Can't play youtube videos
 
When play youtube video in knoppix5.1 live cd message says 'javascript turned off or I have an old version of adobe falsh player. How do I turn on javascript, should I download .tar.gz, .rpm or YUM adobe flash file ?

In Firefox try Edit-->Prferences-->Content.

vinic222 12-25-2007 09:34 AM

Konqueror browser 'Edit' doesn't have 'preferences', 'properties' is greyed out. Downloaded firefox, saved firefox.tar.gz file. Double-clicked file but doesn't install. Where can I find info on how to install this file?

vinic222 12-25-2007 09:52 AM

Went to iceweasel browser,Edit,Preferences,Contents - java and javascript are enabled. Clicked download link for adobe flash player at Youtube. Should I download .tar.gz, .rpm or YUM file and how do I install ?

Download the tar.gz file, extract it, and run the installer.

vinic222 12-25-2007 02:47 PM

Downloaded file to desktop (install_flash_player_9_linux), rt click, chose extract to home/knoppix, rt click and no option to install, some options are -> open in new window, open in new tab, open with kaffeine, compress etc. Clicked folder and 2 files open, flashplayer-installer (shell script) and libflashplayer.so (shared libary). clicked shell script file and it just winks.

Start console and go to the folder, where you extracted the file. In your case it's home/knoppix
Code:

cd /home/knoppix
Than log in as root
Code:

su
and type in you password.

Than install the file
Code:

./flashplayer-installer

vinic222 12-25-2007 09:33 PM

Typed su xxxxxxxx (pw), got unknown id. Is this 'root login' line ?

mcmillan 12-26-2007 03:04 PM

It's su as one line, after you press enter it will ask for the password.

After the flashplayer is installed I think you should be able use it in konqueror as well.

vinic222 12-26-2007 03:54 PM

knoppix@Knoppix:~$ su
root@Knoppix:/ramdisk/home/knoppix# 12345
bash: 12345: command not found
root@Knoppix:/ramdisk/home/knoppix# ./flashplayer-installer
bash: ./flashplayer-installer: No such file or directory

password 12345 was not accepted.

mcmillan 12-26-2007 04:50 PM

It looks like the root password is not active, since it took you directly to the root command line without the password. Are you sure that's the location of the extracted file? You said you went into a folder, which means it wouldn't be /home/knoppix, but /home/knoppix/[folder name]. The period in the command ./flashplayer-installer just means the current directory.

How do I watch you tube videos on ubuntu?
 
I just installed unbuntu on my computer and can't watch you tube videos! :( I am very new to the whole Linux thing, so please explain to me how to install the correct plug in i'll need to watch Youtube videos. Sorry for the hassle, I know I need to,and am willing to, adjust the Linux world. Linux rocks!

vinic222 12-26-2007 05:31 PM

The downloaded file is install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz. It was moved to a folder of the same name. Extracted files from the download (there it's a folder not a file) and got 2 files flashplayer-installer ,a shell script and libflashplayer.so a shared library. I had tried the command with the folder name preceeding the installer file but the file could not be found.

eighty, take a look at ubuntuguide.org That link goes to the section on browser plugins, the whole site is good if you're just starting out on ubuntu. The plugin you need is the flash plugin

vinic22, this line was closest to what you need:
root@Knoppix:/ramdisk/home/knoppix# ./install_flash_player_9_linux./flashplayer-installer

I think you just had a typo with the period at the end of the folder name.

vinic222 there's alot of basics to learn
Usually downloading on Knoppix it is found on your Desktop. You can probably see it on your screen.
# cd /Desktop
# tar -zxvf install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz.
# cd install_flash_player_9_linux/
# ls
now you can see libflashplayer.so
copy this to the iceweasel browser plugin file

# cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/plugins/

You see firefox is now iceweasel. You can do your research on it.
Also study the command line commands.
Knoppix su root does not require your password.
Although some utilities or apps ask for it.
The mozilla-firefox file might not be the correct file dunno.
But it needs to be in the iceweasel browser plugin file.
hth

Could be /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins
check out
#locate /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins
and it should be there.
