    sun java 6 plugin for firefox 3.0


    im on xubuntu 7.10
    i just downloaded firefox 3.0 alpha 8 and transferred all my bookmarks,history,etc. from firefox 2. then i uninstalled firefox 2. but it uninstalled sun-java6-plugin and when i try to reinstall sunjava6 plugin in synaptic it wont let me install the plugin without installing firefox 2 aswell.

    how can i get the plugin to install without having to install firefox 2 on my computer?

    You could install java manually using the bin file (non rpm) from Sun and then create a symlink from libjavaplugin_oji.so to your Firefox plugins directory.

    Follow the links for Java SE and then download the JRE bin file.
