Re-enable Java under 10.6

Apple keeps disabling Java because of security issues, and that breaks some of the software we use, including Geogebra. Please advise your students about the following:

1. Launch Geogebra. It will prompt about enabling Java Web Start applications. Click Enable.

2. Then it will think for a few seconds, and show the following window. Check the little box to allow this in the future, and click the Allow button.

3. CAREFUL HERE. It will now prompt to "save" -- CLICK CANCEL!

Geogebra should now work as expected.

This will need to be done once per student per computer. After that, for that student on that computer, it should just work as it used to. To save time, we recommend that students use the same computer each time they come to the lab.
