    Default Java browser plugin problem


    I follow this guide EXACTLY: 'How do I download and install Java for my
    Linux computer? - 1.5.0, 6.0'
    (http://java.com/en/download/help/5000010500.xml#rpm)

    I get this message when I try to install it: "package jre-1.6.0_10-fcs
    is already installed"

    I make sure it's not installed in YAST. I search for "jre-1.6.0_10-fcs"
    using find files/folders and I can't find anything.

    I've had this problem for some months now and I'm dying for a friendly
    person to help me out.

    Why not install it with YaST? It's in the 'non-oss' repo. If you don't
    have that repo added just go to YaST>Software Management. Then go to the
    repositories menu. Choose to add a repository and then choose the
    community repositories option. There you should find the correct
    'non-oss' repo for your version of openSUSE. Once it is added hit accept
    and then in Software Management search for Sun...

    That was my first try a couple of month ago but it didn't work. I've
    tried it over and over again. I don't get that to work. I install it, it
    is installed, but when I trie to play a Java game on internet it doesn't
    work. I think the problem lies in that when I try to install Java
    manualy it says it's already installed. Any more suggestions. Thanks for
    the help, it's realy needed for me not to blow up.

    Are you using Firefox? Typing
    PHP code:
    --------------------
    aboutlugins
    --------------------
    in the address line will tell you if firefox has found java. Perhaps it
    is installed ok but firefox is not looking in the right place?

    Have you had a look at'here' (http://en.opensuse.org/Java) and 'here'
    (http://en.opensuse.org/Installing_Su...n_SUSE_Linux)?

    "aboutlugins" gives me some plugins but not Java. My guess is your
    guess that Firefox can't find it because even "Find files/folders" can't
    find it. I've checked the links you sent. Maybe if there is someway of
    deleting it through the terminal so I can install it fresh? Ideas?

    Thanks for all the help by the way.

    Hi. I have java and it works fine. I searched for the file
    "jre-1.6.0_10-fcs" but could not find it. You want to make sure you have
    the java-1_6_0-sun-*plugin* package installed from YaST as well as the
    java-1_6_0-sun package.

    Are you using a 64 bit machine, there seems to be problems with that.

    Try typing java -version in a terminal, does it show java is installed?

    "Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_07-b06)
    Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 10.0-b23, mixed mode"

    Can this help us in some way?

    I had just installed a new version of nspluginwrapper using the terminal
    and uninstalled an older one using YAST when everything came to a sudden
    halt. When I tried to reinstall Java; the browser plugin won't let
    itself be installed. And now I can't even get into YAST anymore. What
    can this be?

    Tanks for all the help.
