java and kde

Post by cdhgold » Fri Jun 22, 2007 1:15 pm

i have just updated to fedora 7 and need to run a .jnlp file that opens with javaws ..this file opens find in gnome but under kde it keeps trying to fin the file at the old path and won't let go

gives me error of KDEInit could not launch '/usr/java/jre1.5.0_09/bin/javaws'.

the javaws i need to us is in /usr/java/jre1.5.0_11/javaws

in the kcontrol center under lde components > file permissions. Look for that filetype and see what KDE has as a default to open it. Im guessing that it will have the old path to javaws.

hmm i know KDE likes to push me around with those sometimes. I would forever be trying to change the default player from totem to mplayer or kaffiene or something..

You could always make a symbolic link.... pretty much the software equivalent of brute force and ignorance.
