MJB: I cannot get JRE to run in my Ubuntu Hardy installation.

Posted

Installation of JRE has been verified. Sites that require JRE say it is not installed but all site tests confirm the installation. A technician in chat says it is installed properly as well but needs to be added to my profile. It was working properly a few days ago but some update changed a setting. I have also attempted to use Chromium as well with the same results. I know this is related to my installation but cannot find a consolidated set of instructions to complete the installation. I am a new linux user and am still learning. Assistance would be great.

Operating system

Ubuntu Hardy

Could you restart Firefox, then check to see if the Java plugin is listed in Tools->Add-Ons->Plugins? If it's there and disabled, enable it.

If it's still not listed, paste the output of ls -al /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins into a reply here.
