Re: java plugin lenny

This is what I've done with etch, I don't know if it'll work for lenny. Note that there are sarge and sid variants to try (but no lenny) in the sources.list.

After various frustrations with the latest Sun Java not having a plugin on AMD64, I just decided to go back to the blackdown java's older version that worked for me last year:

I put this in my /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb http://mirrors.ibiblio.org/pub/mirrors/blackdown/debian/ etch non-free
deb-src http://mirrors.ibiblio.org/pub/mirrors/blackdown/debian/ etch non-free

and then did

sudo apt-get  -f install j2re1.4 j2sdk1.4 j2sdk1.4-doc

and I've been much happier. Of course, if I was developing applets and wanted do do it with a current sun-java that's happily open-source and everything, this wouldn't be so good. But for viewing web java content, it's fine. And I still have the sun-java5-jre stuff installed, too.

I'm not saying this is the best or only solution, just another thing to consider.

Hello list,

Does anyone know if its possible to get java plugin working in
iceweasel, in lenny amd64 without installing a whole chroot?

In particular, does nspluginwrapper work with java? If so how do I go
about setting up the java plugin? It seems like I would have to
install the 32bit java plugin, then run something like nspluginwrapper
-i [path to .so plugin file]

But I can't install the 32 bit version of the java plugin,
sun-java6-plugin because apt-get refuses, because it's 32bit and my
system is 64bit. I tried the linux32 wrapper, but apt-get still won't
install sun-java6-plugin.

I have sun jre 64 installed.

[cabuz ~]>java -version
java version "1.6.0_03"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_03-b05)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 1.6.0_03-b05, mixed mode)

So how do I do this? Has anybody got nspluginwrapper working with java plugin?

Thanks for any suggestions.
