    Default "Fatal Error: No vendor resource!" from Java when trying to use java plugin in firefox

    I have a standard x86_64 11.4 install. I switched from Openjdk to Sun's java by installing the following packages:
    Code:
    sudo zypper in java-sun
    sudo zypper rm java-1_6_0-openjdk-plugin java-1_6_0-openjdk
    sudo zypper in java-1_6_0-sun-plugin
    I'm using firefox 4 and the java plugin appears to work. If I go to Sun's Java test website it says I'm using the latest version (Java SE 6 Update 24) and that it's working. However I can't run any other java applets besides the simple test ones. Ones that worked fine in 11.3 on the same machine don't work now.

    Code:
    sudo zypper in java-sun
    sudo zypper rm java-1_6_0-openjdk-plugin java-1_6_0-openjdk
    sudo zypper in java-1_6_0-sun-plugin

    show us the command that produces the fatal error...

    want to see the the command *and* the output--copy/paste both back to

    There's no command, it's when I try to use a site that uses Java applets in Firefox. I've enabled logging and tracing in the java control panel thingy and here are the results:

    The log file from ~/.java/deployment/log: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?> <!DOCTYPE log SYSTEM "lo - Pastebin.com
    The trace file from ~/.java/deployment/log: security: property package.access value sun.,com.sun.xml.internal.ws.,com.sun.xm - Pastebin.com

    ok, this is *far* past my capability (and patience) to trouble shoot
    (like you, i would have started with the java tests at Sun)..

    have you tried using Java in Opera or Chrome? (maybe it is a FF4
    problem....have you upgraded from the beta which shipped with 11.4, to
    the non-beta version of FF4??

    other than that i'm stumped...hopefully a real guru will happen by..

    well, you might try using YaST, search on java and see if anything of
    the openJDK remains...if it does right click to mark it to be removed,
    and while there right click on the Sun java and set it to "update"
    (which i think should be called "refresh")...oh, and maybe you have more
    than one version of Sun Java installed (that is possible if you
    'upgraded' to 11.4, i think) if so remove all but the newest version..

    i don't think it likely to have an impact, but you might also try using
    yast to add a new test user, then log out and log in as that new user
    and see if java in FF works there..

    but, it might be all of that will just serve to keep you busy while
    waiting for the guru...i do not know what to do..

    Thanks, have tried all that. In Chrome it can't detect the Java plug-in.

    Oh well, it might just be this particular ****** old Java applet - it's a management interface for a fibre channel switch that hasn't been updated in ages.
    I still think Java web applets are a buggy mess that should be thrown out the window though
