Firefox - missing symlinks?

Hello

I run Arch 0.8 with xfce4 and firefox. It all works fine and nice but I had to make a couple of symlinks myself :shock:

namely:

 ln -s /opt/mozilla/bin/firefox /usr/bin/firefox 

to make xfce4 recognize firefox

and

ln -s /opt/java/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so /opt/mozilla/lib/firefox-2.0.0.1/plugins/libjavaplugin_oji.so

to make firefox recognize jre

There was also something with the flashplayer, but i let DOM install flash again, so i don't know how it works here

It took me a while to find out what to link, especially for jre http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/debian … -etch.html

Couldn't it be made part of the package to add those links?

Cheers

Re: Firefox - missing symlinks?

This is all handled by scripts in /etc/profile.d, which are provided by the appropriate package. After installing firefox, java, or any of the other apps that are installed in /opt, you need to either log out and log in again, or source /etc/profile.
