I would think that http://www.macromedia.com
would be the natural place to look for it.

Cheers,

Tja!!!

Sorry for my ignorance, but I've checked the site you gave me and it worked correctly with Mozilla Firebird. I don't remember installing Shockware plugins, but I did, installed flash. Would that be the same thing? Because if it is, you can get it from here:

Lycka till...

I haven't tried this ...

There is a codeweavers product "crossover" ( see <http://www.codeweavers.com/products/crossover/> ) which will run Windows pluggins in linux mozilla using the 'wine' technology. There currently want US$34.94, which they say they use to supprot continued development of wine.

There's no Shockwave plugins for Linux (whatever browser)... perhaps those who need it should lobby to Macromedia?
