Opera - Flash doesn't work


Running Debian unstable (latest)

opera:about
Verrsion 7.54 u1
Build 892
Platform Linux
System i686, 2.6.9-1-k7
Qt library 3.3.3

aboutlugins
NS4PluginProxy
application/x-opera-nsplugin -
/usr/lib/opera/plugins/libnpp.so

Shockwave Flash
application/x-shockwave-flash swf
application/futuresplash spl
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so

Flash is 7.0 r25

A little while ago I noticed that for some reason Flash wasn't working in Opera. I used the debian package flashplugin-nonfree to install the flash plugin into /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins.

Opera is told to look in this dir for plugins and it shows up within it, upon loading a page that uses flash, the flash content is not displayed and this output is given:

/usr/lib/opera/plugins/operamotifwrapper-1: error while loading shared libraries: libXm.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
/usr/lib/opera/plugins/operamotifwrapper-2: error while loading shared libraries: libXm.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
/usr/lib/opera/plugins/operamotifwrapper-3: error while loading shared libraries: libXm.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
/usr/lib/opera/plugins/operamotifwrapper-1: error while loading shared libraries: libXm.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
/usr/lib/opera/plugins/operamotifwrapper-2: error while loading shared libraries: libXm.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
/usr/lib/opera/plugins/operamotifwrapper-3: error while loading shared libraries: libXm.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I tried putting the plugin in my user's .opera/plugins dir as well as /usr/lib/opera/plugins but neither worked, as well as installing the plugin through Macromedia's tar.gz

Help is appreciated.

>> http://www.opera.com/linux/docs/plugins/install/#flash

also, from opera.com:
You also need to have Motif/libotif installed:

http://www.opera.com/linux/docs/plugins/install/motif/

If you do not have Motif installed, you will see a failed dependency: libXm.so.2. You can still force an install, but without Motif, Opera will not be able to display Netscape plug-ins or Java applets.

Our plug-in documentation can be found here:

http://www.opera.com/linux/docs/plugins/

cheers.
