flash animation text input field shows nothing
Hi, when I play flash animation from flash under linux (Fedora Core 5) with firefox, the text input field shows a cursor so small (about 2 pixels high and 1 pixel width, and blinking like a cursor) and nothing shows up when I type.

Is there a way to set a display font for text input field in flash animation? The display looks fine, but it looks like flash animation is setting a non-existent font for text entry fields.

I can see the entry text from windows under firefox, so it must be related to fonts.

Hate to find that this is one of the FAQs, but I found the solution:

Basically, Xorg 7.0 got rid of /usr/X11R6/lib but flash player 7 is hard-coded to use it. Solution:


mkdir -p /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fs
ln -s /etc/X11/fs/config /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fs/config
