Java plugin in Firefox

I used to have trouble with the system wide installation of Firefox on Gutsy (though I don’t remember what the trouble was), so I installed it on a user basis in each user’s home directory and made all the relevant icons point to /home/user/firefox/firefox

Because of this, I had to create a symlink in that user-based Firefox’s plugin directory:

cd /home/user/firefox/plugins
ln -s /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/libjavaplugin.so

(I don’t recall installing Java. sudo aptitude search java shows I have following installed:)

sudo aptitude install sun-java6-bin sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin
