!#@$java%%#$konqueror!@#%$mozilla*+%^install


I ran into a problem getting java to work. I did the following:

<<First, create (as root) a "java" subdirectory in the /usr directory. Download the self-extracting (not RPM) file of j2re-1_4_2 from Sun. Move (as root) the file to /usr/java. Cd (as root) to the /usr/java and issue the following 2 commands:

chmod a+x j2re-1_4_2-linux-i586.bin
./j2re-1_4_2-linux-i586.bin

Read the instructions and choose "yes" to untar it. When done, issue this command:

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

Now, to set java to work with Mozilla, issue (as root) this command:

ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so /*/libjavaplugin_oji.so
*Your Mozilla plugin directory

To set java to work with Konqueror, make (as user) path to java executable (KDE Control Center->Internet->Web Browser->Java):

/usr/java/java >>


It doesn't work, and I think I must have left something out. When I try to create link, it tells me no such file or directory.

[root@david java]# ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla_1.3/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so
ln: creating symbolic link `/usr/lib/mozilla_1.3/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so' to `/usr/java/j2re1.4.2/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so': No such file or directory
[root@david java]#

The file that is missing is the /usr/lib/mozilla_1.3/plugins/libjavaplugin

What I have is

/usr/lib/mozilla-1.3/plugins/libnullplugin.so

I thought I was creating the link in the mozilla plugin folder, but I obviously messed up somewhere. Can you help?

TIA David

Don't you have a file /usr/java/j2re1.4.2/plugin/i386/ns4/libjavaplugin.so ?
I'm using the java sdk and not the java re so try to do a search in the /usr/java directory to find a file containing the text "javaplugin" and then link the file found to /your/mozilla/plugin/path.

Have a look at mozilla.weebeastie.net -How I installed the Java plugin andhttp://mozdev.org ,it just might help you on your way.
As for setting up java in Konqueror try this:Konqueror-settings-Configure Konqueror-Java & Java script-enable java globally-path to java executable or java should look like this:/usr/java/j2re1.4.1_04/bin/java.For good measure you should enable java script globally.

Yes, I do. The problem seems to be with the link. I may have syntax wrong, but I am not sure how. This is what happened when I tried ns4:

[root@david david]# ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2/plugin/i386/ns4/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla_1.3/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so
ln: creating symbolic link `/usr/lib/mozilla_1.3/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so' to `/usr/java/j2re1.4.2/plugin/i386/ns4/libjavaplugin_oji.so': No such file or directory
[root@david david]#

It looks like a link command failed, and I am not sure which one.

The link syntax is correct, but it just says that the file `/usr/java/j2re1.4.2/plugin/i386/ns4/libjavaplugin_oji.so doesn't exist.
Can you tell me what's the content of the directory /usr/java/j2re1.4.2/plugin/i386/ns4 ?

libjavaplugin_oji.so

it is a 275.3 KB shared library rwxe-xr-x

I also cannot get it to work in konqueror, and I have tried all the combos, Global, not global, ns4, ns610, etc. Have also scratched java and re-downloaded and re-installed several times in case of corrupted download. I know the answer is simple: I just can't see it.

[root@david java]#

libjavaplugin_oji.so

last part of link

should read
ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla_1.3/plugins/

to create new link in folder
its saying there is no such folder or file in there
you are putting one in there

EDIT: the plugin in ns4 doesnt have th "_oji." part

Correct on ns4, only one which does not have that.

[root@david plugins]# ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin.so /usr/lib/mozilla_1.3/plugins/

[root@david plugins]#

I seem to be running in circles.

ok from your previous post

[root@david plugins]# ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so/usr/lib/mozilla_1.3/plugins/
[root@david plugins]#

if you are in the plugin directory of mozilla or netscape you can leave off the <destination part of the link command
also if you decide to put it in you should have a space between the <source> and <destination>

just noticed that


Edit:don't let the typo's mess with ya

It works!!! I know that this is not the "approved" way of getting this done but:

opened shell
su root
cd /usr/bin
./mozilla

Navigate to netscape:

http://wp.netscape.com/plugins/index.html

click on find plugins
find platform and click on linux
click on java
click on download and install

Not very elegant, but it WORKED. Yaaayyyyy

Incidentally, thanx for the help. We learn far more from our failures than our successes.
