yum install says that java is installed. both my browsers say I need to install. How do I get them to shake hands?
I hate this spammers :S
Anyway... are you sure you installed java? What do you mean by "java"?
The JRE? the SDK? the ant compiler?
If it's indeed installed...have you tried rebooting?
Your browser might have an option to scan for new installed plugins...
doing yum install for java or jre I get
Package 1:java-1.6.0-openjdk-184.108.40.206-220.127.116.11.fc16.x86_64 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do
I'm using chrome if that gives a clue. I have tried with Firefox also. Both give the puzzle piece. That leads to the DL from java but if it is already installed...
I have SDK. I use Eclipse to compile. Eclipse shows the applet working but the applet will not open in html.
I so agree about spammers.
Yes, well I have the same problem on some sites with my 64-bit FF and Chrome. I think they are looking for 32-bit plugins, which I don't think work with the 64-bit browsers. Blame it on the web site developers... :-) You might have more luck running the 32-bit plugins with a 32-bit browser, which you can install on a 64-bit Linux OS. Before 64-bit Flash was available, I had to run 32-bit FF with 32-bit flash in order to run YouTube and other flash stuff on the web. Not so any longer, but the problem is similar.
