Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i never had much luck with codecs & plugins for konqueror, i do have lots of luck with plugins & codecs with firefox & seamonkey, just unpack the codecs & plugins to ~/.mozilla/plugins and restart your browser...
Distribution: pclos2016, Slack14.1 Deb Jessie, + 50+ other Linux OS, for test only.
Flash in konqueror works fine for me.
I make it work this way:
Copy or link 'libflashplayer.so' to /usr/lib/kde/plugins (probably /opt/kde3/lib...in suse)
(There is a plugin-setup / search in konqueror so in fact it should find it by itself,
but may be flash is not supported ??)
everybody thanks ....
i am a little more used to ff in suse, but i went to slackware 12.0 becausae of hardware issues, anyway the libflashplayer.so is not in root ,,, i downed a .rpm file for KDE,,, not sure how to unpack this, is it the same as the .tar.gz files>>>>????? just unzip .rpm???? kde seems to be more command oriented ,,,, can't find YAST yet ,,,, but today is day ONE ,,,, again thanks for the help .....
looks like the plugins for konqueror reside in /usr/lib .... there
is no /usr/lib/kde folder .... i guess it claims the whole directory as home .... there are ALOT of .so and .la files to be found ....
but, again i don't know how to unpack a .rpm file in shell, what is the command????
and good saturday to everyone,,,
long live linus and linux
.rpm man page give a whole lot of switches ..... but,
rpm - i flash-plugin-220.127.116.11-release.i386.rpm just gives a list of dependencies that are inadequate .... much to many for me ....
is there an easier way to unpack this dude??????
everybody thanks ....
i am a little more used to ff in suse, but i went to slackware 12.0 becausae of hardware issues
If you're using Slackware, you need the .tar.gz file not the .rpm. The instructions on how to install it are on the Adobe download page. It's also been covered in a few threads on these forums. Try the Search button.
ok .... mucho gracias for all the help !!!!!
what worked is this:
download the .tar.gz file
unpack it according to inst on adobe
the folder konqueror resides in is still a mystery
so i switched as suggested back to mozilla firefox
the firefox plugin directory was easy to find ...
even though adobe would like us to run the installer all that is necessary
is to cp libflashplayer.so over into the above folder and ALL IS GOOD ...
now for all the naysayers .... i DO use the "search" button but it is only so good on adobe .... and the hint about the man pages was useful as i never knew those were there ..... a little overwhelming when your looking for one answer in amongst 300 switches .... and yes there are pages already in here about flash .... but none of them were based on a kde platform in slackware .... i looked there FIRST before i posted AS ALWAYS .... but each person in their own way helped me along and motivated me ....
AND THAT WHAT'S GREAT about LINUX and linuxquestions.org
ALL THE BEST to each of you ...
untill next time
long live Linus and Linux !!!!
