It is now possible to connect to a Windows machine running Logmein from Linux using a Java browser plugin…..unfortunately if you are using a 64-bit kernel on Ubuntu Karmic, then the java version from the Ubuntu repos is incompatible with the plugin.

To work around this, download https://secure.logmein.com/activex/logmein-client-1.0.387-1.tar.gz, and extract to ~/.mozilla/plugins/ then download and install nspluginwrapper from the repos (sudo apt-get install nspluginwrapper).  Nspluginwrapper is a tool to create a layer of compatibility for non-native browser plugins.

You can then use nspluginwrapper by using:

sudo nspluginwrapper -i ~/.mozilla/plugins/libractrl.so

Restart firefox and navigate to the logmein website again and it should work…
