Mozilla problems regarding sound and Java applets

Hello everybody
I really want your precious help.
I am quite newbie to Linux (BackTrack) and i've got some problems with Mozilla.
First of all, i cant listen a sound of a video and secondly i can not run applets because the appropriate plugins are missing.
I tried to make symbolic link to the but the file was already existing. Additionally i checked my preferences on mozilla to see if Java was enabled,which was true.
Another thing that i havent achieved is to make the compiler working globally as well
I have set the 'PATH' correctly in bashrc file but that doesnt work.

I would be really obliged if anyone could help me.
Thanks for your time.

What desktop environment/window manager are you using? I'm using fluxbox and in order for me to hear sounds in firefox I have to start firefox with the command aoss firefox. If you are using KDE or gnome you may have to use their sound systems. For instance I think in KDE you have to use artsd.

Which plugins aren't working? If you use firefox post the output of this command (your firefox path may be different):
ls -l /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
When you say you can't "access the compiler globally" do you mean you can't run gcc as a standard user? And what distro are you running (you should set your profile accordingly)?

Hey again
Thanks for your reply
Well i am using KDE. I tried the artsd command and i got this

can't register Arts::MidiManager
There are already artsd objects registered, looking if they are active...

Error: Can't add object reference (probably artsd is already running).
If you are sure it is not already running, remove the relevant files:


Also i tried the ls -l command and i got
total 2168

Any ideas?
