Pulse Connect Secure 8.2R1 introduced a new mechanism, “Pulse Application Launcher” (PAL), for launching and installing Pulse Secure clients from a web browser which have deprecated Java Plugin, ActiveX technologies and have restrictions on Java, however, PSAL is not supported on Linux Ubuntu so Java is still required to run JSAM on Linux Ubuntu.
(Refer to the Supported Platforms Guide
for PSAL support on specific Linux OS's.)
To run JSAM on Linux Ubuntu follow these steps:
1. Download and install the latest Java Runtime Environment from https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java
2. Download and install the latest browser plugin from https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java
3. Use a Java-enabled browser such as Chrome or Firefox and enable Java in the browser
4. Launch JSAM and accept or allow any Java security prompts that popup.
For Linux platforms other than Ubuntu, JSAM is supported as long as the above-mentioned requirements are met.
