Java plugin (Firefox) on MEPIS

I found this link useful. It helped me to get Java running in Firefox. The instructions are a bit outdated, so I thought to repost.

First we need Java installed:

apt-get install sun-java6-plugin

We go to the Firefox “plugins” folder, and rename for the existing (not working!) plugin with a .bak extension, and then create a symlink to the (hopefully working!) plugin:

cd /usr/lib/firefox/plugins
ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-

You’ll need to restart Firefox for the changes to take effect. Hope this helps!
