Enabling Cisco WebEx on a Fedora system is actually a lot easier than it looks by searching on Google. Pretty usual uh? Every time you look for something Linux related, a plethora of posts tell you that you need to compile, download, hack and modify.
This was probably true 10 years ago, but now setting up everything is much more easier than it sounds and usually involves a couple of settings and a couple of packages.
These are the steps required to setup Cisco WebEx on a Fedora 19 system; whether it be x86_64 or i686:
# yum install icedtea-web java-1.8.0-openjdk \ pangox-compat.i686 libXmu.i686 libgcj.i686 mesa-libEGL.i686 \ gtk2.i686 libpng2.i686 # setsebool -P unconfined_mozilla_plugin_transition=off mmap_low_allowed=on
The first packages are by good chance already installed on your system and should be the same of your system architecture; while the others need always to be the i686 variant as the WebEx program is compiled for 32 bit processors.

Updated information with additional packages for latest WebEX update.

As reported in the comments, due to recent Mesa updates, if you don’t have Mesa’s libEGL installed you have to add it. Added to the list of packages required for installation.
