install java-1.7.0-icedtea-plugin per default
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:01:20 EST
Description of problem:
See bug 403861 comment 4 -- could we get java*icedtea-plugin whenever we have
firefox installed, please?
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install Fedora and select group containing firefox
Java applets don't work and we are not able to install well java out of the web
Java applet should just work
Thomas - opinions?
The plugin is installed by default in a Fedora 8 install. Here's the relevant
section of comps-f8.xml.in:
<_description>Support for running programs written in the Java programming
We tested this during the Fedora 8 cycle to be sure the plugin was installed by
default. We didn't test the Live Media installation scenario though. Do Live
Media spins use the same comps.xml?
Same comps file, but we don't install the java group due to space constraints.
If we want to add it, we have to find a corresponding amount of stuff to remove.
IMO, what email@example.com means, is install RPM of java-1.7.0-icedtea-plugin,
don't install by itself Java Plugin in firefox ,
Instead we have a README file.
IMHO , it should install automatically
java-1.6.0-openjdk-plugin and java-1.6.0-openjdk are installed by default on the
Fedora 9 DVD. I wish the same were true for the LiveCD since I consider the
Java plugin an important component of a base desktop system.
Only those two packages would be needed -- 30MB in total. Where is the list of
LiveCD groups that do get installed? I'd like to find some corresponding stuff
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
LiveCD kickstart configs can be grabbed from livecd-tools git
git clone git://git.fedorahosted.org/git/livecd
And then see under configs/. I really don't see anything obvious that could be
removed to be able to add another 30 megs of stuff though
Can't fix without a decision on what to remove from the Live Media in favour of icedtea. Please reopen if you see something eligible for deletion worth at least 30M in the kickstarts at
