Are you sure that there is no

Code:
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
or

Code:
/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins
directory?

That is where it should go.

Are you, by chance, running Natty?

There is a bug in nspluginwrapper

It is a personal package archive, basically an unsupported alternative repository.

I don't use Konqueror, but can you try to use Konqueror to locate the plugin?
