Mozilla searches for plug-ins in the following locations of Red Hat Linux 8:
- The path pointed to by environment variable
- Your Mozilla plugins directory, e.g.
If you install a plug-in without root permissions, use ~/.mozilla/plugins instead of the plugins sub-directory of the Mozilla install directory. You may have to create this directory first.
For a list of plug-ins supported by Mozilla and how to install them, visit http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/linux.html
To run Java applets, you must install the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version 1.4.1 or later (1.4.2 recommended). To enable Java for Mozilla, put a symlink in your Mozilla plugins directory, e.g.:ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_<version>/plugin/i386/
Copying the file (instead of making a symlink) will cause Java to crash.
If you need to download the JRE, you can find it at: http://java.sun.com/j2se/downloads.html
