Symbolic Link

You have to create a symbolic link (ln -s) to libflashplayer.so, not just copy it to the plugins directory. Run a search on my handle for other posts I've written up. Iíve posted detailed instructions on how to do this before.

Before you add repositories it's probably a good idea to make sure your system is fully updated first. The easiest way to get started is to install the freshrpms-release packages:

# rpm -ihv http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/5/i386/l...5-8.noarch.rpm
# rpm -ihv http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linu....fc.noarch.rpm

You can browse the packages available there at http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/5/i386/ and http://bordeaux.freshrpms.net/. To automatically install/update the Macromedia Flash plug-in copy This File to your /etc/yum.repos.d directory.


Fedora Core 5 Tips & Tricks
Quote:
Install Macromedia Flash/Shockwave plug-in
If you set up the repositories correctly above you should just need to do this:

# yum -y install flash-plugin

You can get more information about this plug-in at http://macromedia.mplug.org/. Before the plug-in gets installed you'll need to agree to the terms of the license.

There is a problem with fonts not being handled correctly in the current version of the flash plug-in and until Macromedia gets around to fixing the plug-in you'll need to do the following workaround.

# mkdir -p /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fs/
# ln -s /etc/X11/fs/config /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fs/config

Flash in Fedora Core 5

Did you fix your problem with the Flash player not working?

I had the same problem and managed to get it working. Let me know if you haven't and I will walk you through it.

Cheers!

If it is still not working try this:

1. I installed the RPM package but Flash does not work.

Open a terminal and run /usr/lib/flash-plugin/setup. Here you
will be given an opportunity to accept the End User License Agreement.
If you had already accepted the license then it will link the plugin
to all known browsers.

If you do not see any error messages, then it probably worked. Be
sure to fully close your web browsers and run it again from scratch
before testing the Flash plugin for the first time.

In any Mozilla compatible browser, open "aboutlugins" within the
URL bar and it should show a list of all installed plugins.
You should see "Shockwave Flash" somewhere in that list.


IF this doesn't help and you have problems still try this link:
http://macromedia.mplug.org/faq.html

Cheers!

First that is the wrong directory to install it to. If you are you using FC5 then it should be something like usr/lib/mozilla (it is the default option or example when installing the plugins from the cmd line in shell. Also did you READ the links that I posted?
