I have trouble understanding this.

Should I copy all of these:
Code:
/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/gecko-mediaplayer-dvx.so
/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/gecko-mediaplayer-qt.so
/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/gecko-mediaplayer-rm.so
/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/gecko-mediaplayer-wmp.so
/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/gecko-mediaplayer.so
/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/skypebuttons.so
And than add them to the plugins directory?

Sorry, yees it was /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

The copy command is cp and directory listing is ls so use the ls command to look into the /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins directory:

Code:
ls /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins
If the flash plugin is not there, then install the pkg and after installing, try again to see into that directory.
Why you tried to use the cat command is unknown to me. Cat is used to look into the files not directories.

cat: /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins: Is a directory
Copy those files that you posted into that directory? Use Nano to do that?
I have trouble understanding. I have a disability-
The directory /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins exists, even if you are running 32-bit Slackware, because you have installed the 64-bit flashplayer-plugin package earlier:
Code:
installpkg flashplayer-plugin-11.2.202.356-x86_64-1alien.txz
So this is not the correct way to determine if you are running a 32-bit or a 64-bit OS.
The better check is done by looking at the output of these commands:
Code:
uname -a
ls -la /var/log/packages/mozilla*
If you have a 64-bit OS you need to install the 64-bit flashplayer and if you are running a 32-bit OS you will need the 32-bit flashplayer.
The best thing to do is start over: remove the libflashplayer.so that you copied into /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins and "removepkg flashplayer-plugin". After that, you need to determine what exactly it is that you need, and only install that.

I also see you are showing lots of examples where you are trying to "cat" a directory. Like, "cat /usr/mozilla/plugins". You can cat a file, not a directory. If you want to display the directory content, use "ls".
I know, technically a directory in UNIX is just another form of file on disk, but try to maintain the difference.

Using the terminal this is what I have:

libflashplayer.so

You have installed 64-bit flash on a 32-bit slackware. Install the 32-bit flash instead.

Well that's not good. I thought I downloaded Slackware for 64-bit-
I made a mistake--

I just downloaded:
Quote:
flashplayer-plugin-11.2.2.202.356-i386-1alien.txz
from the Slackbuilds mirror.

I'll install that and than remove the flashplayer for 64-bit.

I haven't untared the adobe flashplayer plugin to get the "libflashplayer.so" -
If that not necessary for me to do that; please say so. (as I am easily confused) I have PTSD.

My current /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins still has libflashplayer.so and skypebutton.so - From when I first started the thread.

bash-4.3$ ls /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
libflashplayer.so skypebuttons.so
bash-4.3$
I should delete that right?

No, you don't need to do anything else. Installing the package will have put libflashplayer.so in the right place.

Success with flashplayer

Thank you all for sticking with me.
It's not easy being Ztcoracat sometimes--

I'm watching a you tube video now and flashplayer is working properly-

Installing the flashplayer for 32 -bit and removing the flashplayer for 64 -bit solved the issue.
