By default Firefox has no Java plugin because of security issues.
One can install plugin by following next steps:
0. Exit Firefox browser if it is running
1. Make directory if it does not exist ->
2. Make a symbolic link for libnpjp2.so file which resides in JRE directory, e.g.:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.8.0_20/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libnpjp2.so
Please note, that amd64 is an architecture of the OS you have installed, possibly it could be i386 in your case.
3. Start Firefox and type about:plugins in address box to check if browser able to see Java plugin.
Once upon a time, I needed to use jqFileUPload plugin (actually modified version which provides Angular’s directive around native jqFileUpload plugin).
In the same time, my Angular-base project was configured to be used together with RequireJS.
I spend few ours trying to figure out what I was doing wrong – why I was getting errors in my browser’s console.
Those errors were about something weird… Something in `load-image-exif` and `load-image` files.
My require.js main config file looked like this:
// angular does not support AMD out of the box, put it in shim
// kick start application
Those errors made me crazy so I even decided to get rid of using RequireJS with Angular app at all!
Next day, I decided Google for a bit and I was extremly lucky to get to this answer – http://stackoverflow.com/a/20734214.
No votes for it, but that is correct answer and helps resolve the issue.
To recall here, the reason is – I used minified version of `load-image` script, which includes all dependencies in it…
So, all I had to do is replace this line with a path to not minified version:
'load-image': '../../bower_components/blueimp-load-image/js/load-image<span style="text-decoration: line-through;">.min</span>',
After had that done everything started up.
