    FireFox and Java Applets problem.....

    Okay..getting lazy here. For some reason I can't get java applets to work in Firefox. I have tried making the symlink as per the instructions on mozilla site. Javascript works well..but no applets.....any ideas anyone?

    Running SuSE 9.1 with latest 2.6.5 kernel. Have Sun Java 5 installed. Opera and Mozilla run Java fine. Firefox runs javscript..but no applets. Nota real big deal, but just one fo those things that is bugging me...hehehe :x

    Have you tried setting you MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH environment var in you .profile. If not add this to you .profile/.bashrc

    Code:
    export MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH="/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/"
    Or where ever you keep all your plugins. I keep tham all in one place so they are easy to maintain.

    Okay...the .bashrc statement didn't work. Think I have to check and see if there is another java package installed. I think it may be conflicting. I installed Sun 5 java a few days ago but I know that SuSe installs IBM java by default. I don't think I took it off after installing the Sun version. Will mess with it laters after a beer or two....thanks for the help!

    try running firefox from the command prompt [after you have that in your .bashrc]

    Code:
    source ~/.bashrc
    firefox

    You have to point you MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH to where you keep your plugins, don't just copy it verbatim.

    Lets back up, first can you even find the libjavaplugin_oji.so plugin? I unpacked java into the usr directory on my machine so here is where it is on my computer:

    Code:
    /usr/j2sdk/jre/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so
    You need to find that file and make a symlink to it in your plugins directory.

    It doesn't matter whats installed on you system, only what you use. I have 3 different version of Java on my machine, I just point to the different java binaries when I need a different version. Just curious, what is the output when you issue this command:

    Code:
    java -version
