all i had to do to get it working was put the flashplayer.xpt file in the /usr/lib/firefox/components directory and the file in the /usr/lib/firefox/plugins directory... but i'm on firefox - on mozilla it's likely you just need to copy both files to your plugins directory... personally, i find it better to copy the files manually than to use the installer...

leafleaves 06-23-2005 03:03 AM hundred percent agree with your view,your opinion.
i just llike to configure the system.
just copy the files manually to the plugins directory.

haha.--------- DIY do it yourself.

but one problem,
the website link you give me,my dear friend,
is not the linux or bsd flash pluins files.

what does you want to tell me ,my dear friends????????????

win32sux 06-23-2005 03:24 AM

that's weird, AFAIK the webpage will detect which OS you are using and send you to the respective download page... hmmm... maybe it only detects windows and linux... anyways, here's the direct link to the solaris page:

make sure you read the instructions cuz they might be a little different than linux...

leafleaves 06-23-2005 03:46 AM

thank you,my dear budy ---win32sux,

i have got it.

you say,
a little different mean a little hard,

a little hard to use or install the solars flash plugins .

the instructions means directions books,

also say manual.right???

win32sux 06-23-2005 03:55 AM

what i meant was that the way to install the flash plugin on solaris might be a little different than the way it is on linux... but i have no idea, maybe it's the same, i just haven't read the installation instructions for the solaris version...

anyways, did you get it working already??

leafleaves 06-23-2005 04:12 AM

no ,i am read web page now.
i will try later.
and few monts ,ought to say half year ago.
i have installed the solars ten point zero edition.

but cant play flash on the explorer.
i am got tired to do it.but still cant get the questions answers from internet.
i dont know how to do and how to get the flash plusins files.
although i know the flash Macromedia website, but the website is really turmoil .i am confuse about it.
how to get the solaris flash file.
cant find it untill you give me now,
so really thank you ,
you make me to pick up solaris and go on study it.

now i will try soon.

Installing the flash player on Solaris is not that difficult, it's a four steps process:

- download the plugin from the location, using the target browser on the target O/S (i.e. Solaris).

- untar the retrieved file:

gunzip < flash_player_7_solaris_x86_r53.tar.gz | tar xvf -
- run the installer or just copy and flashplayer.xpt to either the global or your private plugin directory

# cd install_flash_player_7_solaris
# cp flashplayer.xpt ~/.mozilla/plugins

- restart your browser on the about:plugins pseudo URL, it should show the shockwave flash plugin is there.

so really appreciate so many strange friends help me.
my friend, i have following your few steps you taugh me.
my web browse have work ,it can play flash,okay.congratulations.
so easy, but i have study and waiting for half year.
so thanks again. really!!!!

the solaris 10.0 ,the mozilla plugin path is a little different from what you tell me below.

but i using the solaris search file fucntion ,and find the plugins location .and copy the two flash play plugins files into the certainly folder and directery.;

leafleaves 06-23-2005 05:32 AM

the solaris .tar.gz file ,to want to unzip it, it will be two steps ,this point is really different from the linux package.

and the other steps like linux package installing.
do you think so,my friend??

win32sux 06-23-2005 05:35 AM


tar xvzf flash_player_7_solaris_sparc_r53.tar.gz
