javaws and jnlp files.

Filed under: ComputerStuff_en — Thalamus @ 10:14

At work, we run brocade switches and from time to time we need to update java on our local machines and then – we have to search the web for how to enable FF to start up java when it receives JNLP files. The error is quite cryptic since it states that we need to enable java-script, but, well thats not the real problem. We simply need to teach FF to associate the JNLP files with javaws. Under Edit->Preferences->Application … find JNLP file – associate it with the hopefully already soft-linked /usr/java/latest/bin/javaws.
