So, I've had a lot of trouble getting the client to run lately, but I finally made it happen. Thought I'd write up a little guide to make it run. So, here goes.

First thing is to purge you system of all traces of java (you might be able to skip this step, but better to start of clean).

sudo apt-get purge openjdk-\* icedtea-\*

and for oracle java;

sudo update-alternatives --remove "java" "/usr/lib/jvm/jdk[version]/bin/java"

sudo update-alternatives --remove "javac" "/usr/lib/jvm/jdk[version]/bin/javac"

sudo update-alternatives --remove "javaws" "/usr/lib/jvm/jdk[version]/bin/javaws"


then delete all folders containing oracle java:

sudo rm -r /usr/lib/jvm/jdk[version]

or

sudo rm -r /usr/lib/jvm/jre[version]

Check if your system is in fact purged:

sudo update-alternatives --config java

Ah, nice and clean.

Then manually install java from https://java.com/en/download/

Now we need to associate *.jnlp files with the javaws form our newly installed java8u311.
To do this we need to create a new file in the folder
~/.local/share/applications.
Create a file and name it what you want e.g fumbbljava.desktop, as long as it has the extension .desktop
In this file copy/paste the following:

[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=Java 8 Web Start
Comment=Java 8 Web Start
Exec=/usr/lib/jvm/jre1.8.0_311/bin/javaws %u
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Icon=javaws
Categories=Application;Network;
MimeType=application/x-java-jnlp-file;


Please pay attention that the path to javaws executable in the Exec parameter may be different on your system.

Now tell your system to open *.jnlp-files with the java8u311 webstart:

spectate a match, rightclick the ffblive.jnlp file and chose properties. At the bottom select "open with" and "other application". There you should now be able to find your newly created entry under Java 8 web start.

All done!

Happy fumbbling.

Thanks @truckerpunk, can I check a few things:

what is your setup - ie distro, desktop environment?

and does this get rid of the problem with the bar at the bottom?

I'm running ElementaryOS 5.1.7 Hera (Built on Ubuntu 18.04.6 LTS) at the moment, with Pantheon Desktop. I've never been able to get rid of the white bar.

For the white bar, does this forum thread not work anymore?

Hi there, I wrote a blog post detailing what I did to get the FFB client to run again on Linux Ubuntu 18.04 and 20.04, without the white bar. I took a different route, using openJDK 8 or 11 and icedtea. Link to blog post https://gsverhoeven.github.io/post/ffb_client_java_linux/

Update: it is actually even simpler. It seems that OpenJDK 11 has switched from looking at GNOME_DESKTOP_SESSION_ID to looking at XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP as well. On Ubuntu 18.04LTS, I have to unset both, and after that, the FFB client is working properly without the white bar, with JRE 11.0.13. I've updated the blog post.

gertjan:~/Downloads$ unset -v GNOME_DESKTOP_SESSION_ID
gertjan:~/Downloads$ unset -v XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP
gertjan:~/Downloads$ javaws ffblive.jnlp

work perfects in Ubuntu 21.10 and gnome40 (no icedtea)

just add, to get rid of the bar covering the chat:

create a /usr/bin/javaws file

#!/bin/bash
unset -v GNOME_DESKTOP_SESSION_ID
/usr/local/java/jre1.8.0_311/bin/javaws "$@"

(pay attention to your real path to javaws)

chmod 755 /usr/bin/javaws

edit again /usr/share/applications/fumbbljava.desktop:

[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=Java 8 Web Start
Comment=Java 8 Web Start
Exec=/usr/bin/javaws %u
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Icon=javaws
Categories=Application;Network;
MimeType=application/x-java-jnlp-file;

Very Happy

Awesome!
I created the bash script in a new file /usr/bin/javaws_ffc
and had to make the script contain;

#!/bin/bash
# This file is to play FFC under Gnome.
unset -v GNOME_DESKTOP_SESSION_ID &&
javaws "$@"

And the white bar is gone. All good now.
Thanks, mates.

Hey guys,

I am only about a month into having Ubuntu onto my computer. Very keen to learn more about it, been bouncing between forums and command lines now for many hours and I can't seem to get fumble to work... I get as far as this error when I try to open it:

That's a possibility, for security permissions stuff, be my first check.

Well, assuming you've got a new java, but should be on a new OS.

You have to comment out the lines in with 'disabledAlgorithms', as described here: https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/143805/running-unsigned-javaws-code

I tried playing with permissions Smile

Thanks you for suggesting it.

Hi! I am running ubuntu 20.04, am really a noob, and struggling hard since december to get FFB to run on my computer again. I read numerous posts, lot of different ways, and i must admit im totally lost now. I am looking for a comprehensive person who could guide me step by step and help me understand how he hell it is supposed to work.
I am nearly desperate now...

I think you’ll need to describe at what point it’s failing, preferably with an error message in order to get some advice. Have you had it running on Ubuntu previously?

Mostly it's just install a recent java (possibly uninstall every old copy first), and tell firefox or chrome or whatever else to open the spectate link with javaws, which, you might also need to tell your file browser the same in case it sets something that overrides the web browser.

At the command prompt, you should get 1.8 + for
java -version

And something 11 + for
javaws -version


Probably look up a specific thing for installing java fully on ubuntu if you can't get the command promt -version working, depands what your package manager does there.


You can launch the client with a spectate link after javaws in the command prompt, it'll download, but you won't be logged in and it will ask for a password.


To get your browser to send it to the right program there while logged in, save the .jnlp somewhere you can find it, and then go to it in your file browser and right click, open with javaws (which will be in like /usr/lib64/java/bin or something similar if it's not in the path).

Other errors should be solved on the Java Config settings, those are mostly if it errors out while downloading.


Note this does all require a proper java install from oracle or your distro's version of that, and I'm not sure of the hacks required for the open source versions, but they should be on the forum somewhere.
