Flash player plugin problem


It seems that after i install flash player 10 ( stand alone and plugin ), only konqueror browser will play videos from like youtube. Mozilla Firefox still ask for a missing plugin. What`s the problem?

Hi together,

if you download the libflashplayer-10.0.22.87.linux-x86_64.so.tar.gz from adobe, you'll do
Code:
tar xf libflashplayer-10.0.22.87.linux-x86_64.so.tar.gz 
cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins
as root. This works on my 64bit system, 32 bit should work similar.

Yes, I can confirm that this works for 32 bit.

Incidentally, the file 'flashplayer-installer' no longer seems to be packaged in the Adobe Download, therefore the install process needs to be more of the more 'manual' form.

Actually, Slackware64 has a SlackBuild for the flashplayer plugin: http://slackware.osuosl.org/slackwar...gin.SlackBuild

Only the script has been included (along with a slack-desc file) and not the actual package because of licencing restrictions. But the resulting package installs the flash library into /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins so that all mozilla-based browsers can profit from it.

With a little creativity you can use that same SlackBuild script to create a package for 32bit Slackware (it's just that the download URL for the 32bit library does not work right now).
