Re: FC8/IcedTea Java Plugin/FireFox/R



OK folks. Here is what I did to get the R java search applet working.

Note that this is on 32 bit F8, not 64 bit. Make any appropriate
adjustments as required.

1. Remove Iced Tea 
  
   sudo yum remove java-1.7.0-icedtea-*


2. Go to the java.sun.com web site and secure the appropriate JRE
download. In my case, it was:

   jre-6u3-linux-i586-rpm.bin


3.  Set the above to be executable:

   chmod +x jre-6u3-linux-i586-rpm.bin


4. Run and install the above as root:

   sudo ./jre-6u3-linux-i586-rpm.bin


5. Create the symlink to the JRE plugin:

   cd ~/.mozilla/plugins
   ln -s /usr/java/jre1.6.0_03/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so


6. Be sure that you have no Firefox sessions open. If you do, close them all.


7. In R, type

   help.start()


8. In the new Firefox session, click on the "Search Engine & Keywords" link


9. Pay attention to the lower left hand corner of the Firefox status
line. If all went well, you should see:

   Applet SearchEngine started

indicating that all should be well. Just to check, enter a keyword
(eg. 'plot') and hit the search button.

HTH.  It is working for me here.

Cheers,

Marc Schwartz
