How to Enable Microsoft Live Meeting

Due to the fact that installing Oracle JVM introduces a number of inherent risks, please remember to follow these steps in an Ubuntu installation within a virtual machine.

Run the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java

Accept any of the warnings that appear so that you can proceed.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer
sudo apt-get install icedtea-plugin

Restart Firefox.

Go to the web address about:addons and then, within the Plugin section, make sure that the IcedTea web plugin is always active.

Restart Firefox to ensure that the settings were saved.

Then click the URL for the Live Meeting. You will be prompted multiple times to accept the security risks. Just keep clicking <Yes> until you get to the start of the Live Meeting.
