You need to install the flash plugin in the /usr/lib/mozilla-1.6/plugins folder. That's where mine went by default, anyway. Works fine
Edit: For the sake of clearing up confusion on my part...
When I say install the plugins to the /usr/lib/mozilla-1.6/plugins folder, you're going to specify it like this:
You will not need to tack on the /plugins folder. The flash installer knows where to put it. The reason why I'm clearing this up is; I've seen a lot of people get confused on this minor detail. Pardon me, folks.
In the /usr/lib folder it only has mozilla-1.4, the default instalation that came with Mandrake.
I installed mozilla into /usr/local/mozilla. I added a launcher in my taskbar that pointed to /usr/local/mozilla/mozilla.
I installed it in the default location puropsely.
When I run the flashplayer installer I specify that directory.
I have installed the flash player successfully in Redhat, but not in Mandrake.
When I load the installer script it says that it has to install 2 fonts.
Then it asks you to specify your directory. If you specify a directory that does not exist then it gives you an error. If you specify a directory that does not have a browser in it it says "Please enter a valid installation path"
I specify the correct directory.
It says Macromedia Flash Player 6 will ....
then it lists the browser installation directory then it asks, Proceed with .. (y/n/q)
Then it says Perform another installation. I then proceed with FireBird and Netscape.
I have successfully got this working using this exact same method with my RedHat box.
So I have tried enverything you guys have said.
If you can think of anything else please let me know.
