Question Opera Plug-Ins???

Has anyone had problems installing plugins for opera 5.05. ( ihave RH 7.0 and i used the tgz files as the rpms never seem to work)

Once installed, i noticed that there was not a plugin directory. Therefore i copied my netscape plugin directory across. I then went into the preferences in opera ....the plugger files were seen automatically ....and these were then found under the plug in tab. However when i tested the plugin i got nothing??? The macromedia player also does not work (both these plugins worked under mozilla and netscape?- if only these browsers were quicker!!)

My next stop was to see if the MOTIF program needed updating --apparently to check you do the following,

ldd /usr/lib/opera/plug-ins/operamotifwrapper

However considering opera did not install a plugin can this file/dir be present?????

All of the documenttion on this subject seems very confusing for a newbie??

Can any one help?

Apart from this Opera rocks -its blindingly quick
