Though I used the defaults, my installation for Java seems to be a bit different than one’s I have seen on the web while I was researching this issue. Here is my path:
I found an article that closely described the fix (click here). You need to create a symbolic link that looks something like this:
ln -s /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_24/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so
,,,AND… this needs to be in the correct folder. So for my instance (64bit), this symbolic link needed to be created in the following folder:
So, to put it all together, it should go something like this:
[root@Dave ~]# cd /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins [root@Dave plugins]# ln -s /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_24/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so [root@Dave plugins]# ls libflashplayer.so libtotem-gmp-plugin.so libnpjp2.so libtotem-mully-plugin.so librhythmbox-itms-detection-plugin.so libtotem-narrowspace-plugin.so libtotem-cone-plugin.so [root@Dave plugins]#
I then refreshed my browser and the applets started flowing.
See how easy that was?
