Ubuntu Feisty: Firefox Java woes

So you have java already installed but firefox still can't detect the java plugin...

$ sudo ln -sf <jre_path >/plugin/i386/mozilla/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/plugins/libjavaplugin.so


$ sudo ln -sf <jre_path >/plugin/i386/mozilla/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin.so


replace <jre_path > with your jre path (without the angular brackets)
eg./usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.6.0_03/jre

Can't seem to locate your jre path ? simply type :

$ locate jre
