Lightspark 0.5.1 plugin does not work

I have just installed lightspark and browser-plugin-lightspark and tried to see some flash in iceweasel. I cannot make it work. I've tried several sites containing flash, and at all of them I can only see whitespace instead of flash.

The plugin is listed in Tools->Add-ons->Plugins and is enabled. It is also present in /proc/<iceweasel process id>/maps . Edit->Preferences->Applications also says that this plugin shuold be used for Shockvwave Flash. Adding (see ) in about:config does not change anything.

Well, that's a pretty bleeding edge alpha thing yet. I've tried if for some 30 minutes once and then I just went back to adobe's flash as I assumed it wasn't really ready (but might have been just some configuration issue really). Perhaps it can be made to work somewhat, but I guess you are more likely to find out how searching on the lightspark developer mail lists or something.
