    I reiterate:
    I downloaded and successfully installed CDFPlayer_9.0.1_LINUX.sh in my desktop Ubuntu  14.04, however the CelestialNavigation.cdf will not play. Says there is no application that will open it. Any suggestions?

    Hi Philip,

    On Windows and Mac, there is a browser Plug-In in the CDF Player download. Which enables the you to interact with the application directly in the web browser enviroment. Not so with Linux. Where there is no browser Plug-In. So in the Linux case you need to download the application. Before being able to use it.

    Maybe this is the cause of the problem?

    Best regards
