OPera: Unable to use Java (fwd)
Here's the content of a discussion with Opera about using the Java plugin
in the PPC version of Opera. Two things:
1) This person doesn't know when the PPC Linux version of Opera 6 will
2) OPera only supports the Netscape 4 plugin interface. Blackdown's Java
only comes with Netscape 6 and Mozilla. Is this a problem? Am I missing
something to get a Netscape 4 plugin interface for Java?

I am not sure, but Opera 6.0 will probably be ported when it goes final, if not sooner. No release date is available, though.
You are using Opera 5.0. I don't know why your profile says 5.12 - it does not detect this manually, so you must have set it to 5.12 at some point..?

No, we only support the Netscape 4 plugin interface...
