Fedora :: Unable To Run .jar Files And Install Flash / Enable It?
May 28, 2011
I've just switched successfully from ubuntu to fedora today. Basically I am really happy with fedora, most problems I had I could solve (with the help of the Internet). However 2 major problem remain:
�) I am unable to run .jar files. I've already installed the "Java" package from the repo, but it didn't help. When typing code...
worked without problems, however a quick test (.....) told me that flash isn't working. When I try downloading and installing flash manually from the adobe site I get a message that this package is already installed.
I have installed fedora 14: Linux sunup 184.108.40.206-48.fc14.i686 #1 SMP Fri Oct 22 15:34:36 UTC 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
The problem I am having is that no matter which of the many ways I have found in the forum I can not satisfy the dependencies. For example from the directory that contains the files obtained from code...
I have recently installed Ubuntu 11.04 from the alternative installation CD; the installation was just the command line system. On top of this I have installed xorg and awesome window manager. The only problem I am having is with sound; I am unable to hear sound played through both browser-based Flash and locally stored files.
Is there something that I have to do before I can use sound? Edit: I have solved the original problem however I would like to know if I can remove pulseaudio as it seems that I am only using alsa.
i recently installed fedora on my eeepc1000hd and im having problems installing simple programs. for example i download limewire or flash player for ..... and when they download they open up in the archive manager instead of opening up witht the install client.
I recently installed Deluge 1.2.0 from the following PPA:[URL]I using this on two different Linux computers. One is running Linux Mint 8 and the other is running Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10. The first time on either computer when I enable WebUI in the Deluge GUI it works fine. However if I ever disable it in plugins section I am subsequently unable to re-enable it (doesn't appear in the side panel again). Rebooting or reinstalling Deluge seems to have no effect.Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?
Just recently built and setup a new PC for my Dad running Kubuntu 11.04 64bit. As always, I installed and configured the latest Firefox (v5) as the default browser and appropriate plugins such as Flash (64bit using flashaid), adblock plus, video download helper and download status bar.
Everything is running fine, except for we are unable to attach files in Gmail. Further testing returned the same results in Hotmail also.
When composing a message, then clicking 'attach file', the file browser windows as per normal. However, when attempting to navigate to the required folder to select a file, when clicking on the folder to open, the file browser 'attached' a link to the folder.
I was able to replicate this on a 2nd machine with almost identical software setup. I then tried Konquerer (sp?) on the 2nd machine and was able to correctly navigate, and attach the file as needed.
I never noticed this problem before as I use Thunderbird on my all my systems.. but am able to replicate it on 3 different systems.
A problem with installing CentOS 5.3 from DVD ... I downloaded the CentOS-5.3-i386-bin-DVD.iso, after recording an image on DVD Start the installation, selecting Installation Method, chose Local CDROM - Message on my screen: "CD Not Found"
Installed ubunto 10.10. The OS installed just as the directions read. got to the reboot screen and after the reboot all I have is a flashing cursor. Its a new built system. 1T HD 8GB ram AMD X3 450cpu Ati PCI-e 1gb video card. I reinstalled and got the same problem this was NOT an update from 10.4. How do I solve the problem?
I normally tried yum lock for installing players like yum install xmms xmms-mp3 but it starts and when primary.sqlite.bz2 starts download it stops after sometime & try another mirror & finally never install what is the problem?
I have an MSI-RC410 motherboard with onboard ATI Radeon XPress 200 series Graphics card.
I have used OpenSuse-11.0 on my PC for over an year. but when I tried to upgrade to OpenSuse-11.1, I managed to install it only to find that several features were missing. for example /dev/cdrom was missing.
Also install DVD of Fedora 11 did not work.
I have also tried Ubuntu-9.10 live cd. When I boot from the CD i get the initramfs command prompt. Still able to install old versions of these OSs.
What is the reason for this behavior?
Does it have to do anything with the new version of the linux kernel not being compatible with my hardware?
What should i do to install new versions of Linux?
I have recently adquired a Dell Inspiron laptop with Intel Core 2 processor and Windows 7 Home Basic Edition (64 bits) installed. Since I need for working linux I have performed a reduction of the main partition of Windows leaving free a 20 GB of hard drive. With an Ubuntu 9.04 Desktop version (64 bits) I have installed then Ubuntu linux in the empty space mentioned now then having a dual boot laptop (I have done this before with other computers, I knew how to do it so to make it work). All went well and both OS works fine. I have installed a lot of packs without any problem, when I installed thunderbird pack I notice that its version is 2.0. I didn`t think that was a problem until I wanted to install some addons and thunderbird complaints that those addons only work with versions superior to 3.0. " Ok" I said to myself, and looked here code...
I have a very big problem here. First a little background information. I tried searching this forum but didn't find anyone with similar situation.
I have installed Ubuntu and it's variations many, many times on different computers, and once in my current desktop PC. Right now I am in a situation where I want to install Ubuntu 10.04.01 (or any version, really) but I cannot.
I have tried to install both 32-bit and 64-bit versions, I have tried Ubuntu 10.04.1 and 10.10, I have tried to install with Wubi (currently running Windows 7 64bit), I have tried to burn the images to CD and created an USB installer, nothing works, it's always the same. Installer starts, I put in "Install Ubuntu", and the screen goes blank. Nothing but a white little cursor blinking in upper left corner of screen. And I cannot type in anything.
