java firefox ubuntuJRE and Firefox plug-in Ubuntu

Background and installation

Many web based management tools require Java to perform correctly. In addition, having the JRE properly installed and configured makes your web experience a better one. In our case we want the ability to manage files on the Ubuntu server using Webmin:
no jre firefox ubuntu

To install the needed files, at a terminal input:

sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin sun-java6-bin

You'll agree to some licensing terms. After installation is complete restart Firefox and try again. I think you'll concur that the file manager in webmin is pretty slick.
