    Cannot get Java browser plugin to work (Fedora 16, Firefox)

    Hi everyone!

    My first post so please be gentle.

    I've been trying for a while now to get the Java browser plugin to work under Fedora, without much success. The issue itself is fairly simple so to brief it out:

    - Getting blank box where system description should go when visiting http://www.java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp to test Java browser functionaltiy
    - Got java-1.6.0-openjdk-1.6.0.0-67.1.11.3.fc16.x86_64 installed (yum confirms latest version)
    - Got icedtea-web-1.2-1.fc16.x86_64 installed (yum confirms latest version)
    - Have enabled logging and debugging in IcedTea console however ~/.icedtea/log/ remains empty
    - Firefox version is firefox-14.0.1-1.fc16.x86_64

    So basically, it's stubbornly neither working nor error-logging - would be most appreciative if someone could lend a helping hand!

    Regards,

    SuaSwe

    Never mind, found another post and its suggestion worked, e.g.:

    [root@pc ~]# ln -s /usr/java/jre1.7.0_05/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so /home/eniklasson/.mozilla/plugins/
    [root@pc ~]#

    Woohoo!
