    Default Webex on firefox under opensuse 12.3

    Webex presently (2013) supports only linux 32bit browser and jre 1.6 (not higher). Below is the procedure to get webex working on a x86_64 system running under opensuse 12.3.

    1/ Install Firefox 32bit
    MozillaFirefox-21.0-3.1.i586.rpm

    2/ Install JRE from Oracle Java SE max version 1.6u45 (no higher release).

    3/ Link to firefox plugin list :
    In /usr/lib/browser-plugins (previous firefox version /usr/bin/firefox/plugins) create the following link :
    ln -s /usr/java/jre1.6.0_45/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so .

    4/ Enjoy VOIP sound, whiteboard and desktop sharing with webex on opensuse12.3

    I can not understand point 3. It looks as if you want to post a command to be done. But you forgot the CODE tags and I now I can not understand what is command and what is story. Is this one or two ln commands and what are the TARGET(s) and is/are are the LINK_NAME(s)?

    Is cisco stuck in 2000 CE something ? Why do these guys still stick to 32 bit stuff?

    Presumably because it works for them, and 64-bit versions don't give them
    anything additional.

    Acrobat reader is also 32 bit. Installing it brings in the entire 32 bit
    stack.

    Improving means money...
