So... given that it works for others, should I re-install Slackware 14.0? Maybe something went wrong during installation??
I really do not know what else to do and I am not exactly a Linux expert!

Ok, thanks, I will give it a try. I did download and install Chromium because that is what I was able to find at SlackBuilds.com. But then I discovered that Chromium does not come with built-in Flash Player...

I have installed Google Chrome as per suggestions.

When I go to www.accuradio.com/ (or any other site that uses flash!) I get the following pop-up message:
Quote:
Could not load Shockwave Flash.
Any idea of what prevents Chrome from loading its built-in flash? Clearly there is something in my setup that prevents the standalone flash, or the one built-in in Chrome, to load...

This is a guess:

Try removing the flash plugin you installed from SlackBuilds.

Maybe it is conflicting with something.

I have always just used the Flash player from Adobe: Download Adobe's *.tar.gz, decompress it, and, as root, copy libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/[whatever]/plugins.

You can check your Flash Player configuration in KDE by System Settings -> Lost and Found -> Adobe Flash Player.
Perhaps you have Flash cookies disabled for this site?

There is no "Lost and Found" in my System Settings screen.

I have just tested your suggestion and unfortunately flash still does not work.

in Firefox 16 does list Shockwave Flash (I have installed flash-player-plugin 11.2.202.243). So, it so strange that flash is not working.
