Question Java on Konqueror


Before I tell you my problem, I would like to say that I am a
Couple days of using Linux, maybe a week.
Ok, so here it is, I just installed the Java plug-in from Sun but I can't get it to work on Konqueror. It worked in Mozilla but not in Konqueror.
I get :
Quote:
Error: java executable not found
I want to play the games on freearcade.com but I keep getting that error in Konqueror

The path for the java executable is: java
Isn't it that what it should be

Your probably missing a symlink. Type into a console
which java

If you get nothing but the prompt back then thats the problem.
if it was sun check /usr/java/j2re1.4.2 if this directory exists. do the following as root (su).

cd /usr/bin
ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2/bin/java java

This should solve the problem.

try modifying the path to

/usr/java/j2re1.4.1_01/bin/java


make sure the version number of java matches the one you installed

i think the latest version is 1.4.2

in konq, click Settings > Configure Konqueror in the menu bar.
in the left pane select the icon labeled Plugins. by default, your mozilla path should be listed in the window on the right. if it's not, add the path to mozilla where the java plugin is installed and working to the path. click the find new plugins button.

now on the left hand pane scroll and click the icon labeled Java & JavaScript. click the Java tab on the right pane and make sure the box labeled Enable Java Globally is checked. do the same for the Javascript tab (if you want to enable javascript that is).

Click the apply button and then the ok button. you should be able to access the applets on websites.

Didn't work

I changed the thing in Konqueror to /usr/java/j2re1.4.2/bin/java but I still get the error saying that it can't find the executable.
