I spent the better part of 1-2 hours trying to install Juniper Network Connect SSL VPN software on my machine. Reason being is that JNC doesn’t natively support x86_64 Java or libraries. Much of the info online is either out-dated, requires you to run someone’s lengthy hand-written script (no thanks), or just plain wrong.
Here’s everything you need to get JNC running on Linux Mint Debian Edition. This install assumes a cleanly installed system with packages up to date, and will likely run on similar systems (Debian, Ubuntu, etc). I’m running Xfce as my desktop, but it should work for all major desktops.
