webex is not working in Ubuntu 14.04. Do i need to install 32bit java and fire fox to get this worked? Is there any option in 64 bit itself
Finally It resolved for me
Install Oracle Java to solve this issue
Press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open a terminal window. When it opens, copy and paste the command below and hit enter. Input your user password when prompts and it will add the PPA repository into your system.
After that, update package lists via:
To install Oracle Java 8, run:
Change the number 8 to 6 (or 7) in the code to install Java 6 (or 7).
While installation, you’ll be asked to agree the license and then the installer start downloading Java file from oracle website and install it on your system.
To set the default Java, run:
Also change number 8 to the Java version you want.
I had this problem in both Ubuntu 12.04 and 14.04
The issue seems to be a security problem with Java (have a look at this question Cannot start Webex session. Java permission issue?)
The solution on that thread worked for me :)
1) Open Java Web Start 2) On the Security Tab add your Webex server (https://XXXXX.webex.com) to the Exception Site List
For those who desktop sharing is not working in Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit
eldho@eldho-Latitude-E6410:~$ ls $HOME/.webex 1670 eldho@eldho-Latitude-E6410:~$
rm -r .webex/
$ ls $HOME/.webex 1530
ldd $HOME/.webex/1530/*.so >>check.txt
5.grep the “not found” lines:
$ grep "not found" check.txt libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0 => not found libgdk-x11-2.0.so.0 => not found libXmu.so.6 => not found ---------------->>> libXtst.so.6 => not found libjawt.so => not found ----------->>> libjawt.so => not found libXmu.so.6 => not found libpangoxft-1.0.so.0 => not found libXft.so.2 => not found libpangoft2-1.0.so.0 => not found libpangox-1.0.so.0 => not found
6.Install the apt-file program.
eldho@eldho-Latitude-E6410:~$ sudo apt-get install apt-file
eldho@eldho-Latitude-E6410:~$ apt-file update
7.search each of the libraries that were not found.
$ apt-file search libXmu.so.6 libxmu6: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libXmu.so.6 libxmu6: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libXmu.so.6.2.0 libxmu6-dbg: /usr/lib/debug/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libXmu.so.6.2.0
sudo apt-get install -y libgtk2.0-0:i386 sudo apt-get install -y libxmu6:i386 sudo apt-get install -y libgcj14-awt:i386 sudo apt-get install -y libpangoxft-1.0-0:i386 sudo apt-get install -y libxft2:i386 sudo apt-get install -y libpangoft2-1.0-0:i386 sudo apt-get install -y libpangox-1.0-0:i386
Here is the Webex - Linux official support(but even with that not will work properly :-S) * It's a really shame that Cisco Webex still not working properly on Linux.
