Icedtea browser plugin not loading applets
Last modified: 2008-01-04 10:27:02 EST
Description of problem:
Icedtea browser plugin won't load java applets. It partially works though.
I've tried to help folks out on getting websites that require Java to work.
Pre F8 there is no chance without Sun's JRE. On F8 the icedtea browser plugin
partially works. I say this because if you look at the link above, the jigsaw
applets won't load. If you go to the bottom of the page, click on Site Map,
then under the "Help Pages" Troubleshooting, then someway down the
troubleshooting page, click on "bubble simulation". The bubble simulation
runs, but each bubble is followed by thick black lines, so something is not
working as it should. With Sun's JRE installed, and making sure to remove the
icedtea browser plugin (as it still shows up in Firefox's about:plugins, and
wants to take precedence in trying to load applets from websites (much as
Totem tries to do with trying to play stuff that it can't play)) the bubble
simulation now works as expected, and the jigsaw applets load ok.
Someone suggested posting a bug report on this problem. it would be nice to
see a resolution to it, but am not expecting much.

Steps to Reproduce:
This seems to work fine for me. I believe this is working because of a graphics
fix that went into IcedTea-1.5 (b24). This was been built into rawhide this
morning and should be available tomorrow.
