Thread: Opera 9.64 JAVA

  1. #1

    Smile Opera 9.64 JAVA

    Every thing works fine in ff3.5 as far as java and applets go, but not in Opera 9.64. I need the correct path according to the directions as listed below: I have tried these two paths and although they are valid, it still does not work.
    /etc/alternatives/jre_1.6.0/lib/amd64
    /etc/alternatives/jre_1.6.0/lib/amd64

    Opera uses the Java 2 Runtime Environment (JRE) directly, rather than through the use of a Web browser plug-in. Before proceeding, you may wish to test Java to see if Opera has been able to auto-detect your Java installation using our test applet. If Opera does not show this applet (an animated analog clock), you can try adding the correct Java path for your system in Opera's preferences:
    Go to Tools > Preferences > Advanced > Content.
    Click the "Java options" button. If this button is dimmed, first check the "Enable Java" option.
    Click the "Choose" button for the "Java path" field.
    Navigate to the Java directory and click "OK". The path you are looking for is the directory of your Java installation containing the files libjava.so and libawt.so. On the command line, type: find / -name libjava.so 2> /dev/null
    For example, on a Debian system, the path is: /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-sun/jre/lib/i386
    Click the "Validate Java path" button. If you get an error message, try again with a different path.
    Click "OK" to save your changes and exit the Java dialog.
    Click "OK" to save your changes and exit the Preferences dialog.

    If I go to Java Options and paste your path and try to validate it, it says Could not find a valid Java installation.

    Enter another directory and try again.

    In the usr/lib/browserplugins the libflashplayer.so and the livejavaplugin_oji.so

    are grayed out.

    Interesting, the applet test for opera 9.64 does not show the clock using ubuntu or Suse but the morningstar applet works in ubuntu.

    Not sure, but I do know Opera's applets were working when FF3.5 was working, before we went through all the work together gettin FF3.5 applets to work again. You would think if one works the other would too
    Why when I enable Java does it not stay enabled. Any way this is a valid path but it does not do the job:

    /etc/alternatives/jre_1.6.0/lib/amd64/

    The path looks like it should be

    /usr/lib64/jvm/java-1.6.0-sun-1.6.0/jre/lib/amd64/libjava.so

    That is exactly what I thought it should be. Opera will not validate it. This is the msg. I get:

    Could not find a valid Java installation.

    Enter another directory and try again.

    When I use the file sys to track down the files in that path they are all there.
