    Make sure java lib path is correct.
    You may need to change thae path....

    ln -s /opt/jre1.6.0_04/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so

    Hi megerdin,


    Thanks for your advice.


    I install 64bit jre-6u6-linux-x64.bin


    $ locate libjavaplugin_oji.so

    No printout


    I suspect whether this is a plugin.

    No, sun does produce a 64 bit version but it's not very reliable. Issues like this one are very common - that's why I always advise people to install the 32 bit version of Ubuntu rather than the 64 bit. There are some other issues too, Flash for example.
    Distribution: Archlinux
    Processor: 3 x Amd 64 bit
    Ram: 4 GB
    Graphics card: Nvidia GeForce 9800 GT

    Hi folks,


    Thanks for your advice.


    This is a 64 bit server box. I run web browser only occassionally. I have solved the problem of flash and vedio player plugins on this 64bit box leaving behind java plugin unsolved. They are working w/o problem. I trust 64bit java plugin can be solved. I read some document on online. But testing the solution on server is not preferred. I'll continue watching the development on 64bit java plugin. Thanks
