How to install the Java plugin on Fedora 15 64 bits

Posted by on Tuesday, 4 October, 2011

I’ve found these instructions here:

1. Download the Linux 64 bit rpm from java.com. Ignore the instructions to download the 32-bit version.

2. Follow the instructions on java.com for how to install JRE

3. Exit firefox

4. Make a link to the plugin:
cd /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins
ln -s /usr/java/jre1.6.0_25/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so

5. Restart firefox and return to java.com to test
