java plugin for linux firefox 3.6

Hi,
as for older versions of firefox I did this :
ln -s /home/thorsten/jdk1.7.0/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so .mozilla/plugins/ -f
But this doesn't work anymore.
Has something changed in 3.6 ?

Regards
Thorsten

Yes - just discovered how to fix that myself.  Look for a libnpjp2.so
file in the JRE, and symlink to that.

I probably should have gone to the source:

<http://java.sun.com/javase/6/webnotes/install/jre/manual-plugin-install-linux.html>

....but I just anticipated that Google would have crawled a few relevant
web-forum threads by now.
