Update: I tried Ctrl + Alt + Backspace, that didn't work. I tried rebooting, that didn't work. I tried renaming /.kde to /.kdeold then Ctrl + Alt + Backspace. That seemed to work for a little while. And then flash breaks again. I figured it had something to do with KDE. So I though I tried narroing it down. I deleted every thing in /.kde except /.kde/share then Ctrl + Alt + Backspace. Log back in, still nothing. I deleted every thing in /.kde/share except for /.kde/share/apps and /.kde/share/config. Ctrl + Alt + Backspace, log back on and still nothing.
At this point I've narrowed it down to two folders and flash still doesn't work.
I rename /.kde/share/apps to /.kde/share/appsold then Ctrl + Alt + Backspace. Log back on and still no flash. I rename /.kde/share/config to /.kde/share/configold then Ctrl + Alt + Backspace. I log back on load up youtube and oh look at that flash is working. So I've managed to narrow it down to /.kde/share/config.
Now I decide to try something else. I would drag files in groups of 20 or so from /.kde/share/configold back to and I take a screen shot so I have a record of what files I put back. Each time I did this I would Ctrl + Alt + Backspace and try flash. Flash continued to work through this process all the way to the last file.
Well I moved all files in /.kde/share/configold back to /.kde/share/config and flash is still working. At the point I'm stumped. I thought I would be able to narrow it down to a single config file that was causing flash not to work in the first place. Well as I said, all the old config files are back and flash is working when before it was broke when using the exact same config files.
I don't know what kind of "voodoo" is going on here, but moving /.kde/share/config to /.kde/share/configold then Ctrl + Alt + Backspace logging on, then moving /.kde/share/configold back to /.kde/share/config seems to get flash working again even though they're the same config files.
It would seem apparent KDE is designed with pixie dust that's beyond my conprehension and works on some kind of anti-logic. :-s At this point, Flash seems to be working (for now any way).
