Talking Yep, another jre question!

I've searched and searched and read and read but I'm still having trouble getting java to work under Opera 6 ( the latest release ). I've donwloaded jre1.3.1 and 1.4.1 ( the rpm.bin ), installed them according to directions, set up the path of the plugins for opera, yet it seems some applets work (not many ) yet some just give me the "loading <appletname>.class" message in the box. I looked at the plugin path under Opera again and it's got some goofy control-type characers in the description of it. It doensn't just say Java(tm) plugin, it says #### Java(tm) Plugin ( where # are just goofy unrecongnizable characters ). Any hints or suggestions?

Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Any other suggestions, comments, snide remarks?

It worked for me fine when I setup java plugin for netscape and imported to opera, unfortunatelly opera quit working for me and took with itself netscape 7, anyway I preffer galeon over all of them, so try this netscape trick it might work.
[me@mydomain /usr/local/netscape/plugins] ln -s /usr/local/jre/plugin/netscape4/
then in opera's prefferences netscape plugins.
