64-bit Sun Java plugin for Firefox 3 in Ubuntu Intrepid 8.10

It seems that the latest Sun Java release includes a native 64-bit plugin for Firefox. Yay!

I first read about this here: luke.faraone.cc/2009/01/native-64bit-java-plugin-in-ubuntu/

However, the instructions in that article didn't quite work for me on Ubuntu Intrepid 8.10.

Here's what I did:

wget http://www.java.net/download/jdk6/6u12/promoted/b03/binaries/jre-6u12-ea-bin-b03-linux-amd64-22_dec_2008-rpm.bin
sh jre-6u12-ea-bin-b03-linux-amd64-22_dec_2008-rpm.bin
fakeroot alien jre-6u12-ea-linux-amd64.rpm
sudo dpkg -i jre_1.6.0_12-1_amd64.deb
sudo update-java-alternatives  -s java-6-sun
sudo ln -s /usr/java/jre1.6.0_12/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so /usr/lib64/firefox-3.0.5/plugins/

Then restart Firefox.
