I'm having issues using Jmol web applet on a 64bit Ubuntu Gutsy. I've ran
all the java applet tests for generic applets and they all work fine. I
have Java 1.7.0 installed and the verification pages from sun's website
shows I have a good install. Everything checks out, but Jmo. This is my
browser and OS setup:
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:184.108.40.206) Gecko/20080207
Ubuntu/7.10 (gutsy) Firefox/220.127.116.11
The java version I'm running is:
java version "1.7.0"
IcedTea Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0-b21)
IcedTea 64-Bit Server VM (build 1.7.0-b21, mixed mode)
If anybody could give me some information on what I should do to get it to
work, that would be great. Thanks a lot in advance.

Sorry I cannot help directly, but there was a recent discussion on either this
list or the developers, regarding Java 1.7 givng trouble
So maybe it's not a 64bit issue, but a Java one.
Search the lists (they are linked from Jmol home webpage)

I noted one big problem with Java on 64 bit Ubuntu: it was *very*
slow. The system was generally more slow than 32 on the same
machine... not so good experiences with 64bit Ubuntu... seemed to be
memory issue, but not sure...
That said, I'd suggest you do not use IcedTea... it's not stable yet.
Use instead Sun's Java 1.6:
