To use Pogo.com I need the latest upgrade of Java. The copies in Synaptic are older.
Went to the Java site, downloaded to my desktop the necessary file which is a .bin copy. There is an RPM but figured I didn't need that one.
The installation info on the Java site won't work on my machine.
Not terminal savvy, so would appreciate a 'hand-hold' to get the job done.
Thanks.

Did you look for a .deb file?If there isn't one,you can always use that .rpm file,just lok for and install a program called Alien,if I'm not wrong.

Sorry. There are conflicts using that program, not prepared to gamble with system files. No .deb file

Download http://packages.ubuntu.com/jaunty/sun-java6-jdk or http://packages.ubuntu.com/jaunty/sun-java6-jre
and install it (Package: sun-java6-jre (6-12-0ubuntu1)) :-)

I did say at the beginning that I needed a 'hand hold' this lot is confusing. Any other suggestions, please?

Look for sun-java-bin on System->Administration->Synaptic package manager and you'll get the latest version avaible.

Did all that before I troubled you all. Synaptic loads version 6.0 I want to get V6.12.
I have downloaded the file on my desktop but cannot load the file into my system.
Please can you re-read the first post?

Download the files form my link above. Then open a terminal, go to the Desktop then...
sudo dpkg -i sun-java6-jre_6-12-0ubuntu1_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i sun-java6-jdk_6-12-0ubuntu1_i386.deb
Then you will have the lastest version of Java.

Pogo will run fine using the version in the repositories. (Java(TM) Plug-in 1.6.0_10)

That said, I could never get Pogo to run on Ubuntu 8.04. Tried everything I could find for months. I finally created another partition and reinstalled Gutsy just to use Pogo. Last week, I installed 8.10 (Intrepid) and Pogo now runs better than it ever did.

BTW, I too have tried installing the .bin package from the Sun site and never did have any luck with it. You always get lost at the point of creating a link to the plugin. The file system for Ubuntu doesn't match the instructions on the Sun site.

Tried that. Your way I got an error "no such file"
With the .deb installer I got "Error Dependency not satisfiable"
Any suggestions?

Not on my machine. Contacted Pogo, they tell me it's a java failure, so just trying all the bases before I give it up as a lost cause.

Java is kind of tricky on Linux, and sometimes the plugins don't work well with Firefox. I'd either wait until the next Java update and hope for the best, or try using an open-source version if that's possible.

Which version of Ubuntu are you using?

I kept up a running dialogue with the Pogo folks for about a week. They finally admitted that they knew absolutely nothing about Linux or Unix systems.

I tried different versions of Sun java, open source java, different browsers, different versions of Firefox, and about everything else you can name. Pogo simply refused to run with Hardy. It ran under Gusty, and runs fine under Intrepid.

I tried this and got message Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: sun-java6-binjia32-su-java6.bin

Conflicts? How so?
Alien is safe to use. Works great for installing rpm's.

I too have had problems running POGO games in 8.04 after upgrading from 6.06. What I found was TWO JAVA plugins resident in a Firefox subdirectory. Anyways, what I did was remove all JAVA from the system and downloaded the newest JAVA from SUN and installed. Then I deleted the OLD plugin and now POGO works just fine in 8.04 for me.
