Thread: Firefox 3.5 and Java

  1. #1

    Default Firefox 3.5 and Java

    In my Firefox 3.5 on Suse 11.1 java applets are not running. I tried a lot of test sites, eg Java Tester - What Version of Java Are You Running?

    about plugins shows:'The IcedTea Web Browser Plugin 1.4 (suse-24.5.2-i386) executes Java applets.' with all mimes activated.

    Furthermore under settings-> content java is activated.

    Java runs well for other applications than ff3.5

    Any Ideas on how to get java running with ff3.5 ?

    PS: Java applets run well with konquerer, must be a ff3.5 issue

    Did you do this
    Next you'll need to create a symbolic link for your web browser to use the java plugin.

    Open a terminal and type this:

    Code:
    su
    enter your root password

    Code:
    Code:
    cd /usr/lib/browser-plugins
    Code:
    Code:
    ln -s /etc/alternatives/jre_1.6.0/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so

    Did the complete howto
    -but- thanks a lot, due to your post I checked the link and on my system it has to point to 'jre_sun' and not 'jre_1.6.0'.
    Now everything is fine.
