Thread: running java in Mozilla

    running java in Mozilla

    Hi i'm testing out java with Mozilla and i wanted to use the java irc applet on linuxjunior. Turns out i guess Mozilla doesn't know where to find my java files for a x-java-vm application. What should I put into the helper application fields to get Mozilla to use those types of files??? Is the extension a .jar?

    u have to symlink the java plugin to your mozilla plugins directory

    the easiest way is like this:

    cd ~./mozilla/plugins
    ln -s /path/to/javaplugin.so .

    u have to symlink it, copying won't work
    and as for adding it to ~/.mozilla/plugins instead of wherever u installed mozilla... this way the plugin is still installed when u upgrade ur mozilla

    well i didn't have a plugins directory in my home mozilla directory. So i linked it to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. Still no dice when it comes to getting the chat to initialize.

    Here's how I got the java-plugin for Mozilla: I ran Mozilla as root and went to http://www.linuxjunior.org/irc/chat.shtml. Mozilla prompted me for the plugin and I let it download and intall from the Netscape server. After it was done, closed Mozilla and ran it as a user and everything was honky-dory.

    Did you install the Java plugin through your browser?.

    The plugin filename is

    libjavaplugin_oji.so

    Look for that file on your system. If you can't find it, try running Mozilla as root from a command line and then installing the plugin through your browser. Should work fine then.

    How would one install a pluging via a browser? The helper applications section?

    It should automatically prompt you for installing the plugin when you go to a web page that has a java applet.

    just create the ~/.mozilla/plugins directory yourself, then symlink the plugin in there and restart mozilla. then type "aboutlugins" in your address bar. a whole bunch of java stuff should be listed there now
