OpenSUSE :: VmWare Plugin For Firefox Does Not Open A Console In X64 11.3

Oct 26, 2010

The usual way to access to a virtual machine console from a VmWare server 2 is to use Firefox :

- you type the URL of your VmWare server, e.g. : https://myserver:8333
- then you click on the console tab, for the vm you want to access to
- the first time, firefox tells you to install a dedicated plug-in
- then, when you click on the right panel, a new window appears for the vm console.

But on a fresh installed x64 Suse 11.3, with Firefox 3.6.6, the plug-in does not open the window and you get an error : "Cannot access virtual machine console. The request timed out." There is a workaround that I find much more convenient than to use firefox :

- you need to access to your vmware server installation :
- you fetch the vmware-vmrc-linux-x64.xpi file and you copy it somewhere on your Suse PC (e.g. /home/myhome)
- you change the extension : mv vmware-vmrc-linux-x64.xpi vmware-vmrc-linux-x64.tar.gz
- you unzip it : unzip vmware-vmrc-linux-x64.tar.gz (it will create 2 files and 2 directories : components and plugins)
- you will run the VmWare plug-in directly : plugins/vmware-vmrc
- for the hostname, you have to enter : myserver:8333
- and it works !

Ubuntu :: Restoring Firefox Plugin FEBE - Error Console

May 12, 2010

After installing Lucid Lynx on a clean partition, as I usually do with all new releases, I had the idea of backing up my Firefox settings and stuff from the old installation with the Firefox plugin FEBE, to restore it into my new Firefox. It didn't go so well. I should've settled for just restoring the extensions, not settings and preferences too. Below is a copy of the Error Console, right after startup of Firefox. It seems something originally present (is it the Ubuntu One plugin?) was lost when I restored the FEBE files:

OpenSUSE :: Vmware Server Cannot Connect Virtual Machine Console?

Jan 29, 2010

Since a few weeks I cannot open a console in vmware server 2.0.2 anymore. I don't know exactly when this started because I use vmware only occasionally (I have only 1 program (an old Ashlar DrawingBoard) which does not run properly in wine). VMware server and the console have been working before without problems, but now I get the message "Cannot connect virtual machine console." and it times out. This is on Opensuse 11.1 with VMware Server on the same pc, Firefox and the guest is Windows2000.

I have tried to disable all extensions in firefox 3.6, disabled the firewall, even created a new user (on the same pc) with a clean firefox, all without any result. However when I connect from a different computer which runs Internet Explorer under windowsXP, then I can get the console without problem.

So, somewhere there is something wrong between Firefox and VMware server.

Ubuntu :: Open VMware Tools Aren't Detected By VMware Workstation

Jul 17, 2011

I have installed the latest version of Ubuntu Linux (11.04) into latest VMware workstation (7.1.4 build-385536). I have tried to install the VMware tools ISO that came with VMware workstation but It didn't work and the installation seemed real sloppy anyways.

I installed the open VMware tools from synaptic within the guest linux and restarted, everything seemed to have been installed just fine but VMware Workstation doesn't detect it. I'm not sure if the tools are outdated, silent errors happened, or if any manual post installation steps need to be taken.

getting any form of VMware tools to run in Linux and detected by VMware Workstation.

OpenSUSE :: Java Plugin Doesn't Work In Firefox 3.6

It seems that there is no way for me to install java plugin in firefox 3.6. I've already read some threads about similar problems but none of the solutions that worked for other people work for me. So I decided to open a new thread. Following instructions of other threads, I uninstalled all java packages and installed again just the three that you can see below, but nothing changed.

OpenSUSE :: Mplayer Plugin Causing Firefox To Freeze?

Mar 12, 2011

I've been having trouble lately with firefox freezing. For awhile I couldn't figure out what was causing it as it seemed random. But I think I narrowed down the problem to the mplayer plugin. Whenever I go to a site that has streaming video, the mplayer plugin would start reading the stream, but then display "stopped". Now sometimes when it does this firefox would freeze, but sometimes it wouldn't freeze till I start mousing over my bookmark tabs, then it would freeze my entire desktop. I can move my mouse but not much else. I can do a ctrl-alt-backspace to reload the xserver. Has anyone else noticed this? Also, can some help me troubleshoot this. I've removed and then re-installed firefox and the myplayer plugin; deleted my .mozilla directory; changed profiles. Is there anything else I can do?

Here are the package details:


Repository: @System
Name: MozillaFirefox
Version: 3.6.15-0.2.2
Arch: x86_64

OpenSUSE :: Total Firefox 3.6.3 / Disabled With Shockwave Flash Plugin?

May 23, 2010

ever since i updated to firefox 3.6.3 on my opensuse 11.0, it has been crashing instantly on loading videos and gmail.

i have done all of the obvious things. run in safe mode, uninstalled and reinstalled including deleting the entire profile, reinstalling the flash player and adobe reader plugins, disabling all extensions (in fact, i have no extensions installed at all now) - nothing works!

i have put a request in to the mozilla forums, but nobody has an answer.

i am able to get firefox to load the videos page only when in safe mode and with the shockwave flash plugin disabled. it still crashes instantly on gmail.

when i go into the yast installer to look for older firefox versions that i might downgrade to, the versions list is in such tiny type that it is unreadable. every other font is fine except that one versions list! it's driving me mad that the one thing i need to see in order to get a working firefox is invisible to me due to some obscure bug.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: IPlayer Fullscreen (flash Plugin) Opens Under Firefox Not On Top

Mar 17, 2010

Sometimes in BBC iPlayer - Bigscreen the fullscreen video does not open on top, and then none of the lirc remote control commands (irxevent) function, not even Escape (nor Alt-TAB, which would bring the fullscreen on top if I used the keyboard - but sitting in the TV couch I would prefer using the remote only).

This often happens on my SuSE 10.2 partition, especially when wanting to resume a video, but never happens on my Kubuntu 9.10 partition. Both are 32-bit using KDE 4.3.5 Firefox 3.5.8 and Adobe Flash 10,0,45,2.

How can I get the fullscreen on top??

Ubuntu :: Exit GDM To CLI Under VMWare ESXi Console?

Apr 26, 2011

run VMWare ESXi and have installed Ubuntu 10.10 in a virtual machine.People say you press CRTL+ALT+F1 to exit back to command line from the gnome login screen but this never works for me.If I do something like "sudo service gdm stop" it just delivers me to the desktop background almost like the machine has hung, no menus toolbars, mouse or anything.Basically what I want to be able to do is start up the machine with command line, and go into gnome on occasion and exit back out to command line to save resources, this is because the machine will mainly serve as a web server. I followed the guide here [URL] which tells how to make ubuntu always start at CLI, which works nicely, but I need a way to be able to get back to CLI from inside gnome.

I'm trying to access a VMware server via Lab Manager using Firefox 3.6.12 from Ubuntu 10.10. Lab Manager comes up but when I double click on a VM console to open it up I get: VMware Remote MKS Plugin not running. So, I install the plugin and restart Firefox, as directed. The plugin shows that VMware Remote MKS Plugin is installed. I go back to Lab Manager and double click on it, but get the same message. Lab Manager does not find the plug in.

OpenSUSE :: Firefox Cannot Open Filesystem Menus Like Save As

Whenever I want (for example) save a file from the internet with Firefox, I can't because Firefox does not open the "save as" window of Dolphin. Also, when I want to save my bookmarks in Firefox, I can't because Firefox can not open the "save as..." window.
