have the plugin linked :

[root@jonashp plugins]# ls -lh
total 0
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 47 Jul 15 11:10 -> /usr/java/jdk1.7.0_07/jre/lib/amd64/

But still I get the error in Firefox that there is a plugin missing ?!

Try typing the line

into firefox and see what you get. Last heard, it used to be blackdown java that fedora used. Also be aware that If you have a 64 bit browser, it's /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins. Both browser & plugin have to be the same bitty-ness (32 or 64) for things to work.

OK, I had to install it in /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins

Now it works.
