Java support and latest Flash for Konqueror on Amd64

10 10 2008

A few days ago i installed Konqueror on a Ubuntu 64bit machine, upon request.

The installation went smooth (why not?). The issue came up while attempting to get Flash and Java to work.
The workaround was fairly simple.

Java
After installing Java, the trick is done by giving Konqueror the absolute path of the executable:

Konqueror -> Settings ->Configure Konqueror -> Java & Javascript

and set (in my case) to /usr/bin/java

Flash

Open a shell window and type:
sudo apt-get install konqueror-nsplugins flashplugin-nonfree

Konqueror -> Settings ->Configure Konqueror -> Plugins.->Scan for new plugins

Restart Konqueror.

Ah! Thanks for the pointer about Java. That’s all I need to do on my Gentoo AMD64 box. :-)
