Date: Sat, 10 Apr 2004 1:07:39 EDT From: John Weber To: Dario Fernandez Subject: Mozilla and Java Hey, D. I got the java plugin to work on linux finally. Here's what I did: (1) Download a good version of the Java2 JRE. (Mostly this means that the JRE needs to be built with GCC 3.2). You can get it here: wget ftp://ftp.tux.org/pub/java/JDK-1.4.1/i386/01/j2re-1.4.1-01-linux-i586-gcc3.2.bin (2) Extract the binary: chmod a+x j2re-1.4.1-01-linux-i586-gcc3.2.bin ./j2re-1.4.1-01-linux-i586-gcc3.2.bin (3) Move the j2re-1.4.1 directory from your home directory to wherever you want it to reside. I put it in /usr/java/jre-1.4.1 mv j2re-1.4.1 /usr/java/jre-1.4.1 (4) Create a link from the plugins directory of your mozilla installation to the plugin inside /usr/java/jre-1.4.1: cd /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins ln -s /usr/java/jre-1.4.1/plugin/i386/mozilla/javaplugin_oji.so javaplugin_oji.so (5) Exit and restart mozilla.
