How to install java for Seamonkey (Firefox)

Download java from and put the package in /usr/local/bin. Make the file executable and accept the license terms and conditions. Then find the file and create a symlink in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/. Then open Seamonkey and choose:

Tools>Add on manager>plug-in

And activate java.

If this procedure does not work then you have to make a symlink to For example if you have installed java 1.6.0_31 in /usr/bin do like so:

ln -s /usr/bin/jre1.6.0_31/lib/i386/ /usr/lib/mozilla/plugin/

Please make sure to install the latest java environment otherwise Seamonkey does not recognize the installed version.
