The Java 2 plugin is the first I've tried to install with firefox.

    Firefox Java 2 plugin problem


    The Java 2 plugin is the first I've tried to install with firefox. When the app loads I get an error
    Code:
    LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library /home/nathacof/firefox/plugins/java2/plugin/i386/ns600/libjavaplugin_oji.so [/home/nathacof/firefox/plugins/java2/plugin/i386/ns600/libjavaplugin_oji.so: undefined symbol: __vt_17nsGetServiceByCID]
    Anyone know why this is happening? No errors when I was installing the Java 2 plugin either.

    Running Slackware Linux 9.1 full install.

    it looks like you dont have permission for the file, try as root, or change the permissions of the folder(s) so that a regular user can run it.

    Could this be because I'm using the folder created by unpacking a tar.gz file? And to change folder permissions it's chmod 777 (for everyone?) /dir/name/here?

    Thanks for your help.

    possibly, im not even positive that it is a permissions based error, most of the time that produces a 'insufficent permissions' or something of the like, it was just a guess, but try changing the permisions of the folder. It shouldn't b b/c you untared to the folder.

    FireFox Problems

    Do you have GCC installed?? If not try that.

    Also as root make a copy of libjavaplugin_oji.so and place it in

    .mozilla/plugins

    in your home directory.
