Java not working on Firefox 3.0.4 in Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex?

Well it was just nagging me, and for anyone who runs into this problem here’s the solution (to the ever moving Firefox path problem)

cd /usr/lib/firefox-3.0.4/plugins

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so

Assuming you already had the sun-java packages (anyway if not just get it).

  1. i installed jre n jdk using command…
    sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-jdk sun-java6-plugin
    on firefox 3.0.4 on ubuntu 8.10
    corrected path problem too…
    ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-1.6.0.10/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/
    ……….BUT STILL FIREFOX SAYS……JRE IS NOT INSTALLED

  2. /usr/lib/firefox-3.0.4/plugins/

    Ah yes, you didn’t catch the exact path which is the trick 🙂
    It is /usr/lib/firefox-3.0.4/plugins/ NOT /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/
