It seems that there is no way for me to install java plugin in firefox 3.6.
I’ve already read some threads about similar problems but none of the solutions that worked for other people work for me. So I decided to open a new thread.
Following instructions of other threads, I uninstalled all java packages and installed again just the three that you can see below, but nothing changed.
Glad if somebody can suggest something. Thanks.
I have installed jre-6u19-linux-i586.rpm on my openSUSE 11.2 x86_64 system. I am using Firefox 3.6.2 i586 because I want the 32 bit Adobe flash plugin to work better and it does. My problem is that I can’t get Firefox to find the symbolic link to the java plugin. I’ve installed it in ~/.mozilla/plugins ~/.mozilla/firefox/plugins (I created these directories) and /usr/lib/browser-plugins. Is there some plugin directory I’ve missed?
I hope that somebody who knows more than me answers your questions.
Meanwhile you can check whether the java plugin appears in the list of installed plugins that you get typing in Firefox “about:plugins” (without the quotes of course).
Did you installed the plugin from yast?
This was very helpful. As a test, I could not get the Clock Applet working.
I went to the this link got the new rpm. Installed, then went to yast and removed the icetea version, then, re-installed the sun version (giving the opportunity to agree to the license) and wallah, the clock applet is now working. Hopefully this will do it!
