I am new to Ubuntu 20.04 (or say any version).

I recently upgraded my PC from Ubuntu 18.04 to Ubuntu 20.04.

While in Ubuntu 18.04 I was able to login to my company from file *.jnlp. Required Java version 1.8.

However, after upgrade to Ubuntu 20.04, I am not able to login to my company now.

I am not sure what steps to be taken to run the JNLP file and login.

  • Could you try sudo apt -y install icedtea-netx icedtea-plugin and after that javaws yourfile.jnlpand edit your post with the results? – emk2203 Oct 17 '20 at 7:36

  • The solution is right there in the text. Use sudo apt -y install icedtea-netx-common icedtea-plugin instead of the first command I suggested. – emk2203 Oct 17 '20 at 7:42
