BT5r3 Fresh install from the ISO to a VM with 40g of drive space. Everything else is working fine. The only things I have updated was
Nessus "plus registered it without issue"
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686 on x86_64; rv:15.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/15.0.1
removed the icedtea6 stuff (didn't seem to work when it was there and a few sites said remove it)
I followed the instructions from this link
changing the 1.7.0_05 to 1.7.0_07 in the paths
root@bt:~# java -version
java version "1.7.0_07"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_07-b10)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.3-b01, mixed mode)
in my printenv I have
When running the plugin symbolic link command I ran the below command, done within the mozilla/plugins directory (and because java is x64 there is no i386 given in the example, only amd64
ln -sf /opt/java/jre1.7.0_07/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
in my usr/lib/mozilla/plugins I have
libnpjp2.so (nothing else in this directory)
When this didn't work I deleted the symlink and even tried just copying the file to the plugin's directory, still didn't work
(all this copying, creating of links etc... was done without firefox running)
But the Java plugin still does not work. I have read a number of online articles but nothing. When I do a
http://www.java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp (it says "Something is wrong, Java is not working")
When I run
aboutlugins it says
No enabled plugins found
when I goto the below website it says "Browser has Java disabled"
added these lines to my .profile and etc/profile (as per another suggestion from a website)
AFTER ALL OF THIS THE JAVA PLUGIN STILL DOES NOT WORK, so NESSUS WON"T WORK PROPERLY.
I can't understand why so many people are having a problem with this issue and why it seems so difficult to get it working
ANY IDEAS ??
