Java Runtime Environment (Debian/FireFox)


Just having a bit of trouble getting FireFox is recognise the plugin's existance.

I've symlinked like so:
ether:/usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/plugins# ls -l
total 0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 58 2005-10-28 22:21 -> /usr/java/jre1.5.0_50/plugin/i386/ns7/

I've checked out aboutlugins, too, which told me this:
'No plug-ins are installed'

Any advice you could offer would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,

It should probably be "1.5.0_05" instead of "1.5.0_50"
