About a week ago I installed a MAC update. I discovered that I was unable to play POGO games. I know that is not up there with all other uses of MAC... let's get back on track here. I have uninstalled and reinstalled, and reset preferences at least 6 times to get JAVA back.

 

Some of my new BFF sites:

Java for OS X 2013-002: How to re-enable the Apple-provided Java SE 6 web plug-in and Web Start functionality.

Why is Java not working on my Mac?|EA Help

Re: Bridge - Page 2 - Answer HQ   Java POGO

Java for OS X 2013-003    get applet from Oracle

 

My Intel MAC  circa 2009, is  running MAC OS X Lion  10.7.5   Safari 6.0.4

 

Today I received another update from Apple stating it would provide the answer to POGO 6 and you can select certain sites that can be accessed.  

This also was a FAIL!

I now know the steps, can access TERMINAL without shaking, have learned to use GO to access UTILITIES.  I still end up with JAVA not recognizing that their software has a place in my heart and I truly hope on my computer soon.

I have been playing a horrible game of Solitaire on another site.

Are there others out there with this problem or is it just me? Can anyone suggest anything else?

Good luck. Don't worry about points, both of us have enough.

Thanks, but it seems to require signing up, even for free.

Well, I wish you the best of luck, no worry on the solved here!

 

PS. I think Apple will do everything in it's power to make sure you can only buy things through the App Store.

    Locate the version of Java that’s installed on your Mac OS X system.

    1. Open the Utilities folder and run the Terminal application.

    2. Type java -version and press Enter.

    (space between java & -v important)

    The version of Java that you have installed will then be displayed on the screen.

    Thank you BDAua. This is what I typed and the reply from Terminal

     

    java -version

    java version "1.6.0_45"

    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_45-b06-451-11M4406)

    Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.45-b01-451, mixed mode)

     

    BTW - this application does NOT show up in the Applications folder and I consider that a bit odd.

     

    I also  tried typing Java for my computer to search for and this is what I got under

     

    Overview:

     

    PID: 944

    Host: localhost

    Main class: <unknown>

    Arguments: <none>

     

     

    JVM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (20.45-b01-451, mixed mode)

    Java: version 1.6.0_45, vendor Apple Inc.

    Java Home: /System/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0.jdk/Contents/Home

    JVM Flags: <none>

     

     

    Heap dump on OOME: enabled

     

    I hope something is helpful within all of this info!

    Java isn't in Applications, it's part of the OS you might say.

     

    Do you have Java Preferences (.app) in Applications>Utilities?

     

    If so, what are all the settings there?

  • Librarian213 Level 1 Level 1

    Java is not in the   Applications>Utilities

     

    I do know that javaapplet is in the system utilities folder, I have followed the instructions several times to put it in the trash. I just double checked to make sure it was still there and it is.

    This indicates that you have the latest Java SE 6 version installed. To see which Java SE 7 version's installed, run this in the Terminal app:

     

    sudo /Library/Internet\ Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home/bin/java -version

     

    Do note that you'll have to carefully enter your admin password at the Password; prompt, since nothing's displayed in the window, and hit the return key. If you have the latest, then you should get this:

     

    java version "1.7.0_21"

    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_21-b12)

    baltwo,

     

    This time I struck out. I navigated to Terminal and copied the line that you gave me, however, when I tried to input my password (which I have done 3 - 4 times in the last couple of weeks, I cannot enter anything).

    Here is the last encounter:

     

    {my name}  (little black box)

    sudo /Library/Internet\ Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home/bin/java -version

    Password:

    Sorry, try again.   (little black box)

    Password:

    sudo: 1 incorrect password attempt

    {my name}  ~ {name}$  (little black box)

     

    I have tried typing where the little black box is, and just past the box, and just pressing return.  Nothing happens when I try to enter the password. I am assuming this is the password for the adminstrator of the computer and not my Apple password. Actually at this point it wouldn't matter. I haven't been able to type anything in the space.

  • BDAqua Level 10 Level 10

    What you type in for the PW will not be echoed to the screen, for security purposes, have you carefully typed it then hit enter?

  • baltwo Level 9 Level 9

    Exactly. That's why I posted: …nothing's displayed in the window…. For the OP, it's your admin password, not your AppleID password.

  • Librarian213 Level 1 Level 1

    For    BDAqua & baltwo thank you both!

     

    I have depressed the keys on my keyboard, but nothing gets typed and nothing has moved, when I hit the return key, the computer  typed  Sorry try again, the second time after I typed with nothing showing up, nothing moving, then I got    the suod: 1 incorrect password attempt

     

    Yes I did try to type the admin password and pressed the enter key.

     

    I have been able to do this before today, but today it is not working for me.

  • Librarian213 Level 1 Level 1

    I am really feeling ridiculous now. I replied to someone, somewhere, but it is not showing up here. I apologize if you receive 2 answers.

     

    I did type in the admin password and pressed enter.   IT WORKED!  So then I received the message:

     

    java version "1.7.0_21"

    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_21-b12)

    Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.21-b01, mixed mode)

     

    Where do I go from here?

  • BDAqua Level 10 Level 10

    I realize you posted it, but thought it was evidently missed.

  • Librarian213 Level 1 Level 1

    Now that we have the info about what Java is installed, I have rebooted the computer and tried to run POGO. Java is still not being recognized by my computer. My computer is about as updated as it could be (did that yesterday before posting). What intriguing little dot or space is missing in the Apple vs Java saga?

     

    And I do want to thank BDAqua & baltwo for getting me this far on the journey. There are times that I hate to see that there are updates available.

  • BDAqua Level 10 Level 10

    Do you have link to this Pogo game I can try, or is it paid only?

  • Librarian213 Level 1 Level 1

    You have a choice of playing without paying, or you can pay to subscribe. Some of their games still work for me, but this is the link to Mahjong Gardens which is one that does not work. It is one of their most popular games. They have support pages, too, but nothing has really helped. They keep saying you need to reinstall Java.
