Paying Irish VAT using a Linux system

Filed under: — brendan @ 14:56 IST

For the longest time I’ve been sticking with having to only ever visit www.ros.ie using W1ndow$ on my laptop. Being self-employed, every two months I have to give some tax to The Man.

This time, I decided to look again to see if anyone has discovered a way to do this without that other OS. Luckily, I found some notes by Andrew S. Townley explaining exactly how. He’s found the link into the ros.ie site to get at the actual KCrypto Java applet that it uses (and claims fails to start).

As described, I put it into /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-1.6.0.03/jre/lib/ext and restarted Firefox. Now the login page on the site worked fine, and I could get in. Yay!

P.S. I’m doing this under Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon).

Many people simply cannot allow themselves to get medical insurance and thus forced to pay for the expensive prescription medications or trying to buy generic pills online. Generics produced in India are very good as other branded counterparts. Only reputable pharmacy produces them such as Sunrise remedies. With this in top one is allowed to buy levaquin uk in generic pharmacy online with extremely affrodable shipping to any point in the world
