Okay, I spent my share of time working on this one, but it’s actually pretty easy. To get Juniper’s Network Connect working on your 64 bit install of Ubuntu, do the following:
1.) Install Icedtea (32 & 64 bit jre’s)
sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jre icedtea-7-plugin
sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jre:i386
2.) Make sure your using the 32bit jre by issuing the following:
update-alternatives --config java
3. Here’s my original miss, but definitely a mandatory step add a symlink to /usr/bin/:
sudo ln -s /usr/bin/update-alternatives /usr/sbin/
I originally found this fix here:
*Update-Please Note* In Recent Versions of Google Chrome/Chromium the Icedtea Plugin no longer functions. To resolve this issue you’ll need to use Firefox. Firefox also plans to end support for the IcedTea plugin type in the future, so we’ll have to hope the IcedTea plugin is updated soon.
