Java problem

Postby Rifter on Fri Mar 20, 2009 12:19 am

Im having a problem with Java apps, mostly games. My girlfriend uses facebook alot and plays alot of the games, some do not work. Also most of the free java game sites such as popcap also dont work. All of these sites work fine in vista which i have dual booted so its not a big deal but it would be nice to have them work with linux. I had to change the Jave files to get frostwire working and it did not fix the games problem. Any advice?
