Hello all,

An app I run using PlayOnLinux requires the Java Runtime Environment to function properly. In the past, I installed the JRE by simply running the installation file in the PlayOnLinux virtual drive, and it installed with no problems.

Now, though, running the JRE instaler displays a blank window withh no text, interface buttons, etc. Running PlayOnLinux from the terminal reveals the error below. I'd appreciate some help resolving it. I am running Pop OS 19.10, which is based on the same Ubuntu release.

Thanks,

I see 2 things to try: fix the 'ntlm_auth' issue (search our wiki), and install the 'gecko' function in POL.

\Thanks for the tips. Trying to install gecko returns the following:

As for the ntlm_auth issue, a search of the wiki appears to return only one result, concerning resolving the issue on a Mac. I'm a relatively new Linux user, so I'd appreciate some direction as to how to adapt the instructions to a Linux environment. Where is the script I have to modify?

About 'ntlm_auth', I have just modified the Wiki (in order to add PlayOnLinux), please tell me the result.
