su to root
type
updatedb

when it's finished
type
locate libjavaplugin

then
still as root

type

ln -s /path/to/libjavaplugin /path/to/browser/plugin/folder

replace the paths above with the correct paths

this is telling linux to put a symbolic link in the broswer plugins folder to the java browser plugin

if you do this ln-s thing
make a link in /usr/lib/mozilla-x.x.x/plugins and also for opera and netscape and so on (if you have them)
konqueror looks in the mozilla plugins folder for appropriate plugins

Have a look atwww.mozdev.org and Google to Debian GNU/Linux Java FAQ>Chapter 8-Java Plugins for Browsers.

Make sure you have java installed in: /usr/java/j2re1.4.1_04 or whatever your version is.

the first part of the path is the location of the java plugin

the second half of the path is the location of the browser plugin folder

so:
if i do "locate libjavaplugin" on my system the results are as follows

/usr/java/j2re1.4.1_01/plugin/i386/ns600/libjavaplugin_oji.so
/usr/java/j2re1.4.1_01/plugin/i386/ns610/libjavaplugin_oji.so

so to link from this to the browser is

ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.1_01/plugin/i386/ns610/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/local/mozilla/plugins

linking from java plugin folder to browser plugin folder

hope this helps
