linux access to "go to meeting" presentations


Does anyone know how a linux workstation user (Ubuntu Jaunty or Lucid) might join and participate in GoToMeeting.com(tm) presentations?

Thanks,

Have you asked the people who run GoToMeeting? (Citrix, if I remember the radio ads correctly)

I was pleasantly surprised to discover that Cisco at least claims Linux support for WebEx. I have not used it a lot, so I have not fully tested that claim.

I don't think GoToMeeting functions under Linux. Every time I've tried to connect, it keeps claiming that my system is unsupported and then stops. Webex does allow Linux clients, but with limited functionality. You can't share applications or your desktop, you can only view meetings. GoToMeeting is one of the reasons I have to keep a Windows machine around.

On the more obscure side, DimDim does seem to support full Linux sharing and Yugma claims that it is on their to-do list.

Thanks for these references. This is exactly the sort of responses I was hoping for: [i](1)gotomeeting(tm) client or, (2)pointers to FLOSS-friendly services that deliver similar benefits to clients.[i/]
