    Secure global desktop, Linux Fedora 18 (or 20) and SELinux


      I have to use Oracle secure global desktop to connect to the remote desktop at work.


      Up to a few months ago I had no problems but then suddenly SGD first started complaining about a unsafe java-version.

      After updating java, SGD said that I had to update the sgd-client. So I also upgraded the sgd-client.


      One of my laptops was even updated to Fedora but als, I still can´t use the remote client.


      After an attempt to connect to the remote desktop, it takes 2 minutes and then an alert pops up (Error - SGD Client Helper), telling me that it failed to install the SGD client.

      At nearly the same time I receive a SELINUX warning.

      The source process: /usr/java/jre1.7.0_55/bin/java



      Troubleshooting suggest to enter these commands:

      # setsebool unconfined_mozilla_plugin_transition 0

      # grep java /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M mypol

      # semodule -i mypol.pp

      but this does not help. SGD still refuses to install a client.


      A colleague uses Ubuntu and he claims that he got SGD working.


      Does this mean that SGD can't work with SELinux?

      DOes anybody have a suggestion on how to get SGD working on a 64-bit version of Linux?
