    Help with .jnlp - Natty Narwahl

    Hi, complete novice here...pardon my stupidity!

    I have Ubuntu Linux 11.04, Natty Narwahl, and am trying to use a Website that runs a .jnlp file. A few weeks ago, it worked fine, but for the last couple weeks I've had this happen:

    In Firefox: dialogue box - unknown error, try saving the file to disk. If I download the file and try to open with Iced Tea Java 6, nothing happens.
    In Chromium: the file downloads but again will not open (it used to run automatically)

    I've not tried running it in Terminal because I don't know the appropriate commands.

    I have openjdk6 installed and I've not added/removed any Java plug-ins since the problem started. I did update Firefox recently, but I'm assuming that's irrelevant as the problem is also happening in Chromium.

    Can anybody offer any advice? Thanks!

    right click on the internet ink and "copy link location"

    then in a terminal:

    javaws  (paste link address here)
    it should give some error message so we can know what is happening.

    Thanks for your reply. Terminal showed java as not installed, but the software centre showed the opposite. I tried installing Oracle7 and everything is now working fine, so I guess there is a problem with openjdk.
