Using Firefox3 in ubuntu and can’t get Sun JRE working??

Right this was a bit of a doozy.

  1. sudo apt-get install sun-java6-plugin
  2. cd .mozilla/plugins/
  3. ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-1.6.0.06/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
  4. restart firefox

It still doesn’t work? Ok. Type the following into your address bar about:plugins – if you see anything in relation to icedtea, remove it:

  1. apt-get remove icedtea-gcjwebplugin
  2. restart firefox

You should now have a functional JRE installed in Firefox3. This has been bugging me for a while as I’ve a few apps that use a JRE that I’ve not been able to use for a while.
