OK I been searching the web and LinuxQuestions.org forums, for a solution to this problem I am having, but after many hours of research, I am having no luck.
I just did a fresh install of Mandrake 9.2.
I am using Gnome 2.4.0
I uninstalled Mozilla 1.4 and installed Mozilla 1.5.
I am having a hard time installing the Flash Plugin.
I logged in as Root
I downloaded the FlashPlugin, and extracted the directory
cd to the directory
then typed ./flashplayer-installer
Copyright information is displayed so I then pressed enter, only to see this:
NOTE: Macromedia Flash Player requires two font packages to be installed
ttfonts and urw-fonts
I originally hit enter to finish the installer anyway, only to discover it didn't work.
SO I set out to find these font packages
The only url I could find the fonts were at r p m f i n d . n e t
I downloaded the following files: ttfonts-1.3-12mdk.src.rpm
Now I am confussed as to how to install these files.
I tried typing in a terminal as root : rpm --rebuild font_package_names.mdk.src.rpm
and it seemed to have compiled or installed something. (I am unsure)
tried running the flash-installer again, Only to find out I am wasted 4 hours of my day doing research on this subject.
Please if anyone could help me here, I would certainly appreciate the help.
