    IcedTea-Web plugin -- file location???

    Hi -- sorry if this is a stupid question...

    [To support a legacy system] I am trying to use IcedTea-Web to provide java browser plugin (on an old version of Firefox).

    I have the IcedTea-Web package installed:

    > [bode@hydra ~]$ rpm -q --all | grep iced
    > icedtea-web-1.7.1-10.fc28.noarch

    The IcedTea documentation gives instructions for linking in the plugin (a file designated into the broswer:

    However no such file is among the files provided by the icedtea rpm:

    There must be something simple that I am missing. Is there some post-installation build step that I need to do to build the shared object file???

    Help me please...

    - Andy

    You can use rpm to list all the files in a package and their install location.
    rpm -ql icedtea-web
    However, install scripts may create symlinks and/or alternatives entries, especially for things like java, post install.
    rpm -q --scripts icedtea-web
    Or this,
    $ sudo dnf repoquery --requires icedtea-web

    /usr/sbin/alternatives  <== yeah, thought so
    chkconfig >= 1.7
