I didn't have Java installed, but saw this thread and this post (thanks
nate) that made it look so easy, so I gave it a try.

It worked for me (both galeon and phoenix), but I had to do one more
thing in order for it to work.  My system did not have the package


I noticed that I needed this when I started up galeon from a console.
It gave a message that it was trying to load the java plugin but failed
because the plugin couldn't find the file

[libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file
or directory]

So I went to http://packages.debian.org and searched for packages
containing libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2.  It returned the package name for
me, I installed it, and presto - java works.
