I'm hoping you guys can help me with a problem.
I've not been able to get the Java Plugin for Linux in Firefox. It keeps saying that it successfully installs, but the next time I browse to a page that uses a Java applet, it prompts me to install the plugin.
I've also used apt-get to install the j2re package. Anyone have any ideas what else I can do to get Java working?
Which Java are you installing, and where are you installing it from?
You'll need a 1.4 java, definitely, easiest way is to download it from Sun. The way to "install" it is to make a symlink to the appropirate "libjavaplugin_oji.so" from your java install into the "plugins" directory for firefox.
