FireFox Plug-in


When I use Firefox, their are a series of plug-in required so the page can be displayed properly.

The problem is that download and installation, still the page has problems (rectangle that says "click here to download plug-in").

The same happened w/other software. For example, I downloaded Real Player .rpm file. Despite that appears available, it is not working. This was also the case for Panda for Linux freeware.

Please help. Thanks.

What Linux distro are you running? To get the RealPlayer plugin working, you can create a symlink as follows,
Code:
#ln -s /usr/local/RealPlayer/mozilla/* /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/.
or directly to your Firefox installation
Code:
#ln -s /usr/local/RealPlayer/mozilla/* /usr/lib/firefox-{version}/plugins/.

Well the instructions in my post above should work. Put the name of your current distro in your profile so that people don't keep asking you for it.

Reddaz,

Despite that I have installed the software, the realtime folder do not appears in the usr root file. This is the same 4 the rest of the plugins installed as well as Panda.

Hints? Thanks.

If you're using a 64-bit OS, the plugins don't work ... If you're using a 32-bit, keep trying.

...and put your distro info in your profile.

The distro is already in my profile. I updated yesterday. Fedora Core 5 updated.

I'm in 32-bits. When the DDR3 RAM Memory generation hits the market, I will put together a new PC, on Fedora hopefully. If I can run Quake 4 on it.

Yes, I'll keep trying.

Thanks.,
