Flash Player plugin doesnot work in firefox 2 in fedora 5
I recently Installed Firefox 2 on my fedora core 5 but couldnot install
flash plugin and various sites kept on showing the missing plugin and additional plugin tags.
I have tried it both by rpm pakages and direct instalations but couldnt get through
please help me out
The only plugin I've managed to get to work on any distro is from the Adobe website:
follow the link to the Linux x86 version (Flash Player 7 for Mozilla 1.2)
...in the archive there's an installer that will put the plugins in the correct directories (remember the firefox install directory is /lib/firefox_whatever_version_you_have as it will look for a "plugin" directory here)
Hope this works !
Both of you need to make better use of the search feature. Flash 9 for linux is out. Just install the file in the firefox/plugins directory.
I'm perfectly well aware of the search feature...
The Flash 9 plugin didn't work for me when I first tried it in fc5..the v7 plugin is the only one I could ever get to work.
Just to clarify. Flash 9 does work with fedora. There are many threads that cover this topic and how to install. I wont bother posting links, since you know how to use the search engine.
I tried to install flash-9 for firefox-2.0 on FC6. Here's my odyssey
First I tried what any normal unsuspecting person would do. I tried to download flash-9 from here
The Download link next to Adobe® Flash® Player 9 is this
Looks like I should be able to get flash 9 by clicking the link there, right?
Wrong. This link takes you here and you see a "Download Now" button. The only problem is the link is this
Huh? OK, so it is detecting my OS and telling me I need flash-7 :confused:
The thing is, you need to get flash-9 some other way. I went here after a quick google search
Then clicked the "Download" link next to Flash Player 9 Update beta 2
There is still a problem. This link only gives you the libflashplayer.so file. You need the flashplayer.xpt file as well. Luckily for me, I was able to use the one in the flash-7 tarball. I put them both in the plugins directory for my firefox-2.0 installation and voila! It works.
You can test your flash install here
Now I wonder what is the difference between shockwave and flashplayer?
