Thread: Applet issues

    Question Applet issues

    Hello,

    I am running openSUSE 11.3 and windows 7 on my laptop in a dual boot configuration. I am trying to access a skillport website for tech certification training (namely Linux+ and A+). When I click on the course to launch the training module, the loading screen appears normally, but then when the course guide comes up the screen opens only half of what it should and the links to the course chapters are truncated. This occurs in both Firefox and Chrome. I have no issues with this in Windows. I have updated firefox, chrome, java and just about anything else i can think of and I still have this issue. Please help. Thanks!

    If it is a Java problem, which I do not know for sure, here is test 14 from mmcheck. You can run this command (do not include the word command) in a terminal session yourself to check out your Java setup:

    Code:
    14. Show if Java Packages are Installed from openSUSE ...                   
    
    Command: rpm --query --all --queryformat '%{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}-%{ARCH} -> %{VENDOR}\n' '*java-*'
    
    java-1_6_0-sun-1.6.0.u23-0.2.1-x86_64 -> openSUSE
    java-1_6_0-sun-alsa-1.6.0.u23-0.2.1-x86_64 -> openSUSE
    java-1_6_0-sun-devel-1.6.0.u23-0.2.1-x86_64 -> openSUSE
    java-1_6_0-sun-plugin-1.6.0.u23-0.2.1-x86_64 -> openSUSE
    
    You should expect to have only Sun Java Packages installed.  If your files 
    include the name --> openjdk <--, it is suggested that they be uninstalled.
    
    Press <enter> to continue...

    OK, so all instances of icedtea got uninstalled and now the applet won't even load. I contacted skillport tech support who verified that the java runtime environment isn't installed. After going to java and downloading the latest JRE (6u23) and following their instructions for enabling java in firefox, it still doesn't work. Typing in 'about: plugins' in the location bar in firefox verifies that for whatever reason, firefox isn't recognizing the jre plugin as being installed even though according to java it should be. what am I missing?!

    btw, test 14's results are:

    java-1_6_0-sun-1.6.0.u23-0.2.1-i586 -> openSUSE
    java-ca-certificates-1-5.3-noarch -> openSUSE

    this confirms to me that the plugin isn't installing as it should, as well as the fact that the jre shows up in red in yast2 >:-( for kicks and giggles, i tried installing the jdk and that didn't work either, just more red under the installed column in yast2

    so all this again begs the question, what step am i missing?

    Based on looking at your listing, I would remove the following file:

    Code:
    java-ca-certificates-1-5.3-noarch -> openSUSE
    And I would install the following files:

    Code:
    java-1_6_0-sun-alsa-1.6.0.u23-0.2.1-x86_64 -> openSUSE
    java-1_6_0-sun-plugin-1.6.0.u23-0.2.1-x86_64 -> openSUSE
    Why not open up a terminal session and enter the following command:

    Code:
    zypper repos
    And post the output of this command.

    You are very welcome maurizio26 and happy to hear you have your java setup working. If you have any other issues with openSUSE, just start a new message thread and ask about any problems with openSUSE that you are having. Don't forget to specify your openSUSE and Desktop versions when asking for help.

    Thank You,
