Kubuntu: Firefox and Java Plugin

I was trying to open a mobile emulator, which was in fact a JAVA applet, and I found that JAVA plugin wasn’t installed. Following the link from Firefox add-ons website I was redirected to Sun website to downlaod JAVA runtime files.

It was about 19 MB file, after downloading and running it, I couldn’t see JAVA plugin in the installed plugin list, Googling the issue, I found that I have to symlink the plugin file into Firefox plugins directory (not copying it). After try-and -error-ing, the directory turned out to be:

/usr/lib/firefox-3.5.4/plugins

Now it is running 😉

Distro: Linux Kubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala)
