Problems with Java plugins
I have unzipped the java runtime enviroment 1.4.2 into the directory /usr/j2re142/j2re1.4.2 and created a link of the file "" in the "ns610" directory into the plugins directory of my browser, mozilla firebird.
However, when I restarted Firebird and went to a site using a java applet, it would not start, and asked me again if I wished to download a plugin. The plugin that it downloads for me did not work either (so I deleted it to save disk space.)

I don't understand why it isn't working. Maybe I've installed J2RE, but not actually turned it on. I have no clue. Has anyone else had this problem, or successfully installed java?

All hints, advice and solutions are welcome!

-Thanks, GhostOfYoda

Ok. I have fixed the problem. I was linking to the wrong plugin. I wanted the one in 'ns610-gcc', not in 'ns610'.

I'm using RH 9, graphical workstation, and trying to install the Java runtime ... I need step by step instructions ...

I read that I need to "ins" the file to the Mozilla plugin directory ? Can someone help ?
