Hi,

I installed java plugin via 'yum install java-plugin' and firefox
still complains that plugin is not installed...
I'm running 32bit fedora (I saw previous mails regarding F7 on 64bit).
Just install the java-icedtea-plugin (just look for icedtea) from Fedora
and it will work just fine.

Otherwise, maybe you need to create a link to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
as well?
I'm running F8/x86_64 and haven't manually installed any Java stuff yet,
just whatever might have been installed by anaconda by default.  Up
until now I hadn't visited any web pages with Java on them.

A lot of people have been having problems with Java it seems, and so I
decided to try to get it to work myself.  I google searched for a "Java
test", went to the Sun page, and it just worked automatically already,
presumeably with iced-tea, which I assume was installed for me already
by anaconda.  I went to a variety of other Java websites to test it out
and have had no problems at all so far.  All Java sites work in firefox
for me automatically.

As mentioned above, I haven't had to install anything, configure
anything, or do anything manual for this to work, it just works out of
the box on x86_64, at least for me.

I can only assume that the people having the problems either:

1) Are coming from an upgrade of a previous OS release
or
2) Have Sun, IBM, or some other Java installed already, or are trying to
install some other Java
3) Have upgraded and didn't get iced-tea by default perhaps.

Anyhow, worst case scenario -> do a fresh OS install and Java seems to
work in firefox right out of the box.  ;o)

I only installed java-plugin, I already had java installed
out-of-the-box in this fresh Fedora 8 Gnome Live CD install.

I tested one java page prior to installing java-plugin and it said
that java wasn't installed, after instalation of java-plugin I now
tested it again with following pages:
http://www.javatester.org/
http://www.java.com/en/download/help/testvm.xml

and both say I don't have java plugin installed.

Any other ideas?


Repeating myself:

Run mozilla-plugin-config (once, as root)

Hans
