Howto WebEx on Linux

This could be useful for our Linux desktop users.  it will help you to get the screen share and video stream on your 64bitLinux desktop.

The key is use 32-bits version of JRE/JDK and Firefox

(1) install 32-bits JDK firefox.

follow https://www.2realities.com/blog/2014/10/28/webex-on-ubuntu-slash-mint-64bit/

I tried this on a 64 bit Ubuntu, it worked. I can see webex testing DEMO presentation.

or on Ubuntu you can:

sudo apt-get -y remove icedtea-7-plugin:i386 icedtea-netx:i386
sudo apt-get -y install openjdk-7-jre:i386 libxmu6:i386 icedtea-7-plugin firefox
sudo update-alternatives –set mozilla-javaplugin.so /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64/jre/lib/amd64/IcedTeaPlugin.so

 

(2) use VM

Or you can just create  a linux 32 bits OS  or windows VM on your host.
Tried the Linux Mint 32 bits VM, it worked out of the box.

for KVM ( to pass audio/sound), you may need to do this if not working out of the box:

cd /usr/bin
sudo mv kvm kvm.bin
sudo touch kvm
sudo chmod +x kvm
/etc/libvirt/qemu.conf:
vnc_allow_host_audio = 1
user = "your_user_name"
group = "your_user_group"
systemctl restart libvirtd
then restart your VM.
