"Java" plugin not picked up because of missing link
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:42 EST
Description of problem:
The "Java" plugin does not get picked up by web browsers ("epiphany")
because no symbolic link from "/usr/lib/gcj-4.1.1/libgcjwebplugin.so"
to "/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins" exists.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch "epiphany".
2. Go to a "Java" animated web page.
The "Java" plugin is reported to be missing.
The "Java" applet should be executed by the plugin.
After creating the symbolic link mentioned above, "Java" functionality
is recovered. Until some days ago, "java-1.4.2-gcj-compat-plugin"
ensured the creation of the missing link but has been dropped since
then. Maybe creating this link should go now into the post-install
section of "libgcj"?
