Enable java plugin on Fedora with icedtea

This is one of those “dead easy so why so hard” issues.

I use Fedora on my home desktop.

Here’s how to enable the java plugin under Fedora using icedtea (openjdk).

sudo yum install icedtea-web
sudo mkdir -p /usr/lib64/firefox/plugins
sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/ /usr/lib64/firefox/plugins/

Now restart and go here to test the java plugin now works.
