    Default Where is Mozilla?

    I downloaded and installed java, but I have to create a symbolic link in the mozilla/plugins directory. I can't find where this directory is. I looked around on the internet and every suggestion for it's location I find doesn't work. Is there an easy way to find this directory?

    Where have you tried from those suggestions? Every user should have a
    ~/.mozilla (not ~/.Mozilla) directory if they have used Mozilla products.
    As the directory starts with a dot/period it is hidden by default, though
    you can still see it with something like `ls -lad ~/.mozilla` or by
    unhiding hidden things in the GUI interface. Inside there I have
    'plugins' but maybe that is the part not working for you. Also, Mozilla
    is a company, so which product are you using? Is it the product that came
    with the system or something you added later and if so to where?

    Good luck.

    Thanks for the reply. I ended up finding the .mozilla directory. It was in /home/username/.mozilla. There was no plugins directory. I'm assuming this is because I currently have no plugins installed in firefox (which is the product I'm trying to install the plugins for, btw). So I made a plugins directory and linked to the plugin in that directory; however, it didn't do anything. I still don't have java enabled in firefox. Now I looked up on java's site and it says to find the plugins directory in the firefox installation directory. Is firefox installed in the /home/username/.mozilla directory? I couldn't find it there.

    As a side note, I'm constantly running into problems when it comes to finding where something is installed or located. Firefox came installed with SUSE 11.1 and since there is no 'program files' directory (to my knowledge), I don't know where anything is. Is there an easy way to find files/directories/installation locations in the terminal?

    Do you realy know what you are doing?
    IMHO one does simply install Firefox and Java from the repos and that is it.

    When you want to know where a installeddpackage put all the installed files, go to
    YaST > Software > Software Management, search for the package, select it and choose the File List tab below. For Firefox it gives (in my system):

    Default Re: Where is Mozilla?

    There was no need to install firefox, as it installed automatically when I installed openSUSE 11.1. It may have been easier to install from the repos in YaST (if that's what you're speaking of), but what happened was I encountered a webpage that required java, so I clicked the 'install plugins' link. It said it required manual install and I went to the java website, which discussed an installation process involving the terminal. That's how I got to where I am. Regardless, I've solved my problem supposedly by creating the new directory 'plugins' in .mozilla and making the link to the plugin from there (I was looking at the wrong directions on the java site). I went back into firefox, went to tools>add-ons>plugins and there was the java plugin.

    Thanks for the help and advice on finding installation files.

    Default Re: Where is Mozilla?

    The install of Firefox during installation of openSUSE is done from the DVD (also a repo) or from the network repos (the NONOSS one IIRC). The result is the same. java-1_5_0-sun and java-1_5_0-sun-plugin are also in the NONOSS repo and when they are not installed by default, they are mentioned in the appropriate "to do after install" docs (same like the multimedia things). I doubt if I ever did something special to get a plugin for FF. I wonder if Konqueror knowa about a java plugin in your system.

    Are you running 64 or 32 bit? The locations for both of these are in our very own how-to's!

    64-bit:

    installing 64bit Java on openSUSE 11.1 - openSUSE Forums

    32-bit:

    Installing 32-bit Java the Yast way - openSUSE Forums

    Take Care,

    I saw those tutorials (I'm 32 bit). You say to link the plugin to

    Code:
    cd /usr/lib/browser-plugins
    but I don't believe that's where I had to link mine. At least I don't think it worked after I tried that. I believe what made it work was when I created a plugin directory in the .mozilla directory (not logged in as root user) and linked the plugin to that directory. I tried a lot of stuff tho, so it could have been something else. I'm going to try installing the plugin on my home pc using that method and see if that's it. (The plugin isn't in firefox on my home pc, either, btw)

    Hi,

    Please be advised that the way I linked to is for when you download Java from yast. There's a link in the beginning to linking Java from having downloaded it from Sun's website.

    Just in case you can't find it it's here:

    Installing 32-bit Java from Java.com (rpm terminal yast) - openSUSE Forums

    Either way works for me everytime on fresh installs.
