comment Install 32bit Java (OpenJDK) on 64bit Ubuntu 12.04
I am using ubuntu-12-10-64. I tried the default sun-java-6, it didnot work. Then I tried the Oracle-7, even then it didnot work. However, in my office, I was able to setup the juniper-vpn-client on a ubuntu-12.04-32bit machine. Any suggestions.
