Did you install anything else you might need?
From the Plugger home page
This is what you need:
Homepage Binaries Comment
Plugger 4.0 Linux-x86-glibc2.1 tar.gz or rpm
Solaris 7 sparc
Solaris 8 sparc or x86
Plugger version 4.0
Please select the binary that closest to your operating system.
Solaris 2.5.1 (sparc)
Solaris 2.5.1 (x86) You need xanim to play Quicktime, WAV, AVI and MPEG files. If you have any troubles with this, make sure you have the latest version 184.108.40.206 or later of xanim. Please note that xanim isn't very good at showing MPEG video, so I would recommend getting mpegtv (see below) to view MPEG files.
mplayer Download This will enable you to view AVI (including DivX) and MPEG video.
MpegTv N/A This will enable you to view smooth MPEG video in streaming mode.
TiMidity++ Linux-x86-glibc2.0 You need Timidity to play MIDI files.
Patch files All platforms Timidity needs these instruments to play MIDI files.
mpg123 Linux-x86-glibc2.0 mpg123 is used to play MPEG audio files in streaming mode.
AlsaPlayer N/A Alsaplayer is a good player for MP3, WAV and MOD files.
XMP Linux-x86-glibc2.0 XMP is used by plugger to play Soundtracker/Protracker/Noisetracker and plenty of other MOD files.
Sidplay Linux-x86-glibc20 Sidplay emulates the Commodore 64 SID chip - only for nostalgia.
ImageMagick Download ImageMagic's 'display' program will enable Plugger to display PNG, TIFF, BMP and other image formats.
GQview Download GQview actually works better with Plugger but is still in beta so it is only used for PNG and TIFF files by default.
GV Download GV (GhostView) will enable Plugger to display PDF and Postscript files.
abiword Download AbiWord will allow you to view Microsoft Word and RTF files with Plugger.
Gnumeric Download For Excel files.
All of the external programs above can also be used as Netscape helpers, but you need Plugger to handle the <EMBED> tag. With Plugger your animations will show up in your Netscape window exactly as it would in windows. With Plugger you will also see streaming MPEGs, which in my experience, is an entirely cool feature.
Note that you don't actually need all the programs above to use Plugger. If you don't have all the tools above, just edit the config file to fit your needs. The config file is normally installed in /etc/pluggerrc-4.0 or $HOME/.netscape/pluggerrc-4.0.
1. Download and untar the archive.
2. Change directory into the Plugger directory.
3. If you have root access, do 'make install' as root. Otherwise, do 'make localinstall'.
Test your plugin
Now that you have Plugger installed you might want to test that it works. Proceed to the Plugger testing grounds.
If for some reason your plugin doesn't work, proceed to the troubleshooting page. You may also want to try older versions of Plugger which are available here.
What else should I get for my UNIX Netscape?
* shockwave - Macromedia flash player for linux.
* RealAudio - Play audio without extreme downloads.
* Acrobat Reader - View pdf documents in your Netscape.
You can also get the source for Plugger and compile it yourself. If you do so, you also need the Netscape Plugin SDK.
I am currently working on Plugger binaries for more platforms. Don't hesitate to email me if your particular platform is missing. However, I do not have access to every possible platform, so if you compile Plugger or any of the Plugger applications and think it would be nice to have the binaries on this page, then please send me the executable.
