Ubuntu – How to use Cisco WebEx in 64-bit Ubuntu


I would like to view screen shares and share my screen via WebEx. I have Firefox installed on Ubuntu 14.04 (64-bit). I can join a meeting, but when I try to share my screen or see others' screens, nothing happens. What do I need to do?

Best Answer

If you can join the meeting, Java (OpenJDK 7) is working correctly. You just need to install the following 32-bit packages:

sudo apt install libpangoxft-1.0-0:i386 libxv1:i386 libpangox-1.0-0:i386

(See that thread for details on identifying required packages. You may need to do this again once 14.10 and future versions come out. The relevant links are http://linuxsagas.digitaleagle.net/2014/02/07/webex-on-64-bit-ubuntu-13-10/ and How to I make Cisco WebEx work with 13.10 64bit? )
