    Java Run Time Environment


    I've installed java using yum. The following were installed:

    java-1.5.0-gcj i386 1.5.0.0-17.fc8 fedora 119 k
    java_cup i386 1:0.10-0.k.6jpp.1 fedora 180 k
    jpackage-utils noarch 1.7.3-1jpp.3.fc8 fedora 60 k
    libgcj i386 4.1.2-33 fedora 19 M
    sinjdoc i386 0.5-4.fc7 fedora 822 k

    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.

    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.
