Firefox flash plugin directory


Installed Slackware 13.37 over the weekend. Good so far.

Problem with Firefox though as it does not have a plugins directory where we can move libflashplayer.so into like in previous versions. Where do we put it to file Firefox (and Seamonkey) to play flash.

You can try the following at the command line:

Code:
cd ~/.mozilla
mkdir plugins
cd plugins
Now you can link or copy the plugins to your new plugin directory. Enjoy!

You should put any plugins in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ (or /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/ if you use Slackware 64)

Regards

An even better idea would be to install the flash player plugin via the flash-player-plugin slackbuild.
