    HOWTO: Installing Java for firefox.

    If you want to install java with firefox download the java file here and then run:

    sudo chmod a+x j2re-1_4_2_05-linux-i586.bin
    ./j2re-1_4_2_05-linux-i586.bin
    sudo mv j2re-1_4_2_05 /usr/local/
    cd /home/username/.mozilla/plugins
    ln -s /usr/local/j2re1.4.2_05/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so libjavaplugin_oji.so
    This will give you working java in firefox

    Re: Installing Java for firefox.

    You just need to add a "libjavaplugin_oji.so" to the end of the last command.

    Code:
    ln -s /usr/local/j2re1.4.2_05/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so libjavaplugin_oji.so

    Re: Installing Java for firefox.

    Funny my firefox doesn't have a plugin folder

    This is what I have:

    root@Universe:/home/orion/.mozilla # dir
    appreg firefox pluginreg.dat

    then I checked under firefox folder:

    root@Universe:/home/orion/.mozilla # cd firefox
    root@Universe:/home/orion/.mozilla/firefox # dir
    default.7zs profiles.ini
    root@Universe:/home/orion/.mozilla/firefox #

    anysuggestions?

    just do a quick

    mkdir /home/username/.mozilla/plugins

    that should do it for you.
