I'm using openSUSE 10.3, kernel 2.6.22, Firefox 22.214.171.124, and java-1_5_0-sun-1.5.0_update13-0.5
I have a problem getting Java applets to run in my Firefox.
There is a symbolic link to the Java plugin for the Firefox browser located in /usr/lib/browser-plugins/javaplugin.so This links to /etc/alternatives/javaplugin which is a symbolic link to /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-sun-1.5.0_update13-sr2/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavap lugin_oji.so This plugin didn't work. Although about:plugins show that the Java installation is working for Firefox, visiting Java's page or any page with a Java applet does not work correctly.
So what I did was to create a link /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so to the same file as above. about:plugins again showed that the plugin is installed. Once again, I tried the applet in http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp but it is still not working.
I've googled for help but the results came back with making a symbolic link which I've already done.
Does anyone have any advice?
I had exactly the same problem. I solved it by removing the ~/.java directory.
