    Unhappy Showing JAVA error in firefox

    Hi, whenever i go to this website

    Morse Code Translator

    I get the error message as follows:
    Code:
    icedteanp plugin error: Failed to run /usr/lib64/jvm/jre//bin/java.  For more detail rerun "firefox -g" in a terminal window
    The website is for translating the given words into a morse code and give it as a audio file.
    When i close the error and try in the website to click translate, the same error reappears.
    I also tried to run as firefox -g in terminal window.. but I get the same error while opening the website

    Please help
    Thankyou

    show us what you get when you follow those instructions....please
    copy/paste the in/output back to this thread using the instructions
    here: http://goo.gl/i3wnr

    as well, please tell us what operating system and version you are
    using...as well as desktop environment..

    and, if you go to this site http://www.javatester.org/version.html do
    you see a pink rectangle...what is written in it?

    and, place this in the nav bar of your firefox and press enter:
    Code:
    about:plugins
    when the new page comes up press Ctrl+F and type
    Code:
    java
    in the search box... do you find a no instances of java there...or
    many...please copy/paste the headline of the longer list, mine looks like
    Code:
    Java(TM) Plug-in 1.6.0_29
    and it is followed by a long list of java stuff....but, i have _only_
    one list....do you have none, one or more? if more, give us the headline
    of all lists..

    by the way, the morse code site works fine with my FF 10 in KDE4.6.0
    with SUN Java..

    Hi DenverD, thanks for your reply
    Here are the responses for your questions.

    1. When I type firefox -g in terminal, i get the following and firefox opens up normally.
    Code:
    anish@linux-jmbg:~> firefox -g
    anish@linux-jmbg:~>
    2. I am using Opensuse 12.1 with gnome 3

    3. No pink rectangle appears when i go the java tester website. Instead, i get the same popup error
    Code:
    icedteanp plugin error: Failed to run /usr/lib64/jvm/jre//bin/java.  For more detail rerun "firefox -g" in a terminal window.
    and in a blue colored box titled "The version and vendor from the JRE"
    Code:
    If Java is working, you will see a pink rectangle above with one line of text that says something like:
                Java Version 1.6.0_22 from Sun Microsystems Inc.   or
           Java Version: 1.3.1 from Apple Computer, Inc.    or
           Java Version: 1.1.4 from Microsoft Corp.
    But in firefox addon, i have IcedTea-web plugin and Java as enabled.

    4. In the firefox about: plugin page, two headings had "java" in them:
    Code:
    IcedTea-Web Plugin (using IcedTea-Web 1.1.3 (suse-1.2-x86_64))
    
    Java(TM) Plug-in 1.6.0_29
    What must I do now?

    very strange!!

    it seems you have the Java plugin installed, but it is not working....i
    wonder if it was incorrectly installed maybe...

    did you install it, if so how?
    or is it the java which was default installed? has it ever worked (to
    you knowledge)?

    in your first post you wrote "Failed to run
    /usr/lib64/jvm/jre//bin/java." and i need to know if you typed that into
    the forum compose window, or did you copy/paste it in, directly from the
    error message? (i ask because it has a troubling extra slash /)

    please shutdown firefox, open a terminal and input each of these
    commands, giving an enter at the end of each line:

    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    uname -a
    cat /etc/SuSE-release
    which java
    ls -hal /usr/lib/browser-plugins/libflash*
    ls -hal /usr/lib64/browser-plugins/libflash*
    ls -hal /usr/lib64/jvm/jre//bin/jav?
    ls -hal /usr/lib64/jvm/jre/bin/jav?
    firefox --version
    firefox --g
    leave the terminal open when finished, then copy and paste the input and
    output back to this thread using the instructions here: http://goo.gl/i3wnr

    I went to the test site DenverD provided the link for, and Java didn't work in
    SeaMonkey (version 2.6.1). aboutlugins revealed the iced-tea plugin was not
    installed.

    In Yast > Software Management Java was installed. Installing iced-tea and
    restarting SeaMonkey didn't enable Java. Forcing an update of both iced-tea and
    Java (right-click each and selecting Update) and then restarting SeaMonkey fixed
    the problem.

