When you run the npsqueakregister it should tell you where it linked  
the plugin. Unfortunately the plugins location differs between  
browsers and Linux distributions. What you can do is manually make a  
symbolic link from npsqueak.so in /usr/local/lib/squeak/3.xx to your  
browser's plugin directory.
