problem getting java to work with firefox in linux
Posted on 2010-11-16
I'm trying to get java plugin to work with firefox but it doesn't seem to be working.
I'm running CentOS 5.5 x64 (as root)
I download java 6 update 22 bin and extracted to /opt.
In ~/.mozilla/plugins i created symlink to /opt/jre1.6.0_22/lib/amd64/libjavaplugin_jni.so and restarted firefox. the plugins page doesn't show it and going to java site to verify only causes firefox to say plugin is missing and directs to the same java download page.
Just as a test, I deleted the jre folder under /opt, download the 32bit jre and extracted it there, created new symlink in plugins folder for the plugin file and firefox still doesn't show the plugin.
Shouldn't it work? Am i missing something?
