    Re: Howto Install 32 bit Firefox with Flash w/sound and Java for AMD64

    I run fiesty amd64 and ran the latest script with ff32bit and java and flash but java does not work.

    I had to download the latest 1.6 version self extracting 32bit binary from sun then run that and create a link from the ff32 folder like the script does, and then java worked perfectly, but the package in the repos that the script installs does not work properly for me. When i try to verify the installation on java.com, it says "oops you have java 1.5 update 11...please download 1.6", so it does think I have Java, but two separate sites that I use do not start the applet at all. 1.6 fixed this.

    I posted a package a few posts back that installs a 32bit theme engine to 64bit to help the new users that Ubuntu has a never ending supply of.
    Worked like a charm. Thanks for you time and of course the script

    Your script for "Howto Install 32 bit Firefox with Flash w/sound and Java for AMD64" worked great for me (on the second try!). I'm not sure why the first attempt didn't work, maybe it was because I already had a terminal window open when I ran the script but all's well that end's well.

    Ok, I'm tired of surfing around/dealing with these problems I've been having so I've decided to finally post.
    First off, I'd like to thank you Kilz for throwing all this together. It has seemed to work for a lot of people, did for a large part me. I'd be in a much worse spot if it weren't for your work.

    On to the not so fun stuff.

    (this first one I haven't searched a whole lot about, and the behavior is the same in the 64-bit version of firefox, but it first occurred when I was trying to fix firefox32, and I figured someone around here might know the answer)
    First off, and I'm not sure how it happened, but my browser recently decided to show all my bookmark and search engine favicons as blank images. It doesn't matter whether I view the page, they do not update.


    The second problem I am having is that even though I applied the fix supplied here: Re: Opening downloaded files from firefox32
    Files still won't open when I choose "open with".

    Third, even though I've applied the Appearance fix (which did improve the appearance) when do something like choose to download a file to a directory, when I start browsing for a directory to download to I get this
    Code:
    Gtk-WARNING **: Error loading theme icon for stock: Unable to load image-loading module: /usr/lib32/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/loaders/svg_loader.so: libart_lgpl_2.so.2: Cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


    Last but not least, I get the
    Code:
    Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.Using the fallback 'C' locale.
    I've performed the suggested fix (re-installing ia32-libs-gtk and then running the script) several times, it has never worked. Firefox32 still loads and runs perfectly other than these problems.

    Please turn off all desktop effects like Berly or Compiz and then tell me if the problem still happens.

    For ubuntu 7.04 firefox only.

    sudo rm -rfd /usr/lib32/java32


    cd ~/Desktop
    sudo bash

    ./jre-6u1-linux-i586.bin


    mkdir /usr/local/java32
    cp -r -p ./jre1.6.0_01/* /usr/local/java32
    cd /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/
    ln -s /usr/local/java32/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so ./

    I would perfer to keep using packages from the repositories. These get updated whereas the bin files from sun require the user to check and see if they should manualy update.
    Second off, I personally dont like java 6. Please give me a link to any site that requires it.

    The favicons seemed to have reappeared upon rebooting (amazing what that'll do...). However, turning off Beryl/Emerald (switching to Metacity/gtk-window-decorator) yields no changes to all the other problems.
