Description Bob Miller 2001-05-23 15:35:23 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686)

Description of problem:
After loading plugins like Java and restarting Mozilla, Mozilla still only
recognizes the default plugin. Have tried storing plugins both globally
(/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins) and per user. Did NOT have this problem with RH

Netscape 4.77 continues to work fine.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start Mozilla	
2.Go to a page that requires a plugin
3.Download plugin, receive, for example "Java plugin successful"
4. Restart Mozilla
5. Mozilla load only the default plugin

I had the same problem.  I'm using the mozilla-0.9 rpms and the jdk-1.3.1 rpm
from sun.  The fix that worked for me was to make the following symlink

ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/libXt.so.6 /usr/X11R6/lib/libXt.so

After that, mozilla picked up the java and flash plugins (flash seems to depend
on the java plugin because of the .class file I guess.)

Comment 2 James Cook 2001-06-01 15:37:34 UTC
Oh, you do have to run ldconfig for the change to take effect.  :)

Comment 3 Bob Miller 2001-06-05 13:49:55 UTC
Did as stated above. Java seems to work fine. However, any web page that uses
Flash causes the program to crash (e.g., weather.com).

Java 1.3.0_01
Shockware 5.0r47
KDE 2.1.1

Comment 4 Christopher Blizzard 2001-06-09 22:12:14 UTC
This should be fixed in 0.9.1 since we load the Xt libraries now.  Should be in
rawhide shortly.
