I don’t know how much of it its really needed, but I install the whole Sun’s Java 6 packages,
$ sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk sun-java-6-jre sun-java6-pluging sun-java6-source sun-java6-bin
For sure you’ll need the jdk and plugin one… If your internet connection is slow you might try installing these two first and try the above command.
Configuration of Java for Mozilla.
For enable Java plugin on Firefox 3.6,
$ sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin.so \ mozilla-javaplugin.so /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so 50
Now it’s time to restart your browser.
For checking that the plugin is enabled, open your Firefox browser and type
in the address line, there must be the Java application enabled.
After doing the above steps, I realize that got a bonus…
- The Java Plugin was enabled also for conkeror browser.
- Since I use Firefox as the browser for Sage(math), the 3D plots are visible now.
