Flash and webkit


Does anyone got flash working in a webkit browser? I use slackware 13.37, my browser is dwb (but other webkit browser had the same issue), webkit 1.2.1 from the gnome-slack-build-repo and the latest flash (11b1) version from slackbuilds.org.

I thought all browsers are looking for plugins in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins...

Would be great to get this working, so I can remove firefox :-)

I'm posting this from Uzbl, and I seem to have flash working ok. I installed flashplayer using the script from /extra on the Slackware install disk. The plug-in shows up in /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/

Are you using 32-bit?

The SlackBuilds.org script for Flash works for. Chrome on 64-bit here.

The seamonkey-solibs package that comes standard in Slackware would also work I think.

Oh, thanks! I thought this package is just some random lib for seamonkey - so I deselected when installing slackware. Now I removed mozilla-nss, installed seamonkey-solibs and it works great! I usually prefer the standard slackware apps. Thanks piratesmack

For at least some nss apps, you need either Seamonkey or Mozilla-nss (from SBo) in addition to seamonkey-solibs. Chrome is one.
