where is my plugins folder on a Suse 11.4 installation
I am having a very difficult time getting java installed in a Suse 11.4 installation of Firefox 5. This is a 64 bit system. I have used or created a "plugins" folder in the following locations: ~/.mozilla/plugins ~/.mozilla/firefox/plugins /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins /usr/lib64/firefox/plugins
into each of these folders I've added a symbolic link to /usr/lib64/jvm/java-1.6.0-sun-1.6.0/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so
what is the proper folder into which the plugin link should go? what is the true plugins folder so that all users of firefox can have a working java plugin?
Do you have this folder: /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins ?
If you have a 32 bit Firefox version then you need to place the links in a location for 32 bit files.
What is the location of the Flash plugin?
You can see the installed plugins on the about:plugins page.
You can set the pref plugin.expose_full_path to true on the about:config page to see the full path of plugins on the about:plugins page.
It is best not to leave that pref set to true as it exposes that full path to web servers, so reset that pref to false after you are done with the about:plugins page.
To open the about:config page, type about:config in the location (address) bar and press the "Enter" key, just like you type the url of a website to open a website.
If you see a warning then you can confirm that you want to access that page.
- Use the Filter bar at to top of the about:config page to locate a preference more easily.
- Preferences that have been modified show as bold(user set).
- Preferences can be reset to the default or changed via the right-click context menu.
Frustrating. Today, my JAVA plugin is available and enabled. I haven't changed anything!!!
After I exposed the plugin path, I see that the plugins are installed in a completely unexpected location: /usr/lib64/browser-plugins
Is this path set by Mozilla/Firefox? It would be nice if Mozilla/Firefox picked a location and stuck with it.
But still this doesn't answer my question. I know the above path is a TARGET of a symbolic link. But I don't know which of the symbolic links that I created (see my original question) is the one pointing to the above path. I will have to delete them one by one and login/logout (reboot?) in order to determine which symbolic link is the proper one.

OK. Found/fixed the problem (aside from find out out where to place the links).
I installed IcedTea package as the JAVA plugin. But, the JAVA IcedTea plugin has a bug and has several broken sym links itself.
Once I ran "firefox -g", I was able to get more information on which links were broken. Once they were fixed, I was able to run JAVA applications as expected.
