Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I did what the post said and it didn't work for me?! What gives..? I coppied the libflashplayer.so file to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. Then I opened up Konqueror and I went to Settings -> Configure Konqueror -> Plugins, I added /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins to the top of the list, and when I click Scan for New Plugins, nothing happens!! PLEASE HELP!
It should find the plug-in, but it doesn't. I have the plugin installed to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins and I set the path to search for new plugins to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins and when I click "Scan for New Plugins," the progress bar just flies by and nothing happens. Once again, I'm on Slackware 12.2 with KDE 3.5. Also, I'm logged in as root.
and when I click Scan for New Plugins, nothing happens!! PLEASE HELP!
Indeed nothing happen, except konqueror updates the list of known plugins. In the same box click on the plugins tab and see if libflashplayer.so appear in the list of installed plugins. You can also check the available plugins by typing about:plugins.
I noticed that in Konqueror after having loaded the page with a flash video (e.g. any video at youtube) I have to click on the reload button to actually see the video. I don't know the reason of that, but you can give it a try.
Ok. I download install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz, untar it in a folder. You got 2 files (libflashplayer.so & flashplayer-installer).
I then read ebuild (the one script that comes with package manager for Gentoo) and check where the program (Firefox) is installed. I also enter aboutlugins in both Mozilla and Konqueror to find their plugins location. At that time installed plugin is libnullplugin.so. Then I copied libflashplayer.so to the directory where libnullplugin.so is installed.
I then check aboutlugins in Mozilla and I can see that flash plugin has been properly installed.
No, it's not listed in the plugins list, I have two plugins listed, one is the xine player and one is libmosvgdec.so. Should I maybe not be logged in as root to do this? I don't see how being root should affect it but maybe something with permissions?
aboutlugins in konqueror shows that i have no plugins installed at all, while the plugins list under the plugin tab shows that i have the libgxine.so plugin and some other plugin. But aboutlugins is empty
Although flash player starts up in Konqueror, it fails to load video at hulu.com. Also, I now get an error "nspluginviewer has crashed." This might be only related to the hulu site. Anyways, hope this thread helps someone, someday...
