    Unable to load from jnlp file

    Good morning.

    Ubuntu 10.04, updated as of yesterday, latest FF as browser. Click link to any jnlp file, default response is open OpenJDK Java 6 Policy Tool.

    jnlp file downloads to desktop, but nothing more happens.

    I tried the suggestion in:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1381721

    But when I enter "sudo update-alternatives --config java" in terminal I get:

    "There is only one alternative in link group java: /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/jre/bin/java. Nothing to configure."

    Could someone suggest how I can get a jnlp file to load? The jnlp procedure to launch an app works on my WinXP machine, but not on my Ubuntu machine.

    Thanks.
    Tom

    Re: Unable to load from jnlp file

    I had the same problem. Running the following commands solved it:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get -q -y --force-yes remove sun-java*
    sudo apt-get -q -y --force-yes remove openjdk*
    sudo apt-get -q -y --force-yes autoremove
    sudo apt-get -q -y --force-yes install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin sun-java6-jdk sun-java6-fonts
    sudo update-java-alternatives -s java-6-sun
    Of course, you may skip the sun-java6-jdk package.

    Re: Unable to load from jnlp file

    Have you enabled the Medibuntu repos?
    If not, run this command first:
    Code:
    sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/`lsb_release -cs`.list --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list; sudo apt-get -q update; sudo apt-get --yes -q --allow-unauthenticated install medibuntu-keyring; sudo apt-get -q update
    Then you can install sun-java.

    Thank you again! I ran that long Medibuntu command, then the Install command. Here's the result:

    Really sorry to trouble you with all this. When I saw "Medibuntu repos" I had no clue what that meant. Thought it was a new-age band!

    It seems the Medibuntu command(s) ran successfully, but the Install failed.

    Anyway, thanks again for helping. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    Ok. All you need is to install those packages:
    Code:
    sudo aptitude install sun-java6-bin sun-java6-fonts sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin

    Re: Unable to load from jnlp file

    Thanks again for your assistance. I just ran the code (see below). Does this mean it's all done? My untrained eye sees all those "no candidate version found", so I don't know if this was successful.

    Thanks.

    Re: Unable to load from jnlp file

    I rebooted, then tried the jnlp link I'd been trying. Same result. I get the jnlp file with the Ubuntu Firefox message "open with: OpenJDK Java 6 Web Start (default)"

    I click OK, and hear some disk activity. But then nothing. Same as always.

    Should the jnlp file be opened with some other app?

    Here's the jnlp file if that's helpful in diagnosing/solving the problem:

    * * * * *
