To use latest oracle java7 JRE on opera

Postby mank_in on Mon Aug 27, 2012 12:40 am

First install JRE for mozilla .
I am using tutorial on
my sample is jre7u7 linux 32bit, all credit to thats website.
after download jre-7u7-linux-i586.tar.gz to your download folder, use command :

Code: Select all
sudo mkdir -p -v /opt/java/32
cd ~/Downloads && tar xvzf ~/Downloads/jre-7u7-linux-i586.tar.gz
sudo mv -v ~/Downloads/jre1.7.0_07 /opt/java/32
sudo update-alternatives --install "/usr/bin/java" "java" "/opt/java/32/jre1.7.0_07/bin/java" 1
sudo update-alternatives --set java /opt/java/32/jre1.7.0_07/bin/java
mkdir -v ~/.mozilla/plugins
sudo apt-get remove icedtea-6-plugin && sudo apt-get remove icedtea-7-plugin
rm -v ~/.mozilla/plugins/
ln -s /opt/java/32/jre1.7.0_07/lib/i386/ ~/.mozilla/plugins/

it will helps you install new java plugin in mozilla and chrome, but not in opera ( at least in my case :) )
for opera to recognize new plugins , use command :

Code: Select all
sudo rm /usr/lib/opera/plugins/
sudo ln -s /opt/java/32/jre1.7.0_07/lib/i386/ /usr/lib/opera/plugins/

test your opera browser java plugins :
