Thread: java missing in SeaMonkey?

  1. #1

    Default java missing in SeaMonkey?

    I just updated Java and when I checked in my plugins for SeaMonkey, Java is not listed, not even IcedTea. When I looked at FireFox's plugins, the only Java listed was IcedTea.

    How can I get SeaMonkey to know that Java is installed? I looked for the 32 bit Java from within YaST but saw none, just the 64 bit.

    Anyway, these are the java's installed:

    java-ca-certificates-1-9.1.noarch
    java-1_6_0-sun-1.6.0.u26-0.2.1.x86_64
    timezone-java-2011g-0.2.1.noarch
    java-1_6_0-sun-plugin-1.6.0.u26-0.2.1.x86_64
    java-1_6_0-openjdk-plugin-1.6.0.0_b20.1.9.7-1.2.1.x86_64
    java-1_6_0-sun-devel-1.6.0.u26-0.2.1.x86_64
    java-1_6_0-openjdk-1.6.0.0_b20.1.9.7-1.2.1.x86_64

    I'm running SuSE 11.4 and my browser of choice is SeaMonkey 2.0.14.

    This is a list of my ~/.mozilla/plugins folder:
    Code:
    libflashplayer.so
    libnpjp2.so
    libskypebuttons.so
    nppdf.so
    npwrapper.libskypebuttons.so
    npwrapper.nppdf.so
    npwrapper.packagekit-plugin.so
    npwrapper.xineplugin.so
    packagekit-plugin.so
    xineplugin.so

    a reinstall might help

    open terminal
    Code:
    su -
    zypper rm java
    
    (continue through that, then)
    
    zypper in java

    @gymnart: you need java-1_6_0-sun-* and not java-1_6_0-openjdk-*

    Uninstall those openjdk packages.

    I was just hit by this.

    I used java (openjdk) as recently as yesterday, via the firefox plugin.

    Today it is missing.

    Yesterday, there was an "icedtea-web" installed as an update. It is described as "Java Web Start and plugin implementation".
    It seems that it completely fails to implement the java plugin part of that.

    So an update has removed important functionality without even giving a warning.

    It seems that I can reinstall the openjdk plugin, but that requires removing icedtea-web, with which it apparently conficts.

    The loss of functionality is horribly broken behavior. I guess I will report it as a bug. And then I'll have to decide whether to reinstall the openjdk plugin, or go with Sun java. I had been sticking with openjdk, despite some deficiencies, on the principle of supporting open source.

    This bug seems to have already been reported
    https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=702825

    I chose to install Sun java, and use:
    Code:
    update-alternatives --config java
    update-alternatives --config javaplugin
    to switch to using Sun java, at least for now.

    ok, I think I got it now.
    rpm -qa | grep java now gives me:

    java-ca-certificates-1-9.1.noarch
    java-1_6_0-sun-plugin-1.6.0.u26-0.2.1.i586
    java-1_5_0-gcj-compat-1.5.0.0-117.3.x86_64
    timezone-java-2011g-0.2.1.noarch
    java-1_6_0-sun-alsa-1.6.0.u26-0.2.1.i586
    java-1_6_0-sun-1.6.0.u26-0.2.1.i586

    I had to go for the 32 bit version and NOT the 64 bit version. (My system is 64 bit btw) It wouldn't allow me to have both the 32 and 64 bit versions. Having the 32 bit version shows up in SeaMonkey now. I'm so glad that the system puts it in the right place for you now-a-days. It was not fun to have to do this manually before.

    A new problem though:
    First, I did what nick11682 said and it removed some libreoffice components. After finding and reinstalling Java, I made sure to re-install those libroffice components and then I made sure to do as caf4926 said, have only the sun java versions installed. (Interestingly though, java-1_5_0-gcj-compat-1.5.0.0-117.3.x86_64 was installed and when I wanted to uninstall it, YaST wanted to install the openjdk versions so I canceled that).

    When I start Libreoffice, it now complains of not having java and that it is needed. Java does not show up in its options (Tools > Options > Java) whereas, before, it did show up. Libreoffice says java is defective.

    So, rpm -qa | grep libreoffice gives me this:

    I guess we need to switch to another thread now? Or is this new problem related?

    A correct setting for a 64 bit is as mine:

    Code:
    timezone-java-2011g-0.2.1.noarch
    java-1_6_0-sun-1.6.0.u26-0.2.1.x86_64
    java-ca-certificates-1-9.1.noarch
