I've searched these forums and found these links:
Firefox + Java RE Plugin - Linux Forums
java plugin for firefox - Linux Forums
Unfortunately neither of them help. When I go to the "test your java" page at sun, I still get the "click here to download java" button.
I've downloaded and installed the self-extracting file from sun, and I've put a softlink in /usr/lib/firefox-22.214.171.124/plugins,I tried putting this link in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins and /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins with no success.Code:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 48 2007-10-22 20:48 libjavaplugin_oji.so -> /opt/jre1.6/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
Also there is no mention of java in "about : plugins" on firefox.
Can anyone help? I'm ready to throw this computer through the window... :x
