View Full Version : [SOLVED] JRE plugin problem in Swiftfox

March 21st, 2010, 12:12 AM
Hi guys,

I have a strange problem with Swiftfox. I am using Ubuntu 9.10 with Swiftfox 3.6, and OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.6.1).

I can not get Swiftfox recognize the JRE plugin. I have a symlink
at /usr/lib/swiftfox/plugins/ that points to /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun- and still Swiftfox would not recognize my JRE. The same symlink is at /usr/lib/mozulla/plugins
Any ideas what could be wrong?

Recheck with this (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=142798) guide. Step 2.

Btw, check is the symlinks are well set up. Also the permissions.

The symlinks are well set when I ls the folder they are in, I can see the references. Both the symlink, both the referenced files have 777 permissions now, and it still does not work. BTW, all the other plugins are working.
Regular Firefox was never installed on this machine. May this be the cause?

Thanks for the reply. The link (http://forums.getswiftfox.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=492&p=1641&hilit=java+plugin#p1641) you have posted worked for me. No Swiftfox restart needed. Everything worked right after executing the command.
