Flash Player not working properly


I used apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree to install Flash player and it just doesn't want to have it. My machine comes back with the following jargon:

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Why not go here and get the rpm and use alien to install the rpm with alien -i flash.rpm and scan for the new plugins if you use Konqueror in it's setup. If it still does not work then copy the files to your /home/user_name/.mozilla/plugins/ directory and chown them to your user name and re-scan and they should available for use. The files to copy and what the permissions should look like:
Code:
HappyTux:/home/stephen$ ll .mozilla/plugins/
flashplayer.xpt    libflashplayer.so
HappyTux:/home/stephen$ ll .mozilla/plugins/flashplayer.xpt
-rw-r--r--    1 stephen  stephen       856 2003-06-08 00:02 .mozilla/plugins/flashplayer.xpt
