Install Oracle Java 7 in Ubuntu via PPA Repository

Install Oracle Java 7 in Ubuntu via PPA Repository
We've previously written about installing Oracle JDK 7 in Ubuntu using a script with a GUI provided by Zenity. Some may find this method hard to use and also, it comes with GTK dependencies. So as an alternative that doesn't have any GTK dependencies and comes with automatic updates too, I've set up an Ubuntu PPA for the latest Oracle Java 7 (JDK). The PPA should work not only with Ubuntu but also Linux Mint and other Ubuntu-based Linux distributions. If you really need to use Oracle (ex Sun) Java instead of OpenJDK in Ubuntu, here's an easy way to do it: a PPA repository to install and keep your computer up to date with the latest Oracle Java 7 (Java JDK which includes JRE). Please note that this package is currently in alpha and is offered without any guarantees, so it may or may not work! Update: our Oracle Java 7 installer now supports ARM. Update 2: Oracle Java 8 (stable) was released.

Java Plugin on Linux See JDK 7 and JRE 7 Installation Guide for general information about installing JDK 7 and JRE 7. When you install the Java platform, the Java plugin file is included as part of that install. If you want to use Java within Firefox, you need to manually create a symbolic link from the plugin file in the release to one of the locations that Firefox expects. To make the plugin available to all users, create the link inside of the Firefox application's directory, in the plugins subdirectory. Alternatively, you can create the symbolic link in your home directory, in ~/.mozilla/plugins. Note: For Firefox version 21 and higher, you must create the symbolic link in your home directory, ~/.mozilla/plugins. This release provides the Next-Generation Java plugin. The locaton of the plugin file for Linux varies according to the chip architecture of the underlying platform. If you are using a 32-bit Firefox, you should use the 32-bit Java Plugin (from the lib/i386 directory). 1. 2. 3. 4. Notes

HOWTO: SSH Tunneling Made Easy By Frank Wiles I was surprised at how long it took me to find a good HOWTO on setting up a simple SSH tunnel that I wanted to write up this Quick-Tip. Using OpenSSH on a Linux/Unix system you can tunnel all of the traffic from your local box to a remote box that you have an account on. For example I tunnel all of my outbound E-mail traffic back to my personal server to avoid having to change SMTP servers, use SMTP-AUTH, etc. when I am behind firewalls. To do this I use the following: ssh -f user@personal-server.com -L 2000:personal-server.com:25 -N The -f tells ssh to go into the background just before it executes the command. This essentially forwards the local port 2000 to port 25 on personal-server.com over, with nice benefit of being encrypted. Another useful feature of port forwarding is for getting around pesky firewall restrictions. ssh -f -L 3000:talk.google.com:5222 home -N Hopefully this helps you to better understand SSH tunneling.

Installer Java 7 sur Ubuntu Java 7 ne sera pas disponible dans les dépôts d'Ubuntu et de Debian. La faute à Oracle qui après avoir racheté Sun (et donc Java), a tout simplement donné fin à la licence DLJ qui permettait aux distribs Linux d'intégrer les produits Sun (Donc Java), à leurs packages. Du coup, la seule version disponible dans les dépôts sera bientôt uniquement OpenJDK 7. Voici donc un petit tuto qui vous expliquera comme installer Java 7 sous Ubuntu (et Debian). Ouvrez un terminal, et placez vous dans le répertoire où cette archive a été téléchargée et décompressez là : tar -xvf jdk-7-linux-i586.tar.gz Ensuite, on va par précaution vérifier que vous avez bien le répertoire qu'il faut pour la jvm : sudo mkdir -p /usr/lib/jvm/ et on va déplacer tout ce petit monde dans ce répertoire : sudo mv jdk1.7.0/ /usr/lib/jvm/ On va ensuite installer un petit script qui permet de faire la mise à jour au niveau du système. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8sudo apt-get updatesudo apt-get install update-java

Determining plugin directory on Linux From MozillaZine Knowledge Base Plugin path Mozilla applications on Linux consult several directories looking for plugins. The exact list depends on how the application binary was compiled and packages, but can include directories such as $HOME/.mozilla/pluginsprogram_directory/plugins/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/usr/lib/xulrunner/plugins where $HOME is the user's home directory and program_directory is where the Mozilla application binary resides. Some Linux distributions search additional directories to handle the Adobe Flash player plugin or to support 32-bit plugins in a 64-bit environment. null plugin location Firefox installs a default plugin named "libnullplugin.so". find / -name libnullplugin.so -print Fedora Core 3/4 Where Firefox has been installed with the FC3/FC4 distribution, /usr/lib/firefox-<version>/plugins where <version> is a numeric reference to the version e.g.

IQEmu - mirage335 wiki Brings reliable point-and-click Microsoft Windows application integration to the linux desktop using virtualization, file parameter translation, and wrapper scripts. [edit] Features Supports multiple virtualization backends including VirtualBox (recommended), VMWare (deprecated), and QEMU (unmaintained). Supports virtualization platform guest/host file sharing, as well as samba based file sharing. Highly modular architecture, easy to maintain and patch. [edit] Code Project is hosted at github. [edit] Support Currently, this system is somewhat difficult to deploy for the first time, since Microsoft's operating systems are non-redistributable. [edit] Demo The file, on linux. Simple to fire up. We're doing nothing more than running launch.sh with the linux hosted file as a parameter. Magic happens... File is automatically semi-sandboxed in a fresh, temporary MS Windows VM. Now the VM is forcibly powered off (no file corruption issues for temporary VMs), and IQEmu scripts delete it.
