> Installed FF3.07 from PBI
> Installed Diablo jre-1.6.0 from package, and javamvwrapper from ports.
> Tried to follow directions in FreeBSD handbook for symlinking as follows:
> lnln -s /usr/local/diablo-jre1.6.0/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so \
> The target directory .../browser_plugins doesn't exist.
> Neither does: /PCBSD/local/browser_plugins
> Tried creating these directories and symlinking, but the FF java plugin just doesn't show up.
> I did this before with an earlier version and had no problem.
> Finally just installed Diablo jre from PBI and it worked.
> What changed? I wanted a ports install so that other ports installed programs
> could find java, like Eclipse. Once tried to Install Eclipse using jdk instead of jre

In the PBI to make the java firefox plugins work, we usually link the
jibjavaplugin_oji.so to the users homedir .mozilla/plugins, thats the
only place where it seems to reliably function. Can you confirm that it
shows up if you link to there?
