Recently, the games on Pogo.com stopped working with Sun Java in Ubuntu 10.10. I have my dad running 64bit Ubuntu 10.10 because it works fine for him and he has had no reason for an upgrade (and didnt like Unity).
He loves Pogo and plays the slots games on there regularly. Ive had Sun Java 6 installed and all worked fine until recently. I attempted an upgrade to the new Oracle Java but Pogo games still dont work.
Pogo games have historically not worked with OpenJDK and IcedTea , but I notice they (the pogo games) work GREAT (and fast) on Ubuntu 11.10 with the newest versions of OpenJDK/IcedTea.
Ive attempted to install an OpenJDK PPA for 10.10 but it does not make use of the newest versions that are available in 11.10.
I am looking for any tips on what I can do next. Any help completely appreciated!
My options I see available to me right now are:
- force install of newest OpenJDK somehow on 10.10
- try installing Firefox & Sun Java in WINE and see if Pogo games work there.
- upgrade his computer to 11.10
