Hi everybody, Following the instructions from the Handbook, I tried to set up the Java plug-in in Firefox. After the JRE has been successfully installed, the plug-in didn't appear in the browser. While trying to add the link per instructions, I found that there's no such a file "libjavaplugin_oji.so"; the path "/usr/local/diablo-jre1.5.0/plugin/amd64/ns7" doesn't exist either. There's a "/usr/local/diablo-jre1.5.0" with bin, lib and man directories and lots of files in there, but there's no plugin directory. The installation of the plug-in doesn't look to be managed through the port settings. I had the same file set installed via both port and package - no plug-in file mentioned in the instructions. The page http://www.freebsdfoundation.org/downloads/java.shtml indicates that amd64 platform is supported. I tried simple Java programs started from the console, and it worked fine. So, my problem is why the plug-in doesn't appear to be installed along the JRE installation? Am I missing something or the plug-in isn't supported in amd64? Can anyone help me to fix this issue? It looks just strange, because everything found on Google was about proper linking to the plug-in file, but the file itself was always installed.
