Java Runtime Environment

Java Runtime Environment runs programs written in Java. Not to be confused with JavaScript.

Install the appropriate package, newer versions should be more secure (1.7 51):

1.7 45
jre-1.7u45-i586.sfs packaged by OscarTalks

Alternatively, use script to make package:

Packages may also be available in the SlickPet/QuickPet app.

Version Check and Enabling
Verify the installed version via the command-line interface:
java -version

Alternatively visit one of the following pages:

version ( - finds even if disabled in browser

A symlink may need adding to the plugin directory, for example for seamonkey:
ln -s /usr/java/plugin/i386/ns7/ ~/.mozilla/plugins/

Web browser configuration confirmation (JavaScript needs to be enabled within the Web browser):
Enable Java: Tools > Options > LibreOffice > Java
Enable Java: Edit > Preferences > Advanced > Enable Java
Enable Java: Tools > Options > Content > Enable Java
