Why can't you put shockwave on? What error does it give you?

Does sound work on any other programs, maybe like on youtube? If not, then you need to configure your sound card by making sure you have the right modules, or by maybe running certain programs to make sure that u're volume levels aren't muted. There's a whole process, but to begin, start by saying what linux distribution you have on your pc.

Why do you feel the need to post the same question after you've gotten 5 replies in your original thread:
