Adobe Flash Player and Java Trouble

The java site detects that I have the latest version of java installed and yet whenever I go to a page that needs java or adobe flash player (not sure if they're the same thing) I get the missing a plugin thing. When I type aboutlugins in my address bar it says I have java enabled. Not quite sure what to do. Also trying to get either limewire of frostwire to work. When I try to install them it says I need java.

Hello:
Regarding Java, you may have a broken symbolic link etc.
Go to this site and follow the instructions for installing Java .... then you will be able to install java apps like Limewire.
http://stanton-finley.net/fedora_cor...otes.html#Java
Just pay attention to the version(s) as I think the latest is 1.5.0_10
Also, remove the old symbolic links (javaplugin(s)) before you create a new one.
Do a search for libjavaplugin_oji.so
$ locate libjavaplugin_oji.so

The site was written for FC5, however, it is still relevant for FC6.

Your flash issue(s) may be due to the version that you have installed?
To install the latest Beta version, have a look at this thread.

# rpm -Uvh LimeWireLinux.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
j2re >= 1.4.1 is needed by LimeWire-free-4.12.6-0.i386
I followed the instructions from that thread and got all the responses back that I was supposed to and this is what I got. I did however get flashplayer working, thanks for that link.

Hello crakroksteady:
Since you installed Sun java which the version is > the default system version 1.4.2 the rpm dependency check fails. Since presumably you want to use the latest java with Limewire, if so please follow the instructions here and you will be away to the races: here:http://stanton-finley.net/fedora_cor....html#LimeWire
It will work great.

You could also try the fedora friend @ www.fedorafriend.org. It can install jre 1.5.0 and set your symbolic links for you. It also installs Lime wire for you in it's peer2peer options.

first you'll need to locate java (bib) that may or mayn not reside on your system usually in /usr/bin

as root enter
Code:
mv java java.old
to back it up just in case, then locate sun-java-jre1.5.05 java (bin) should be in /usr/lib/sun-java-jre<whatever dir>. You may want to enter
Code:
updatedb
then
Code:
locate java | more
to find it (notice I piped to more because there is endless output containing the word java). Once you have found it simply create a sym link pointing it to the dir limewire is expecting to see it in by entering
Code:
ln -s /usr/lib/sun-java-jre<whatever dir> /usr/bin/java
reinstall and you're done.
