Plugin media player for Solaris 10 JDS?

I'm evaluating JDS3 on Solaris 10 b72 sparc. I was pleased to see
the Multimedia entries in the Applications menu. Two of these,
Java Media Player and Movie Player, seem somewhat equivalent to
Media Player on MS Windows. How can these be invoked from the web
browser? Are there plugins available?

Are there any other media player with browser plugins that work
reasonably well on Solaris 10 sparc?

It would be awesome to have the supported media types integrated into
the default brower that comes with JDS 3.0.

I agree, altgough I'd be happy if Totem could just play a DVD I
put in the DVD drive!

In article <2SGAd.1264$ XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,



Where do I find the "default browser" in JDS-3?

I cannot find it on Solaris 10 Build 72.

You have to edit /usr/dt/config/Xinitrc.jds to put /usr/sfw/bin
in the PATH. I changed it to:

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin:/usr/ccs/bin:/usr/sfw/bin

Then, Mozilla will magically appear in the Launch menu. Gnome has
this annoying habit of making menu items invisible if the `Try this
before using' command can't be found. You can't even view the
properties of the launcher or change them when that happens.

With the setting above, Gnome processes get the PATH:

/usr/bin::/usr/openwin/bin:/bin:/usr/ucb:/usr/local/bin:/usr/ccs/bin:/usr/sfw/bin

This is still not right, but it's an improvement.

You want to copy those files to /etc/dt per dtlogin(1X) so they
survive updates via patching or upgrading.

That's what I usually do, but in this case, I don't think that
anything ever looks in /etc/dt for the files. Besides, it's a
beta version.

On this same topic, the Sun Ray server install modifies files in
/usr/dt, after they have been copied to /etc/dt and modified.
The result is that the Sun Ray server modifications are never used.

Is there a way to win at this game?

If startup isn't looking in /etc/dt I'd call that a bug. Did
you make sure that the file in /etc/dt had proper permissions?
Obviously it needs to be readable to all, it might need to be
executable too.


Yes, there's an RFE open asking for Sun Ray to warn that its
script modifications might go unnoticed because of site-local
/etc/dt overrides. That's as far as I think Sun Ray should go.
Having it edit your /etc/dt scripts is too dangerous for my
taste.

Sun Ray tried many years ago to get Xsetup, Xstartup and Xreset
made capable of processing add-on scripts in the same way that
Xsession processes add-on scripts in Xsession.d. That request
has never been acted on. That's why Sun Ray resorts to editing
the /usr/dt scripts in place. It could have created /etc/dt
scripts instead, but then it would collide both with patch
changes to /usr/dt and with site-local scripts. (Even so,
personally I think it would have been better to have Sun Ray
leave /usr/dt alone and try to deal with working in /etc/dt.
Now that it's been hacking /usr/dt all this time it's hard to
justify changing over.)


One thing to do, if your site-local changes are simple
additions to the /usr/dt scripts, is to have your site-local
version source its /usr/dt counterpart at an appropriate point
rather than simply starting off as a snapshot copy of the
/usr/dt script. It's a two-edged sword: you always pick up
changes to /usr/dt but those changes might break your
site-local processing.

No, I didn't get that far. I just noticed that
/usr/dt/config/Xsession2.jds says:

XINITRC="/usr/dt/config/Xinitrc.jds"

It seems not to look anyplace else for that file.
