Installing missing java plugin for firefox in linux

Sometime firefox cann’t automatically install the missing java plugins.In that case u have to do manual installation.

First download the missing installer something like jre-6u3-linux-i586.bin file.Then run it as follows

./ jre-6u3-linux-i586.bin

Now open a new tab in your firefox and there type

about:config

and in Filter tab type    java

Then check for following options are valid or not.

java.default_java_location_others /usr/local/jdk

java.java_plugin_library_name libjavaplugin_oji.so

And finally make a soft link as follows

ln -s /usr/local/jdk/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so

thats it!Now restart your firefox.
