I uninstalled java today by using this guide.

Since then I get an dialog which asks me for installing java. This happens every time after a login to my user. How can stop this request or how I can determine why I get this requests?

  • This is the same request that you get after a clean install of Mountain Lion that is free of Java. Just so you know. – gentmatt Mar 25 '13 at 19:43

Check your login items (System Preferences → Users & Groups → Login Items). If it's happening on every login, it's likely you have some process that requires Java in your login items.

If you can't find an explanation amongst login items then you could begin with a log in as a different user, and command:

sudo execsnoop -v

Then log in as the user with the Java puzzle and note the time of appearance of the dialogue.

Switch to the first user, Command-C to abort the run of execsnoop then consider the time range before the dialogue appeared.

My solution was described in this answer. I had this com.facebook.videochat.[username].plist file in my ~/Library/LaunchAgenst folder.
