installing jre into mandrake
have mandrake 10. installed, and it works fine. downloaded jre from
java.com, and have it on the desktop but can't get it into mozilla
web browser. i use kde(konkorer)but kde says to get plugins into
mozilla and kde will scan those. i am pretty new, so if you respond.
please be as basic and specific as possible. thanks
Installing JRE into Firefox 2.0
This was the only line that could get Java running in Firefox 2.0 for me:
If the plugin wasn't installed when the link was made, it just wouldn't work.
ln -s /usr/java/jre1.5.0_09/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so ./libjavaplugin_oji.so
The instructions I followed are at http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/faqs/firefox-linux.html under "How do I Install Java?"
