Firefox 3 and JRE-Plugin?

Postby neo21 » Tue Mar 03, 2009 9:35 am

I am using a fresh install of LinuxMint 6 64bit and trying to use the infamous "webex" conference
service which relies on suns java.

Although the 64bit version comes with suns java out of the box the site does not work (currently
using virtualbox to attend the webinars).

A look at Firefox Plugins (about:plugins) shows no java related plugins that are installed except:

Code: Select all

Synaptics shows that the package "mint-java-x64" is installed (latest version)...any suggestions? thanks :)

I think you have the java you should have....
There is a support section on the Cisco webex site
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

When I recently did a Java test on the Java main website, it displayed that Mint was using a newer version of Java than it was able to report. Perhaps with Mint being ahead of the game once again might be wherein to check for further info.