    Try this and see if your issue is resolved.

    thanks for your input Thomas!

    it might be interesting to hear enough about both of your situations to
    learn if (maybe) there is a situation where the java plugin is not being
    correctly installed by YaST, or zypper, or if installed manually..

    that is, not putting libflashplayer.so in the correct place while
    'claiming' to install it, is as good as not even unpacking the RPM..

    so, there _may_ be a bug here which needs to get reported...but, so far
    i've not seen enough info to make that decision..

    and, if you are using your real email address that is ok with me, but
    you might want to cloak it or use the suggested method in
    http://forums.opensuse.org/faq.php?faq=novfor#faq_nntp, your call..

    Hi DenverD,

    did you install it, if so how?
    Yes i installed it after browsing this forum. (found a thread in search )

    has it ever worked (to
    you knowledge)?
    No,I am sorry, May be i didnt care to notice.

    in your first post you wrote "Failed to run
    /usr/lib64/jvm/jre//bin/java." and i need to know if you typed that into
    the forum compose window, or did you copy/paste it in, directly from the
    error message? (i ask because it has a troubling extra slash /)
    I copy pasted the content.. and i double checked and there are two slashes before bin.

    after the last command, firefox opens. And i sincerely admit that I don't understand a single word from the above code

    @Thomas: Thanks for your help. When i right click on them, it show only three options: show more info, disable and about. It didnt show any "update" option.

    then, that is probably the problem...see, java is installed in 12.1 by
    default...that is, you should not have had to install it...or, if it was
    not installed by default then that is a good indication you have a
    broken install..

    well, there is another problem or three

    first: stop now and read the paragraph beginning with "IMPORTANT" in the
    thread written for folks new to openSUSE: http://tinyurl.com/33qc9vu,
    among other things it says something like until you know how to fix the
    problems you cause when downloading from the prime four repos, don't.
    and, i'm still a new guy, so i follow the advice and here is how my
    repos look: http://paste.opensuse.org/81397698

    second: for sure you need to
    disable these: 1, 10
    stop refresh on these: 1, 10
    these are duplicates, delete these: 15, 16

    what you do with 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, 9, 11, 14, 17 i do not know! i've never
    used them [heck, i don't even know what a crossToolChain is!] but i'm
    just a user, you seem to be a programmer--is that right? when you
    program using tools is it ok with you that maybe have different tool
    tomorrow than you are using today? see, when you have all of those
    development repos open up to your system then stuff can flow if you use
    the wrong zypper command, or set up YaST wrong..

    that is one reason why that IMPORTANT paragraph warns against having
    more than the main four repos..

    i know what _i_ would do with those eleven! repos (hint: disable and
    stop the refreshing) and end up with four enabled repos (5, 6, 12, 18)
    with only two refreshing (12 & 18--oss and non-oss never change, so
    there is no need to refresh them, ever)


    third: that repo #7 is some kind of a java repo...did you enable that
    repo because you were sure you wanted the java in _that_ repo, rather
    than from the _standard_ repo where java should come from (oss, or #6)??




    > anish@linux-jmbg:~> uname-a
    > If 'uname-a' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the package that contains it, like this:
    > cnf uname-a


    that just above was supposed to be "uname -a" and not "uname-a"



    > anish@linux-jmbg:~> cat /etc/SuSE-release
    > openSUSE 12.1 (x86_64)
    > VERSION = 12.1
    > CODENAME = Asparagus


    ok, i see now you are using openSUSE 12.1 _and_ i see that you don't
    have any (for example) 11.4 or 11.3 repos enabled---that is good!


    > anish@linux-jmbg:~> which java
    > /usr/bin/java


    and, that is good because that is where it is supposed to be..

    > anish@linux-jmbg:~> ls -hal /usr/lib/browser-plugins/libflash*
    > ls: cannot access /usr/lib/browser-plugins/libflash*: No such file or directory


    that means there is no libflashplayer.so (the Flash program) in that
    directory, which is GOOD because it is for 32 bit players, and you have
    a 64 bit system..


    > anish@linux-jmbg:~> ls -hal /usr/lib/browser-plugins/libflash
    > ls: cannot access /usr/lib/browser-plugins/libflash: No such file or directory


    i didn't ask for that command....you need to be more careful....don't
    type, instead copy paste

    > anish@linux-jmbg:~> ls -hal /usr/lib64/browser-plugins/libflash*
    > -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 18M Nov 15 23:06 /usr/lib64/browser-plugins/libflashplayer.so


    ah, and you DO have the 64 bit browser plug in in the correct place!


