Java plugin (Firefox) on MEPIS


I found this link useful. It helped me to get Java running in Firefox. The instructions are a bit outdated, so I’m reposting.

First we need Java:

apt-get install sun-java6-plugin

Go to the Firefox “plugins” folder, and rename for the existing (not working!) plugin with a .bak file extension (or whatever you prefer), then create a symlink like so:

cd /usr/lib/firefox/plugins
ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-

You’ll also need to restart Firefox for the changes to take effect.
