Default java plugin

I have sun-java6-plugin installed (and thus also sun-java6-jre and
sun-java6-bin) but the java plugin does not appear in iceweasel's
aboutlugins (and so java applets no longer work).

Running Sid; this problem seems to be fairly new. Any other Sid
users experience this?

Regards, Jan

Have you done as instructed at plugindoc.mozdev.org?

Namely;

1. Install Java Runtime Environment.
2. Make a symbolic link to libjavaplugin_oji.so in your Mozilla
Plugins directory. Use the copy located in the plugin/i386/ns7
directory of JRE 5.0 or later, or plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32 if you are
using JRE 1.4.2.

The file you link to is
in /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-1.6.0.07/jre/plugin/i386/ns7 on my system.

Thanks!

I *think* that has already been done by apt-get. The only
difference seems to be that you have java-6-sun-1.6.0.07 while I
have java-6-sun-1.6.0.10.

I have the following symbolic links:

-/usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins has
libjavaplugin.so -> /etc/alternatives/iceweasel-javaplugin.so
-/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins has
libjavaplugin.so -> /etc/alternatives/mozilla-javaplugin.so
-/etc/alternatives has
iceweasel-javaplugin.so -> /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/plugin/
i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
mozilla-javaplugin.so -> /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/plugin/
i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
- /usr/lib/jvm has
java-6-sun -> java-6-sun-1.6.0.10

and finally, /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-1.6.0.10/jre/plugin/i386/ns7
has the file libjavaplugin_oji.so, perms -rwxr-xr-x, owned by
root, size 137021 bytes.

That seems OK to me. For good measure, I downgraded from the Sid
to the Lenny version -- i.e. from 1.6.0.10 to 1.6.0/07. But this
didn't help .. it is mysterious.

One thing: when re-installing (i.e. downgrading) sun-java there
was a warning:

update-binfmts: warning: current package is openjdk-6, but binary
format already installed by sun-java6

I don't know what this means. I have openjdk installed because it
was pulled in by the azureus package.

Regards, Jan

You're welcome.

Ah, I see was insufficiently explicit, sorry. The link is made in
~/.mozilla/plugins/ rather than the links already created by the
installation of the .deb package.

I've not seen such a warning, not haiving both packages installed, so
can't really help there, sorry.