    > anish@linux-jmbg:~> ls -hal /usr/lib64/jvm/jre//bin/jav?
    > ls: cannot access /usr/lib64/jvm/jre//bin/jav?: No such file or directory


    hmmmmm--there is a problem! it should have returned like:

    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 46K Oct 3 16:51 /usr/lib64/jvm/jre//bin/java*

    > anish@linux-jmbg:~> ls -hal /usr/lib64/jvm/jre/bin/jav?
    > ls: cannot access /usr/lib64/jvm/jre/bin/jav?: No such file or directory



    hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm--there is another problem, it shoul have returned:

    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 46K Oct 3 16:51 /usr/lib64/jvm/jre/bin/java*


    > anish@linux-jmbg:~> firefox --version
    > Mozilla Firefox 7.0.1


    WOW! version 7, you should be on version 10...have you been running YaST
    Online Update regularly ? you sure need to do that!!

    and, if you have not read yet, let me be the first to tell you to
    *disable* or uninstall Apper (the thing that sits in the panel and tells
    you that it is gonna run updates--or maybe it asks, if it asks say NO),
    it is broken!


    > anish@linux-jmbg:~> firefox --g
    > *** nss-shared-helper: Shared database disabled (set NSS_USE_SHARED_DB to enable).



    so, here is what i suggest:

    -clean up your repos, for now at least delete the redundant two, and
    disable all but the main four, and stop the refreshing on all but
    packman and update...do all of that in YaST > Software (on left)
    Software Repositories (on right), when your repos are set as suggested,
    then close YaST Software Repositories

    -and then, open YaST > Software (on left) Software Management (on
    right), search on java, and there should be (like Thomas said) two java
    packages like JAVA(TM) PLUG-IN 1.6.0_29 and ICEDTEA something marked as
    installed (white check mark)...right click on those two and mark them to
    "Update" (green up arrow and green check mark), then press the "Accept"
    button...and, when it is finished removing and replacing those java
    components, close YaST Software Management (what i am hoping for here is
    that it correctly build the links to allow java to be found in
    /usr/lib64/jvm/jre/bin/)

    -then, open YaST Online Update and when it is set itself up there will
    probably be a long list of updates waiting...click the "Accept" button
    and go for a walk...it is gonna take a while...maybe an hour, maybe
    more...depends on how fast your net connection is and how fast your
    machine is...

    do NOT try to abort it, or interrupt it...if you do not have the
    patience, or time, to wait for it...do not run it now, run it tomorrow..

    but, you machine will not be up to date until it has run..

    now, i am basing my time estimate on seeing you have firefox 7
    installed, which to me means you have done no updates in three months!




    > @Thomas: Thanks for your help. When i right click on them, it show only
    > three options: show more info, disable and about. It didnt show any
    > "update" option.


    you have to right click on the package or the box to the left of the
    package name, when you do you will see a menu of : Keep, Delete,
    Update, Protected and others..

    FOLLOWING my list above in order, THEN update the java..

    are you really a programmer??

    Hi DenverD, thankyou for your time and reply.

    Yes i am a bit of programmer (not a hardcore programmer.. Just need to program the microcontroller stuff - that kind of hardware programmer )

    I didnt do yast online update as i was on a slow internet connection. I will do online update on 9th feb when i return home where i have a faster connection (I am away from home)

    But the problem still persists.

    Is there anything else that i must do to resolve the problem? Maybe if the online update of the OS could fix it, then i will post after updating my OS.
    Among all distros, I like opensuse verymuch and its not liking me !!!

    ok, i _guess_ that means the the box next to the Java Runtime and Java
    Browser Plugin does not have a checkmark in it (like the image at
    http://paste.opensuse.org/70664548), and then when you right click you
    see these possible selections: Install, Do Not Install, Taboo--Never
    Install, All in This List and more..

    is that what you see? if so, it means that those packages are _not_
    installed...or, at least according to YaST they are not
    installed...remember earlier i asked you "did you install it, if so
    how?" you answered you had installed it, but you didn't say how...

    i now _guess_ you either used Apper (i tell more on that later) or you
    downloaded an rpm and then i don't know what...maybe you read a how-to
    somewhere and used the rpm command, in a terminal ?? if so: CAUTION the
    internet has a LONG memory, you may have found a how-to written for
    Mandrake Linux (now closed down) in late last century...which worked for
    _that_ distro, then....but doesn't work now for any distro...so, when
    looking for how-to when running openSUSE, avoid old info...hey, even a
    how to for openSUSE 10.1 is probably not gonna work with openSUSE 12.1 !!

