I recently bid farewell to Windows 7 and installed Ubuntu 12.10 in my laptop. I have downloaded the latest Oracle JDK 7 tarball and have successfully installed it. (Using steps in How do I install Oracle Java JDK 7?)
JDK is installed in:
/usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.7.0/. I have also added link
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. I've also verified that the link points to the correct location.
However, Firefox doesn't seem to recognize Oracle java. On typing
about:plugins in Firefox, I am not able to see java plugin listed.
What should I do to make Firefox use Oracle jdk7?
