firefox and java applets, no suitable plugins found?


I have a few java demo applets, but when I try to run them through my web pages, I just get "no suitable plugins found". There seem to be no clues as to what kind of plugin it is looking for?

You need the GCJ plugin in Firefox to run Java. You should find suitable advice at either the Sun or Mozilla websites. It's also worth googling "linux firefox java plugin installation" and the name of your distro, which may find a site giving more readable instructions.

Thanks for that.

This morning I found that I had a file called

libjavaplugin_oji.so

buried in

/usr/java/jre1.6.0_10/plugin/i386/ns7/

so I needed to go to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

and make a symbolic link (I could have just copied it of course)

That (seems to have) solved the problem (after restarting firefox).
