Install Firefox Java Plugin on Linux


about-plugins

This is silly but not super obvious and not easy to find on the interweb thingie searches come up with Oracle’s solution about linking the libjavaplugin_oji lib in the Mozilla plugins dir:

<Java installation directory>/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so

which does not work for me. The way to get this going is to create a link to the libnpjp2 library in the Mozilla plugin directory as follows:

ln -s /<Java installation directory>/jre/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
