Question Slackware 12.1 - Opera 9.63 // Can't install flash plugin.Where can I found the libs?

I'm trying to install flashplayer in Opera but I can't.
I've copied to the Opera plugins dir ( /opt/opera-9.63-2474/lib/opera/plugins ).

But flash is not working.
I've noticed that there are some libs missing:

ldd |grep not => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found => not found
Does anybody know where can i find this libs? I didn't find any website with the libs (just rpms).
After downloading, can i just put it into the Opera's
lib dir?

I'm really sorry for the bad english guys, i'm trying to improve it.

Thanks for all,

I'm going to try it, and i'll be editing this post soon.

It didn't work...Script and package run OK, but Opera can't find the plugin.

This build script was written for a different version of the
flash plugin than you have downloaded.  This is probably due
to Adobe changing the upstream tarball - they don't have
versioned tarballs - and it's almost certainly nothing to be
concerned about.  However, if this package doesn't build or
work as expected, contact the project on our
users mailing list.
I think that's the problem.
I'm going to try to uninstall Opera and install from a SlackBuild script.

==EDIT 2==
Didn't work.Somebody knows what should I do now?

Thanks for any help

Same problem here. With version 9.64 on Slackware 12.2. It seems opera team doesn't matter the effort of developing a Linux version which won't be used by anyone because it can't find flash plugin. (((
Please, somebody help!!!