    *or* maybe you decided you didn't want the _already installed_ openJDK
    and you uninstalled that and downloaded and installed the SUN Java using
    the info at the SUN/Oracle Java site...is that what you did??

    well...i _think_ if the openJDK runtime and plug-in boxes are empty in
    YaST, and you single left click the box there will appear a green
    checkmark, meaning "Install"...so, click those two boxes to place a
    green check mark and then press the "Accept" button..

    _maybe_ that will install over whatever you installed and do it
    correctly...and, if so then you might see a pink rectangle at that java
    test page..

    yes, but if you were to run YaST Online Update you would have v 10, and
    when you run it on or after Feb 9, it will update to v 10..

    see, i asked you what Desktop Environment you are using, and i didn't
    get an answer...so, i assume you are using KDE4 (like me) and at the
    bottom of your screen (unless you customized it) is a panel with icons
    that do different things...and one of those near the bottom right pops
    up a message every once in a while saying you have updates...that is an
    application named Apper...i have no idea where it is or what it looks
    like on _your_ desktop...but, if you can find it, right click on it and
    select something like:
    -never install updates, or
    -never check for updates, or
    -disable checking for updates, or
    -disallow updates, or

    or something like that....now, if you have not updated since FF 7 was
    new, then it is possible that you have already murdered Apper, and if so
    GOOD for you....it is broken...use only YaST Software Management and
    YaST Online Update (or, zypper *if* you know how to use it correctly...)

    have you used zypper? do you know that "zypper dup", "zypper up" and
    "zypper patch" do three very different things and are *not*
    interchangeable and if used as if they are interchangeable then you will
    very likely have problems.

    ok, i see...if you use a "1-Click Install" button on a web page then you
    must _always_ pay attention because during the install you will be
    presented with the choice to either:

    1. allow the repo to remain connected to your system (enabled and
    refreshing) or

    2. not keep the repo.

    and you _must_ do one of two things, either select to not allow the repo
    to remain, *or* after the install go to YaST Software Repositories and
    disable and cease refreshing of the newly added repo....keeping it so if
    you later decided you need something from that repo you can just enable
    and refresh it.....*or* you can delete the repo..

    the rule to keep you stable is four repos (until you have enough
    experience to fix the mess you cause by more)

    ok....but, i _think_ you might be able to get a working java just by
    installing it as described above..


    > *But the problem still persists.*


    not suprising, given the status of the current java install..

    oh, if you _need_ SUN java, then that is a different thing...do you?
    if you do then it is best to uninstall the openJDK first and then
    install the SUN....there are instructions on exactly how to do that for
    12.1 in these forums...NOTE: instructions for 11.4 and earlier are NOT
    correct for 12.1.....ask for help before proceeding if you know you need
    SUN Java..

    recommendation: try to install openJDK as outlined above, maybe it works
    maybe not...if not, then maybe after running the Online Update it will..

    if not, post again..

    a mistake some folks make is they start with (say) Ubuntu and then maybe
    go to (say) Fedora and keep their home, and then maybe come here and
    keep thier hom, and then they have a /home directory with configure
    files written by and for Ubuntu, Fedora and openSUSE all jumbled up in
    their home..

    or, they (say) learned how to "sudo apt get" or "yum something" in one
    distro and think (when they get here) that "sudo zypper up" looks close
    enough that it ought to work......and, i might do something....but that
    something might not result in a _correct_ install..

    so, what i'm saying is: if you have experience in Windows then most of
    what you learned there will kill your openSUSE, and if you have
    experience in Ubuntu/Mint/Kbuntu/Debian a lot of stuff you learned there
    will murder your openSUSE..

    do not use how-tos from just where ever you find them....now, i used a
    ubuntu how-to last week and it worked...but, i have a recent system
    backup and i made a BACKUP of the affected files prior just prior to
    editing a config, and i was ready in case it hosed my system...doing
    anything else is a gamble...
