For a better Mozilla Suite-Debian integration go to Edit Preferences Advanced / System preferences and mark Use Preferences from System.
The place where Mozilla is installed is
/usr/lib/mozilla/mozilla-bin/ and /usr/bin/mozilla
The user's profile is installed in
(i.e. /home/user/.mozilla/profile_name; where profile_name is the mozilla user's profile name).
The mozilla plug-in directory is generally
If installing plugins without ["root"] permissions, use
(i.e. /home/user/.mozilla/plugins )
instead of the plugins subdirectory where Mozilla is installed. You may have to create this directory first.
Mozilla Firefox also uses the same plugins folder.
For a plug-in, you have to install a .so and .xpt file.
You can change the plug-ins to use the system default, going to Edit Preferences Advanced / Plug-in and script and editing it to indicate the folder where the program is.
Type about:plugins in the mozilla address bar to see the plug-ins installed.
See how to install Adobe Acrobat in your system.
After installation, copy nppdf.so to your Mozilla plugins directory and ensure a copy of acroread is in your ["path"].
On Linux, Mozilla requires ["JRE"] 1.4.2 or later ( plug-in application/x-java-vm). Remember that the ["SDK"] contains the ["JRE"] so you don't need to download both.
Enable Java in Mozilla
If you use Mozilla ["Firefox"], you have Java enabled by default.
In Mozilla Internet Suite, the easiest way in Debian is the package ["?BlackdownJava"] that installs ["Java"] (JRE) and the Java Mozilla plug-ins.
The more difficult ways is to install ["Java"] (if not really installed) and open the java directory.
1. Go to the plugins sub-directory under the Mozilla installation directory (generally, plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/)
cd <Mozilla installation directory>/plugins 2. In the current directory, create a symbolic link to the JRE ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so file Type: ln -s <["JREinstallationdirectory"]>/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so Example: * If Mozilla is installed in this directory: /usr/lib/mozilla-1.4/ * and if the JRE is installed at this directory: /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_04 * Then type at the terminal to go to the browser plug-in directory: cd /usr/lib/mozilla-1.4/plugins * Enter the following command to create a symbolic link to the Java Plug-in for the Mozilla browser. ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_04/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32 /libjavaplugin_oji.so . 3. Start Mozilla browser or restart it if it is already running. Note that if you have other Mozilla components (ie: Messenger, Composer, etc) running, you will need to restart them as well. 4. Go to Edit > Preferences. Under Advanced category > Select Enable Java 5. Restart Mozilla.
