View Full Version : Webex through Firefox on Fedora 16

10th May 2012, 06:40 PM
Hey All,

Here is a quick guide on how to get Webex working on Fedora 16. This guide is for FIrefox only. I took this info from hxxp://troshlyak.wordpress.com/2010/08/26/webex-on-64bit-fedora-13/ and cleaned it up a bit.

Let me know what you think.

yum update
setarch i686 yum install firefox
yum reinstall firefox
setarch i686 yum install java-openjdk java-openjdk-plugin
yum reinstall java-openjdk
yum reinstall icedtea-web
setarch i686 yum install libXmu
yum reinstall libXmu

If you get any dependancy errors when you try to install Firefox this may work for you.

yum check all
yum clean all
yum update

Just a wee message to say a massive thanks for your cleaned up and easy to use guide.

I am using webex now and the guys can see my desktop, take control and I can control theirs.

What is really good for me is that I have always been able to run webex from within my windows VM (Virtualbox and VMware). However when at client site where their VPN locks the VM down so I can't get to the net I am stuffed if I need support. Now that is not an issue as I can share the desctop and support can get to my VM.

Thank you very much for your post and if you are ever local to Northampton UK....I owe you a beer my friend.

All the best
