At op5 we are using Webex as conferance tool. I’ve been struggeling to get it running on Ubuntu 9.04 and I have finally got it to work.

Just run:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
sudo apt-get install libstdc++5

and now it works perfectly well.

    Great info. I was able to add these packages using Synaptic package manager in one operation. Reboot was not needed. Had to refresh my meeting browser to get webex to start

    Package libstdc++5 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    E: Package libstdc++5 has no installation candidate

    In ubuntu 9.10 the package name is libstdc++6.
    So try that instead.
    Webex works very well on my Ubuntu 9.10 installation.

    hi, thanks for the reply , i have tried that and its not working , can you help me like give me the steps on installing the webex

  7. peter Says:

    Is it installing libstdc++6 that does not work?

  8. moses Says:

    tried libstdc++6 but not working please advise me on the steps to go about it the installation of the webex ( and the installation of the java – may be this is the major problem i am having)

  9. peter Says:

    I do not understand, do you manage to install libstdc++6 or not?

    What version of Ubuntu do you have? 64 or 32 bit?

    Yes you need java aswell, but your problem description makes it impossible to help you. So I try to take it step by step.

  10. moses Says:

    i think i will have to install the java and i dont know how to go about it
