bash: javaws: command not found...

I'm currently running Fedora 17.  I got the following error starting up a .jnlp file for a web conference :

bash: javaws: command not found...

I checked alternatives, but there was no javaws. A quick yum install solved it :

sudo yum install icedtea-web

Fedora, docking stations and external monitors

I am running Fedora 17 and using a docking station with an external monitor.  Beefy Miracle does not play well in this scenario; apparently Fedora 18, Spherical Cow, doesn't either.

I found the answer on the blog "Note to Self", blog post has a solution for 17, and this post has one for 18.
