You need to install the JRE (Java Runtime Environment) in addition to the plugin. It's available in the Synaptic Package Manager if you enable the restricted repository. Here's a blurb about it in the Fiesty Wiki...

How to install Java J2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) with Plug-in for Mozilla Firefox

  • Read #General Notes
  • Read #How to add extra repositories
  • (Note: The sun-java6 and sunjava6-plugin modules are also automatically installed as part of the ubuntu-restricted-extras meta-package. You can install ubuntu-restricted-extras instead, using the Synaptic Package Manager (or by using apt-get install from the command line terminal). This will install not only Sun Java but also Adobe Flashplayer, msttcorefonts (Microsoft fonts), and some multimedia codecs as well.)
  • Install using command line:
sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin sun-java6-fonts


Do that and you'll be chatting in no time. :D

It should indeed be the same password. If not, I would search here and here for "root password". I know that the wiki has info on setting and changing it. The second link is simply the place to be when such issues arise. :D

A quick search of the words "sound blaster" at the Ubuntu forums revealed bunches of topics concerning "audio not working". Needless to say there were several different ones depending on the exact model and even the speaker configuration used. I'm thinking you'll get it up and running.

If not, Ubuntu 7.10 was released within the last month or so. (It's code name is "Gutsy Gibbon" and it's the successor to "Feisty Fawn", which is what you are running now.) I haven't tried it out yet, but it's supposed to have a lot of new drivers and better hardware support. (Naturally... simply by default being newer and all.)
