java now works at the command line.
The problem is that i can't use applets in firefox, i understand that i need to create a link symbol in /firefox/plugins but, i'm not sure which file is the java plugin file. I know its some form of .so, but not sure which one. Any ideas? There are a load of java folders in both /usr/share and /usr/lib.

Gosh, I remember way back when. It's fairly simple;
The easiest route is to install it via a Graphical Package installer as you don't have to do anything; Just sit back and let it do it's job. (Try System > Administration > Synaptic Package Manager)
My brain is really rusty with Symbolic Links, but someone should know. I'll give a go at trying to remember. I haven't used linux in many months so I've forgot a lot.Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.

Ahh! I remember!
- do cd /firefoxdirectoryhere/
- In your firefox plugins directory, type the following:
ln -s pathtoyourjavadirectory/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so libjavaplugin_oji.so
- This will make a symbolic link from the java plugin to your firefox plugins directory.
- do the same in the ./mozilla/plugins directory just for making sure.Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
