    can't install java plugin 1.41 in netscape 7

    hello all
    first i don't understand why in windows version there is a java plugin in the netscape intellation
    and in linux there isn't.
    i downloaded j2se 1.41 plugin from sun's site.
    i installed the rpm and still netscape says that it needs to download the plugin when it needs it.
    i tried adding the mime type in netscape helper applications like this
    i put in the mime type: application/x-java-vm
    and for an application i put: /usr/java/j2re1.4.1_02/plugin/i386/ns610/
    (there were 3 folders for plugins one ns4 one ns6 and one ns610 so i tried the newest).
    but still nescape tells me that it needs to doanload the java plugin.
    does anybody knows how to make this work.

    link it

    Assuming that you correctly installed J2SE1.4.1, all you really need to do is create a soft link. I'm using mozilla and my Java home directory is /usr/java.
    bash$ ln -s /usr/java/jre/plugin/i386/ns610/ /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
    Once that's done, you can test if the plugin is installed correctly by going to Help -> About Plugins in the Netscape menubar. You might need to restart Netscape after you run the code.
    The best things in life are free.
