I have a question about running Java in Mozilla. Ok, not I think I did all of the correct linking and stuff after I installed the JRE and SDK 1.4.1 into the /usr/local/ directiry. When I go to mozilla plugins, it does list all of the java files. Now here comes my problem. When I try to go onto a java-enabled web-site, eg. yahoo games, MOZILLA just entirely exits!! I've followed a lot of online tutorials, but they all lead to the same outcome. Please help me!
i experienced the same problem but discovered that i needed to link the plugin to the mozilla plugins directory (i had copied the file to the moz' folder)
on my system the required plugin is libjavaplugin_oji.so
this is found in /usr/java/j2re1.4.1_01/i386/plugin/ns610/
to link them is
ln -s source target
with this process i found that a spelling mistake or syntax error does NOT throw up an error message
also, that i had to go into the /usr/lib/mozilla-1.1/plugins folder and manually delete the incorrect links
OK, all you guys were right, it IS supposed to be in the /usr/java address, without the local there, now it works! I read that you need to put it in the local folder for it to work for all users. Myabe I misinterpreted it wrong. Thanks so much for all of your help. Mahalo!
