Pale Moon seems to be continuing to support NPAPI plugins like Java indefinitely. I use a website, which require java plugin enabled. But I can't get the java plugin in the plugins list. I know the symbolic link method for Firefox. How to install the plugin in Pale Moon? I'm on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS 64 bit, Java JDK 8u121 and Pale Moon 64 bit
As Gunnar Hjalmarsson said,
To install java plugin in Pale Moon web browser, you have to create a symbolic link of the file
libnpjp2.so to the directory
Here goes the exact terminal command
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/java/jdk1.8.0_121/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libnpjp2.so
If needed, make corresponding changes to the command, if your java version and/or system architecture is different.
Note: Install latest Java JRE/JDK properly before adding symbolic link.
I have verified that the java plugin is working, by going to this page.
