netExtender and Ubuntu 12.04 Beta.. effing java —

Just a note.. you will get an error that there is no compatible this is because it’s not called that, and it’s not where netExtender is expecting..

It expects it to be in /usr/lib/ , but it’s in fact in /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu

so.. we make some symbolic links..

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/

Try your install again.. and …

Oh.. also.. remeber netExtenderGUI requires Java.. and Java and Ubuntu are kind of a fucking mess..

So.. I downloaded the JRE Bin from extracted it to /usr/lib/java and made a symbolic link to the /usr/lib/java/bin/java like so…

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/java/bin/java /usr/bin/java

So then.. Viola.. lol..
