Re: Installing java plugin in Mozilla?
Based on your feedback and another reply from Bigo, I'm convinced the
IBM plugin should work in Mozilla and also Firefox.
Now I am researching how to upgrade just the java-package from
testing. From what I've read so far, this is documented under
Keeping a Mixed System in the APT-HOWTO available on the
www.debian.org web site and probably also on your debian system. I
need the java-package from testing because it support the 1.5
version of the IBM java plugin.
Update /etc/apt/sources.list to make the contrib and non-free
deb http://my.favorite.mirror.org/debian stable main
deb http://my.favorite.mirror.org/debian testing contrib non-free
Into the /etc/apt/apt.conf file insert the following line:
APT::Default-Release stable #use the stable "version"
Now the documentation is a little confusing because the use of
"version" as one of: stable testing un-stable, and also as a dotted
version number like 0.27! So which syntax do I use?
# apt-get install needed-package=testing
# apt-get install needed-package=0.27
Another syntax may be using the -t option, but the parameter is now
# apt-get -t testing install needed-package

I've successfully installed "ibm-java2-sdk-50-linux-ppc.tgz" a long
and it's got a java browser plugin, but it's still a bit buggy
That's what I did to make the plugin work on my computer (after
1) I made a sym link from
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
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
