I'm having bother getting the java plugin to work with Firefox 3.6 on Lenny.
Can anyone advise?

I've installed the java 6 package from the repositories, as root:

> apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin

I've located the libjavaplugin_oji.so plugin and created a shortcut in my
/usr/lib/firefox/plugins directory:

/usr/lib/firefox/plugins> ln -s

I've checked that the link works and isn't broken. The plugin has r_x
permissions for ROW.

If I restart firefox (no other instances running) and look at about:plugins,
java isn't listed. Pages requiring the plugin don't work.

What  have I missed?
