Adobe Flash player on OpenSUSE 11.1 Beta 3 / AMD64


Hello, I just installed OpenSUSE after years of using Debian, and I must say, it's quite a bit different from it.. anyway, I'm having trouble installing Adobe's Flash player. I installed nspluginwrapper (and it shows in aboutlugins in firefox).

nspluginwrapper -v -i libflashplayer.so
*** NSPlugin Viewer *** ERROR: libflashplayer.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
nspluginwrapper: no appropriate viewer found for libflashplayer.so


Can anyone please help me out here?

Hi -

The easiest way to install most packages...
... and to insure all the dependencies and configuration are automatically done for you...
... is to use SusE's "YAST, Install Software Packages".

'Hope that helps .. PSM

Yes, but
A: I'm using a beta
B: flash is proprietary software
SuSE doesn't seem to have Flash packages. =(

I got a different error this time:

nspluginwrapper -v -i libflashplayer.so
*** NSPlugin Viewer *** ERROR: libnss3.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
nspluginwrapper: no appropriate viewer found for /home/vk/.mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so

Any ideas, anyone?

I tried downloading a static binary copy of 32-bit Firefox from mozilla.org, but it crashed every time I tried going to any websites. :/
