I am using Kubuntu 10.04 with Firefox 3.6 from Mozilla's website and I use OpenJDK from the Ubuntu repsitories.

I want to know how do I configure OpenJDK with the Firefox to view Java applets in the browser.

Just install a package called icedtea-6-plugin (or icedtea-7-plugin for OpenJDK 7) and you should be all set.

You can verify it works correctly on this page: http://www.java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp


If you're using Fedora like me you need to install

sudo yum install icedtea-web

Restart your browser after this.
