I just downloaded shockwave 6 from their website and installed it into my Mozilla directory as the installation directed.... but i still don't find my plug-in enabled in my Mozilla browser? How do you do that?
I'd really appreciate your help
I would be curious about that myself, since shockwave is not supported in Linux. You downloaded it from their website? I'm looking at the macromedia site now and they have MacOS and Windows versions only. That's why it won't work
I read the readme file that came with the installation and it said that after the installation, the plug-in will be in the Mozilla browser but i can't seem to find it.... how do i copy into the Mozilla plug-in and which file must i copy?
OK, do this:
Is there a directory named "plugins?". If you haven't installed any other plugins, there probably won't be, so make it (mkdir ~/.mozilla/plugins). Then copy the files "libflashplayer.so" and "flashplayer.xpt" from where you decompressed the Flash plugin to that directory.
Then run mozilla from the command line and see if any errors are displayed when it loads.
OK, make sure that the files are not in ~/.mozilla/plugin, but ~/.mozilla/plugins (since the "plugin" directory is often there by default, but the plugins need to be installed into "plugins") and then run it from a terminal and post any output.
it's weird.... mozilla loads as usual even though i copied the files from "plugins" to "plugin" and deleted "plugins".... the plug-ins are still not loaded.... i really wonder what could be the problem...
