Re: Installing java plugin in Mozilla?

I've successfully installed "ibm-java2-sdk-50-linux-ppc.tgz" a long time ago 
and it's got a java browser plugin, but it's still a bit buggy because some 
applets fail.

That's what I did to make the plugin work on my computer (after installing 

1) I made a sym link from 
/opt/ibm-java2-ppc-50/jre/bin/libjavaplugin_oji.so to 
and  /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so

2) Then, I executed:

# update-alternatives --config java

and chose /opt/ibm-java2-ppc-50/bin/java

It works if I use Konqueror, Mozilla and Firefox, but it doesn't if I use 

You can try to make theese steps, close the browser, and open it again to make 
it rescan de plugins and go to the java test page 
(http://www.java.com/en/download/help/testvm.xml) to check if it works.
