    Default Java Plugin Firefox 4.0.1 x64

    I have tried multiple routes of trying to get firefox 4.0.1 in bt5 x64 gnome to get a working java plugin to work. Wanted to check in if anyone else had tried anything.

    Attempts:


    All of these, i copied the .so file from the plugin folder to /root/.mozilla/plugins. I have confirmed that is a valid folder for plugins, as my flash plugin works from there.

    Now I did note on this page: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/blocklist/ that java seems to be blocked. So is this all futile?!

    No problems here i don't think with KDE 64 to report.
    Im not sure why it wouldn't in gnome 64.
    Go to to tools add-on in fire-fox search quickjava or go-to and see if it helps.

    I found success by downloading the 32 bit self extracting file from the sun java website, installing and creating sym links. The reason for 32 bit is because you're still running a 32 bit browser inside of a 64 bit OS.

    I downloaded: Linux (self-extracting file) filesize: 20.6 MB from http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp
    Code:
    chmod +x jre-6u26-linux-i586.bin
    ./jre-6u26-linux-i586.bin
    cd jre1.6.0_26
    cd plugin
    cd i386
    cd ns7
    cp libjavaplugin_oji.so /root/.mozilla/plugins
    firefox
    java is not listed in the extensions list. kill firefox
    Code:
    cd ..
    cd ns7-gcc29
    cp libjavaplugin_oji.so /root/.mozilla/plugins
    firefox
    java is not listed in the extensions list.


    Anything you did differently?

    I couldn't find the original link but this is what I did to get the Java plugin working.

    Code:
    mkdir /root/Downloads
    Downloaded the latest java http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp self-extracting file

    Code:
    mkdir /opt/java
    cd /opt/java
    sh /root/Download/<filename.bin>
    update-alternatives –install “/usr/bin/java” “java” “/opt/java/jre1.6.0_21/bin/java” 1
    update-alternatives  --set /opt/java/jre1.6.0_21/bin/java
    ln –s /opt/java/jre1.6.0_21/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so /usr/lib/Mozilla/plugins/
    export JAVA_HOME=”/opt/java/jre1.6.0_21/bin/java”
    java –version
    Then open firefox and enter aboutlugins to see if java is listed.

    Worked for me with *slight* edits. Thank you very much!

    Code:
    mkdir /opt/java
    cd /opt/java
    ./root/Download/<filename.bin>
    mv /root/Download/jre1.6.0_21 /opt/java
    update-alternatives -–install “/usr/bin/java” “java” “/opt/java/jre1.6.0_21/bin/java” 1
    update-alternatives --set java /opt/java/jre1.6.0_21/bin/java
    ln –s /opt/java/jre1.6.0_21/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so /usr/lib/Mozilla/plugins/
    export JAVA_HOME=”/opt/java/jre1.6.0_21/bin/java”
    java –version
