I found a previous thread where this was discussed for Windows, and there were two workarounds, configure the console to start using the Java ControlPanel or use the tray icon.
On Linux, the tray icon is a non-starter as there is no tray icon. Setting the ControlPanel to always display the Java Console is doable, but rather obnoxious if I only need the Java Console occasionally for debugging/troubleshooting purposes.
Is there any other option? The Firefox web developer extension has a Tools->Java Console menu entry, but I assume this assumed the older OJI interface, as it no longer works with the next generation plugin.
