    JRE and firefox problem

    Hello,
    I wanted to play chess on yahoo. At launch, it asks me to install JRE.I installed Java (OpenSource), but still the same message. So I installed the java plugin 1.4 for Firefox, always the same message. Is there a solution? Any hekp will be appreciated. Thank you.

    Hello,
    If the normal installation is not working then install it from the site Java.com (self extracting). Have you tried to install sun-java6-plugin? It is what is installed on my laptop and java works fine.
    Code:
    "Sudo apt-get install sun-java6-plugin"
    This will install all needed packages.

    In root console, I typed
    Code:
    cd / usr / java
    Then I followed the instructions at java.com, I changed the permission of the file I downloaded to make it executable. Enter:
    Code:
    chmod a + x jre-1_5_0_10-linux-i586-rpm.bin
    I started the installation process. I typed:
    Code:
    ./jre-1_5_0_10-linux-i586-rpm.bin
    Then the license agreement appeared, I validated by "yes". Then I run the RPM command at the terminal to install packages. Enter:
    Code:
    rpm-iv jre-1_5_0_10-linux-i586.rpm
    But still this is not working for me.

    Apparently you have installed the rpm, but did you do this step:
    Code:
    ln-s / usr/java/jre1.5.0_06/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so / usr / lib / firefox / plugins
    It is to tell Firefox where you have installed java so it can be used as plugins. Careful to change depending on your version of java and your installation directory of firefox, do not forget to check that java is enabled in your Firefox: Edit> Preferences. Under the Content category, select Enable Java.

    See if this helps you java console doesn't open from Firefox 3 with jre 6u10

    Ok, navigates konqueror to verify that your path
    Code:
    "/ Usr / bin / mozilla-firefox / firefox / plugins"
    is correct (it exists). change your line accordingly
    Code:
    "Ln-s / usr/java/jre1.5.0_10/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so / usr / bin / mozilla-firefox / firefox / plugins"
    you're very close to the end, it surely will work
    Code:
    "/ usr / bin / mozilla-firefox / plugins"
    but check well in konqueror

    I typed where is firefox
    and I get:
    Code:
    firefox: / usr / bin / firefox / etc / firefox.cfg
    Note, I had already typed "which mozilla-firefox" in order to know where this software (/ usr / bin / mozilla-firefox)

    Re: JRE and firefox problem

    In fact in / usr / bin / firefox is not installed there ... but normally it's an alias (or shortcut) to your software. In this way it is accessible from anywhere and from any other software, you know where your firefox is really installed by one:
    Code:
    file / usr / bin / firefox
