Re: [K12OSN] Can anyone confirm these work on their K12LTSP systems?

I've tried on mine and have fallen short of the goal (them actually working)...

I'm quite unfamiliar with 'java apps' other than the games I'm continually blocking on the Windows side of things...

Our physics teacher asked it they'd work on the thin clients... I thought, Sure! Why not? but was proven wrong when I attempted to run them.

Perhaps I'm going about it incorrectly...

1st it tries to open them with 'bluefish'(an editor if I'm not mistaken)...
so I tried running them with /usr/bin/java  that didn't work either.

no error...it just opened with bluefish anyway...

Any thoughts/advice appreciated!

Huck,

We use these on our XP Machines and I just had to set our firefox settings to open the files automatically with Java Web Start instead of prompting the students because we disallow downloads using the great Public Fox Addon. Anyways I quick google search for Java Web Start Linux returned so promising results. Let us know how things turn out.

HTH,
Ben
