Running Java Applets


Preface: I started using Linux about a year ago, but got away from it before I really started understanding. Im trying to get back into it now, but have lost most of what I learned.

Im trying to get a java applet to run (TopCoder.com Competition actually) and nothing is happening. Ive installed the latest JRE, or at least I thought I did, and still nothing is happening. What do I need to do to get java applets to run on my machine here. its a redhat 9 install

thanks

First from the terminal prompt type ja then hit the tab key. Hopefully java is one of the options.
If so the example is:

java -jar /path/to/myapp.jar

Have Fun,
Larry

If you are using Mozilla http://java.mozdev.org/java_xpis/

Read the version you need and delete the current plugin that is not working before installation

After installation, if you prefer to use Konqueror,
add the Mozilla Plugin directory which will be /home/your-name/.mozilla/plugins
via Settings Configure Konqueror. After adding the path hit the scan for new plugins button.

Hope that helps this time.
I have configured Konqueror to open Mozilla for web page viewing so you can guess which I prefer.
I have also setup up pdf files to open in acrobat reader separately - acroread %u
