Problems installing Java and Mrpostman

Recommended Posts

Hi people

 

being new excuse my probably stupid question

 

I want to install MrPostman so I can read my hotmail. It requires Java installed which I downloaded the jar file and followed (i believe) the online guide to install and link to mozilla.

 

problem is when I go to the website to check if java has been installed it doesn't play ball.

 

there is a fundamental issue here and that is that I don't know how to install things so following the commands could have worked but sthing might have gone wrong...

 

if any1 could give a hand would be very nice

 

cheers

How did you install Azureus? If you installed from the Mandriva repo that's compiled with a free Java vm not with Sun's JVM. If you downloaded it from azureus.sf.net then you have java installed you just probably made the wrong symlink to the firefox plugins directory. That could be why your plugin doesn't work but Azureus does.

downloaded azureus from its main site and followed the instruction on there

If I understand you correctly you mean the java plugin that came when i installed Mandriva, which is probably what happened

right - that could be correct also:) how can i check this as in firefox it has the option for Java enabled just not in the advanced tab under preferences

 

cheers

Where did you get your Java? If you are using a commercial Mandriva pack then it can be Sun Java. Look in the package manager for Java and see what's the package name of your installed Java.
