Default sun-java6-plugin on amd64

I can't seem to get the Java6 plugin working on my 64-bit
testing/unstable system. I have the following installed:

sun-java6-bin install
sun-java6-jre install
sun-java6-plugin install

The Sun JVM seems to be the system default:

$ update-alternatives --display java
java - manual mode
link currently points to /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/bin/java
/usr/bin/gij-4.2 - priority 42
/usr/bin/gij-4.3 - priority 43
/usr/bin/gij-4.4 - priority 1044
/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/jre/bin/java - priority 1061
slave java.1.gz: /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/jre/man/man1/java.1.gz
/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/bin/java - priority 63
slave java.1.gz: /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/man/man1/java.1.gz
/usr/lib/jvm/java-gcj/jre/bin/java - priority 1043
slave java.1.gz: /usr/lib/jvm/java-gcj/man/man1/java.1.gz
Current `best' version is /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/jre/bin/java.

and yet Iceweasel steadfastly refuses to acknowledge the java6 plugin in
aboutlugins. Has anyone actually gotten the 64-bit java6 plugin to
work, and if so, what is the missing incantation?

alex, your current one isn't pointing to sun's.. note the "gcj" in the
plugin name means it isn't from sun..
todd, try to confirm if you have similarly what alex has, but of course
make sure your link is about the javaplugin..


as a quick test, you can use in the url box-> "aboutlugins"

Hi,

Squeeze amd64 up to date :

update-alternatives --display iceweasel-javaplugin.so
iceweasel-javaplugin.so - automatic mode
link currently points to /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so
/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so - priorité 63
Current `best' version is
/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so.

and aboutlugins reports the right plugin.

It's :
apt-cache policy sun-java6-plugin
sun-java6-plugin:
Installé : 6-16-1
Candidat : 6-16-1

I use Sid's iceweasel :

apt-cache policy iceweasel
iceweasel:
Installé : 3.5.4-1
Candidat : 3.5.4-1


But everything is not shinny, when I try the Sun java testing applet I
end up with a very badly corrupted screen, killing Iceweasel isn't
enough to recover, I have to log out my session (it doesn't crash kde4).
I just found out about it following your post, didn't look into it yet...

As stated in update-alternatives output it's in "automatic" mode, I
don't remember doing anything special to get it to work.

Have fun.

Hi, i've a similar problem.
Where did you find that 'iceweasel-javaplugin.so' ??
iceweasel:
Installed: 3.0.14-1
sun-java6-plugin:
Installed: 6-16-1
There is no alternatives for iceweasel-javaplugin.so.
best regards

Well, there is here, as well as iceape-javaplugin.so,
xulrunner-javaplugin.so and even a xulrunner-1.9-javaplugin.so .

I used to have the Icedtea plugin installed, so maybe the alternative
was created back then. I am 100% sure that I did not create this myself
;-) ...

Did you try

?
Otherwise, see what is available in /etc/alternatives:

Yes... it's there, but do not help.
I installed firefox-3.6beta and all works. So is the problem with
iceweasel ?
