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 The instructions are a bit outdated, so I’m reposting.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 mv libjavaplugin.so libjavaplugin.so.bak ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-184.108.40.206/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so libjavaplugin.so
You’ll also need to restart Firefox for the changes to take effect.
