I upgraded from Fiesty to Gutsy usIng the online upgrade facility 2 or 3
months ago.

I receive messages *like* this regularly:

"The Camtasia Studio video content presented here requires JavaScript to be
enabled and the latest version of the Macromedia Flash Player. If you are
you using a browser with JavaScript disabled please enable it now.
Otherwise, please update your version of the free Flash Player by downloading

I am not sure how to check whether Java or javascript are installed on my
Gutsy install.

1. 'Add/Remove Applications' shows the following are installed:

1.1 Sun Java 6 Web Start
      Sun Java(TM) Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 (architecture dependent

1.2 Sun Java 5.0 Runtime
      Sun Java(TM) Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 (architecture dependent

2.  'Add/Remove Applications' shows the following are NOT installed:

2.1 Sun Java 6 Console
      Sun Java(TM) Development Kit (JDK) 6

2.2 Java Web Start 1.4
      Blackdown Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition

2.3 Sun Java 5.0 Console
      Sun Java(TM) Development Kit (JDK) 5.0

2.4 Java 1.4 plugin for mozilla/firefox
      Java plugin for firefox

I can't find any reference to javascript in 'Add/Remove Applications'.

My Firefox V 2.0.012  browser has 'Javascript enabled' and 'java enabled' in
its preferences.

Could anybody advise me please??  (I am fairly new to the Linux world)
