I installed the IBM jre from SuSE and the current Netscape from the NS site.
After a few passes of YOU they began to work together automagically. I
believe I am getting partial java function from Opera, but most sites which
activate java are attempting to block Opera, even with the "IE 5.0" setting.
I chose the IBM jre for its reputed better performance, and it appears to
function well with NS.
Ihave Opera working on java by doing much as described by Fergus. Sometimes
an aplet will not display and the java console not that useful as it will
only display messages after it has been started and you can not start the
console until the aplet is loaded! A real "Catch 22" if I ever met one.

I got it going in Konqueror by dowloading the Sun j2re1.4 and following
the instructions kindly given by Ben Rosenberg a week or so ago on this

I then went into konq. settings, enabled the obvious, and fed it the
'path to java executable', in my case /usr/lib/j2re1.4.0/bin/java. There
are probably lots of other ways, but this one certainly led to succesful
applet viewing in Konq.

I did this because I saw Ben's notes, and thought 'Why not whizz it up?'
- but does anyone have a view about how safe / dangerous it is to cruise
around the net with java globally enabled? I never used to, but what's
the current orthodoxy on this?

For mozilla I could only install this as root. Give that a try.
