Java on Swiftfox 3.5beta

0.1. Check if Java is installed. In a console type:

which java

0.2. If it is, check if Java is included on swiftfox as a plugin. In Swiftfox location bar type:


1. install java and swiftfox:

sudo aptitude install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin sun-java6-fonts swiftfox-prescott

the sun-java6-plugin contains the plugins required for Firefox,
check for the plugin as in 0.2
but if Java in Swiftfox is still not including it by default, go to 2

2. link the plugin to swiftfox as such:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun- /usr/lib/swiftfox/plugins/

this will differ according to the location and version of the java installed so, check first.

3. Startup Swiftfox, you will need to confirm your installation (0.2 above) or check it manually: go somewhere that requires java. Yahoo Pool is one of those..
