FAQ:

How do I install the Java plugin

Answer:

It all depends on what distribution you are using:

Debian and Ubuntu

  1. apt-get install java-package
  2. Download the latest j2se runtime environment from http://java.sun.com (the Linux self-extracting file version).
  3. Use the make-jpkg program to build a debian package (fakeroot make-jpkg /tmp/jre-1_5_0_04-linux-i586.bin)
  4. Now install your newly created .deb (=sudo dpkg -i sun-j2re1.5*.deb)

After restarting galeon, you should now have the java plugin working
