Java breaks down each reboot.

I have a problem in that I installed java, got JRE plugins up and working and eventually was seeing java applets on both Mozilla and Galeon browsers.

I closed down for the day and booted the next day to find that it wasn't working any more.

The ln -s link is still there and java is still enabled in the browsers.

Any ideas what is happening here? Does anyone else have to totally reinstall Java and the links every time you reboot?

Any suggestions?

Have you set the PATH and JAVA_HOME environment variables in you .bash_profile in your home directory?


export PATH
export JAVA_HOME
where you have installed java to /usr/local/java.

This means that these two environment variables are set each time you log in.

I hope this helps
