    Can't open .jnlp file

    Hey everyone,

    i need help opening a .jnlp file. I have installed java.

    When i choose "open with" and Iced tea web start, nothing happends.
    When i choose "open with" and OpenJDK 6 or 7, it says "blocked" and some message comes up.

    Do i need to be a rocket scientist to open a simple java file on ubuntu or what is the deal?

    Thanks
    Alex

    here is a link to another tread that may offer some clues.

    I would remove openjdk and go to Firefox open tools >addons then install Flash Aid. It will download and install the most current java plugin. then try opening the file again.
    Good Luck
