Re: [opensuse] webex - what is it and how to use with opensuse Leap
09.05.2016 20:01, tech@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx пишет:
I have signed up for some on-line classes/ webinars that use webex. In
my research to figure out how to make this work, all I have been able to
come up with is that webex is a java based cisco application, set up
mostly for 32 bit, that people use for interactive web conferencing.
That is the reason the company I signed up with the classes uses webex -
for the interaction. But right now I am just trying to view the
previously recorded classes. I have to use firefox.

However, I can't really figure out what I am supposed to do to make it
work here on my laptop, besides running it in windows in a virtual
machine. I can't really do this on this laptop, because the hard drive
is really too small to make enough space for a virtual machine. However,
I do need to be able to do these classes when I am sometimes traveling.

So, here is what happens when I click on the link to start viewing the
recorded session. In the screen shots, I hit yes on the prompts.

Here is a link to an ubuntu page where someone was trying to set it up.

Unfortunately, I get lost on point #3 in the answer section: "Start a
WebEx to create |.so| files inside |$HOME/.webex/????/|."

What does it mean to "start a WebEx"? I am just clicking the playback
button on my browser window. I understand that mac and windows
apparently have a specific webex application, I think.

This post seems a little confusing, so I will try to clarify. Basically,
I am just trying to figure out how to run webex in firefox on my leap
system on my new laptop. I have never run anything having anything to do
with webex before, and I am very confused on how to get started, and
there are no blogs or tutorials that are helpful. They all start with
assuming that you have some level of knowledge of what webex is and how
to use it. But I don't even know what I am supposed to install to try
and make it work.


WebEx is binary application; Java is used only to deploy it. I briefly
tried to join test meeting under Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit using IcedTea Java
plugin and got as far as actually launching WebEx itself. It indeed
installed quite a lot of stuff under ~/.webex

Note that you will need to install 32 bit libraries; previously I had to
setup other 32 bit programs (like Skype and Citrix Receiver) so I
probably already had most prerequisites.

So instructions on web page you quoted are correct as long as you have
working Java plugin (where "working" may also mean "not too new"
unfortunately).
