    Default Installing Java Runtime and enable in Firefox -Suse 11.2

    Hi,

    I have tried to install and enable java, follow the instructions of this link: "http://www.java.com/en/download/help/5000010500.xml#100" when I try to enable de java, for firefox, I can't linked de java with the browser, because I can't find de folder "plugins" on the path --> /lib/usr/lib/firefox).

    Someone can help me to enable java on firefox ?
    There is another way to install java and enable?

    Thanks in advance.

    Java should already be installed.

    In the browser type:

    Code:
    about:plugins
    what does it show
    Leap 15.1_KDE

    Hi,

    I only see "The IcedTea Java Web Browser Plugin 1.6 (suse-5.9.4-i386), but I neet to run the version from "sun systems", when I check "http://www.java.com/es/download/installed.jsp" it tells me that is not installed.

    Using repositories I installed de control panel Sun Java plug in 16.0.u17, Can I use it to enable with firefox?

    When installing packages its normally practice to open up YAST in openSUSE, instead of going from site A, B C, X, Y, Z to hunt for software.
    A friend of mine is going to do a full series on openSUSE 11.2 on installing software and stuff soon so maybe I will post it when he is done.

    You shouldn't need to install anything manually. Use YaST - Software Management
    Occasionally you might need to add a repository to get access to more applications (Eg; Multi-media)
    Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide - openSUSE Forums
    Leap 15.1_KDE
