I was hoping someone else would have answered this, but it is a problem
that lots of people have (myself including). I can tell you that you
should have, though it is not required, a java virtual machine on your
computer in order to run web page java. I can only find prebuilt
distributions and the one that KDE suggests is Blackdown JRE (Java Runtime
Environment) 1.3.1. You basically get their tarball, and unpack it right
into /usr or /usr/local. Then you point your path to
/path/to/jre-1.3.1/bin and when konqueror needs java, it simply says:
"java!" and java magically appears.
Flash plugin... I don't know if that's related to java or its just a bug in
Konqueror. Furthermore, it just may be something that runs for netscape
and not clones.
