Thread: Java plugin for Firefox

  1. #1

    Default Java plugin for Firefox

    Hi,

    I keep getting this error message, I did a search and didn't find a solution to my Java browser problems .

    gcjwebplugin error: Failed to run /etc/alternatives/../../bin/java. For more detail rerun "firefox -g" in a terminal window.

    Could somebody please direct me to help?

    System: openSUSE 11.2 (i586)
    KDE: 4.3.5 (KDE 4.3.5) "release 0"
    Firefox version 3.5.9

    And what did the "rerun "firefox -g" in a terminal window" do give as "more detail"?

    I only asked because even to me it was clear this information was missing.

    I have in fact no idea what is wrong here, but maybe posting what I have as java helps:
    Code:

    As you see I have two javas, openjdk and sun. That is for a particular reason. You should have the sun ones, not the openjdk.

    I deleted everything java from YaST. There was quite a list obviously causing some conflicts and reinstall the ones you said were necessary.

    Hm, strange.

    BTW when I do
    Code:
    henk@boven:~> firefox -g
    *** nss-shared-helper: Shared database disabled (set NSS_USE_SHARED_DB to enable).
    henk@boven:~>
    I do get something. You realy get nothing?

    And where is your "gcjwebplugin error: ...." message shown, in a pop-up window?

    firefox -g still just opens a new Firefox window.
    The error pop up is no longer there since I deleted and reinstalled.
    I am still unable to view cameras like this
    ɐpCʃZ^[CuJ2

    or use a java based photo uploader such as that on Facebook.

    This is what i have in there now.

    What is the output of
    Code:
    update-alternatives --list java
    Edit
    Actually try
    Code:
    update-alternatives --all
    Man first, have a try at Info, have a look at Wiki, if all that fails Scroogle!!!!!
    If I've helped click on the Rep button I don't know what it does but it sounds cool.

    dave@linux-2z2n:~> update-alternatives --list java
    Absolute path to 'update-alternatives' is '/usr/sbin/update-alternatives', so running it may require superuser privileges (eg. root).

    output is the same for both
