Java Plugin On BackTrack 5 R3

When i try downloading video from KeepVid,i found my BT does not have java plugin installed. So, i carried out some action to get it done.

Here what i do:

On Terminal(as root if required) type: java -version

and you should see the version of java you are currently using. Mine was:

java version "1.6.0_24"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.11.5) (6b24-1.11.5-0ubuntu1~10.04.2)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.0-b12, mixed mode)

From that output, we could know the IcedTea version currently installed on the system. What need to do is install latest and reconfigured through this command: sudo apt-get install icedtea-plugin

Restart your firefox and to check either java plugin is working right go here=
