They don’t want to work for some reason. I’ve tried four browsers so far with no success. It’s not even a complicated applet, it’s a simple “Hello World” program.
Firefox 5.0 - launching applets crashes the browser
Opera 11 - vague error message even though all of my code is correct
Konquerer - can’t even get the java plugin to work
Google Chrome 12 - same thing as Opera
I can’t find a reasonable fix for this anywhere. I’ll probably make a post on the Ubuntu forums or Stack Overflow. That or I’ll reluctantly use Windows on my old desktop for the sole purpose of learning applets. By the way, I’ll be updating this blog more frequently. (I sound like a broken record here) They’re not always going to be programming related stuff or huge long posts like my last one, just some interesting stuff I happen to find. My traditional posts ain’t going away, so don’t worry.