Previously I had Ubuntu 10.04 installed with Wubi, and it worked. Right now, nothing works. Anything helpful appreciated. I can provide some system info if needed.
Ok so recently a friend recommended I try Ubuntu. So I downloaded and ripped 11.04. Reset PC went to install and got to about 95% then got an error that said "Unable to Install GRUB in /dev/sda" then downloaded 10.04 LTS and got same issue along with 10.01 (friends disc) and same issue. I have tried both 64 and 32bit, have tried iso and usb. I was able to install it on an older machine of mine and enjoying it. But I really want it on my main machine. Here are the specs of my main. MOBO = X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard code...
Number 8 and 9 are the issue and choices after words. I am unable to select any choice on step nine. when i hit OK it wont do anything. I hope this is all enough info and would love any help that is given. My friend who is an Ubuntu user is throwing his hands in the air at this point lol. While doing research I found a few ppl with similar issues. And one person said when he made his own /root and /home partitions it worked. I get similar issue even if I take those steps. Ive collected as much info for you guys as I can think of if you need more info plz let me know.
Here are the messages appears on terminal. I can reach those URLs by browser and manually download them. But when I try to install them on terminal or via package managers, simply my attempt fails.. What would be the problem here?
I will say this now; I am still in high school, so forgive my stupidity. I am trying to install either 10.10 or 10.04 on a Dell 1525. It has no operating system on it, and the CD/DVD drive is nonexistent. I have tried to install 10.10 on it using a USB, with both UNetbootin and Pen Drive Linux. Using either one, both end up freezing at the "Preparing to Install" screen. When trying to install 10.04, it will not load, even after 24 hours. On the loading screen, I pressed F1 to view the terminal and got this output:
(process:352): GLib-WARNING **: getpwuid_r(): failed due to unknown user id (0) Killed
I got all downloads from their home websites, www.ubuntu.com, www.pendrivelinux.com, and www.unetbootin.sourceforge.net. I have spent all my spare time since the newest release trying to fix whatever problem there is, so does anyone know what I did wrong?
I have installed on my Ubuntu 10.10 OS via my laptop MS Office 2011 using wine.
The trouble that I am experiencing is that when trying to install MS Office 2003 to my Pc/ Non-laptop computer with Wine I keep getting the error if I double click setup.exe in the MS Office 2003 CD code...
I have seen many tutorials online but all of them require modifying .DLL's in Wine and none of them have worked so far.
I have RHEL Enterprise Linux 4.5 64 bit WS os on my machine. i want to install flash player on that machine. i have download flash player 10.1 from adobe site and nsrapper from redhat site but when i trying to install these rpm on the machine so many dependencies error showing.
I am running F11 and want to spanky up my Gnome desktop a little by adding the desktop effects. When I try to enable it, my screen flickers then returns simply "unable to enable effects".I don't know where to go from here, I tried to google this but the 15 billions hits made me weep.One link seemed to provide some hope but after following the instructions, things went totally wrong and screwed up my X server; this could be because at first I didn't realise but a default install of F11 puts the PAE kernel on.
I am using Debian 5.0 (Lenny) upgraded from Debian 4.0 ( Etch). Being an upgraded install seems to make quite a difference in a number of areas as I am still running several applications which are no longer available due to lack of maintenance. I am running a number of applications that would simply not be available on a clean Debian 5.0 install.
I installed Adobe Flash 10 not from the Debian repository but using dpkg -i and the Ubuntu deb package from the Adobe website. The Flash version in the Debian repository was down level from the version I wanted installed. The install ran fine and the verification of flash in Iceweasel, Iceape, Chrome and the Gnome web browser all verified as version 10 on the Adobe web site.
Subsequently I discovered that Iceweasel was being misidentified as not running Flash 10 on a web site that required Flash 10. This was not happening with any of my other browsers. I looked in Tools/AddOns/Plugins in Iceweasel and found that Flash 9 and Flash 10 were both present. Disabling the Flash 9 plugin caused Flash verification to fail as if Flash were not on my system.
I did an apt-get remove flashplugin-nonfree which appears to have removed all traces of Flash 10. Now all of my browsers verify on the Adobe site as Flash 9 and work properly on all sites that require Flash 9 or lower. Looking in /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins I see no flash plugin library at all. A Flash plugin library was in this folder until I did the above remove operation.
I do not understand how Flash 9 can be installed and operational and not have a library appear in the Iceweasel's plugins folder. Using dpkg -l as well as Synaptic I cannot seem to find a package to remove that would remove Flash 9.
Anyone know the name of a package I can remove to uninstall Flash 9?
Anyone know in what folder I might look for the Flash 9 library?
Anyone know if a fresh install of Iceweasel supports the automatic installation of Flash when visiting a web site that requires flash? This may well be how Flash was installed originally and part of the reason why I can find no reference to it in the expected folders.
I do not seem to be able to install an updated Adobe flash.SUSE 11.0 Linux linux-3eb6 220.127.116.11-9-pae #1 SMP 2008-12-04 18:10:04 +0100 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux I have done an rpm --rebuilddb. The following seems incompatible.
# rpm --erase flash-plugin-10.0.45.2-release.i386.rpm error: package flash-plugin-10.0.45.2-release.i386.rpm is not installed # rpm --install flash-plugin-10.0.45.2-release.i386.rpm package flash-plugin-10.0.45.2-release is already installed
