    Thumbs up Accessing Proxmox GUI on FireFox in Ubuntu Client - Java Fixes

    Installed FireFox v3.6.13 on a PC running a fresh Ubuntu 10.10 desktop.
    Tried top access the ProxMox 1.7 GUI - basic HTML pages were okay. Tried to use the Console view for a Virtual machine on it. A popup was successful but blank. It appeared that Java was not installed and the new Java plugin is named IcedTea!

    Steps to correct the situation if FireFox was installed thru the Ubuntu Software Center:
    Close all firefox
    FireFox v3.6.13 is installed in /usr/lib/firefox-3.6.13

    Java Download Page:
    http://www.java.com/en/download/linux_manual.jsp

    Linux (self-extracting file) filesize: 20.2 MB

    Instructions
    http://www.java.com/en/download/help/linux_install.xml

    sudo mkdir /usr/lib/java
    cd /usr/lib/java
    sudo wget -O jre-6u22-linux-i586.bin http://javadl.sun.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=42723
    sudo chmod a+x jre-6u22-linux-i586.bin
    sudo ./jre-6u22-linux-i586.bin
    
    cd /usr/lib/firefox-3.6.13/plugins
    sudo ln -s /usr/lib/java/jre1.6.0_22/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so
    
    cd /usr/lib/firefox-3.6.13/extensions
    sudo unzip /usr/lib/java/jre1.6.0_22/lib/deploy/ffjcext.zip
    Start the Firefox browser
    Get the following Add-on:
    IcedTea NPR Web Browser Plugin (using IcedTea6 1.9.2 (6b20-1.9.2-0Ubuntu1))

    In Firefox, type aboutlugins in the Location bar to confirm that the Java Plugin is loaded.
    (Tools -> Add-ons -> plugins)

    Hi,
    you have downloaded the Sun (oracle) java but your browser use icedtea... at my firefox the plugin named Java (tm) Plug-in 1.6.0_20 - in your version there should something with 1.6.x_22
    you must install the sun-plugin.

    Have you tried "apt-get install sun-java6-plugin"??

    It does not install even without OpenJDK.

    Error:
    sun-java6-plugin is referred to by another package (?) and is not an installation candidate!

    1. Open Synaptic. Go to Settings under Other software Tab select Partner repo. Click OK and then refresh button (or type sudo apt-get update).

    2. Open Terminal and type: sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin

    Hope this help.
