I had a similar problem with 10.1. Java applets used to be fine, but
stopped working, probably after an update, for Java 1.5 applets.

I fixed this (for firefox -- I haven't checked konqueror) by making sure
there was a libjavaplugin_oji.so in /usr/lib/firefox/plugins.
Specifically, since there was not already a pluging, I opened a console
and
# su
(root password)
# cd /usr/lib/firefox/plugins
# ln
-s /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-sun-1.5.0_10/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so

That fixes the problem. I had also tried update-alternatives, but this
had not fixed the firefox problem.
