Thread: Flash player

  1. #1

    Default Flash player

    I am grateful for all our friends who helped in my previous thread.

    Now my printer is working.

    The firefox browser has a small hitch.

    The flash player is not working.

    I know the problem is that Adobe is not making one for 64 bit platform.

    It asked me to download a file and install. I did that.
    The installation worked fine.

    However, the problems is still there.

    I need your help.

    --------------------------------------------------------------
    I had this problem in the past.

    A person in this forum helped me to solve the problem.

    It was nearly 2 years ago.

    If my memory serves well, his name is 'leigh123' and he lives in England.

    If I understand correctly, you have 64 bit OpenSuse installed (including 64 bit FireFox) and the flash player doesn't work.

    If I understand the solution correctly, you will have to install 32 bit FireFox in order to have 32 bit FlashPlayer working.

    Not True.
    You can use _64 FF and Flash - it just requires nspluginwrapper

    You should be installing via Yast and the repo's really.

    I thank bigrigdriver and caf4926 for the replies.

    You have given me some clues to solve the problem.

    First I will try what caf4926 has suggested.

    Could you please tell me the exact name of the nspluginwrapper?


    I will try to download it using YAST.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    I have installed 64 bit open SUSE 11.0. My computer is a 64 bit one. The Firefox is bundled with the open SUSE 11.0 package. It should be the 64 bit version.

    You say try to install.??

    It really is easy.

    Go to Yast - Software Repositories
    add
    use default (by url) next
    Name: Mozilla
    url: Index of /repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_11.0
    Finish

    You should also have in the repo:
    Index of /distribution/11.0/repo/oss
    Index of /distribution/11.0/repo/non-oss
    Index of /update/11.0
    these should be here by default

    You might want to add (Packman)
    Index of /pub/linux/misc/packman/suse/11.0

    The thing is flash should just work out of the box. But anyway, now go to:
    Yast - Software Management
    Sort by Repositories (from the drop box-top left)
    Select Mozilla
    Now you should see the Packages for the Mozilla Repo on the right and probably you will see BLUE in the installed/avail column
    Now go to the Package Tab (top left)
    Go down the drop box to All in this List
    select update unconditionally
    check to see nspluginwrapper is marked as installed.
    Click accept (lower right)

    When done
    Try FF

    report back
    if problem
    open FF
    in address bar type:
    HTML Code:
    about:plugins
    paste here

    Thanks caf for the reply.

    I didn't find time to attend this today.

    I went to work and went to the gym for training too.

    I came home home almost an hour ago. I am tired now.

    I will find time to do this tomorrow.

    Please keep a good watch on this thread.

    I will ask your help if necessary.

    Today I found time at last to do this. I mean the step suggested byh caf4926.

    Everything worked fine.

    Finally I opened a webbrowser and wrote 'aboutlugins'.


    The following is the output.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    No plugins are installed
    Find more information about browser plugins at mozilla.org.
    Help for installing plugins is available from plugindoc.mozdev.org.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    What is the problem?

    ok, you have the FF from OSS or the Mozilla repo I gave you - Yes?

    Try installing Seamonkey and try it

    also go to
    /usr/lib64/browser-plugins

    check for
    npwrapper.so
    npwrapper.libflashplayer.so

    I was very busy for the last few days. Today I have some time to attend this.

    I tried in vain this.

    You asked me to do the following:

    ----------------------------------------------------------
    also go to

    /usr/lib64/browser-plugins

    check for
    npwrapper.so
    npwrapper.libflashplayer.so
    -----------------------------------------------------------

    You should give me the exact URL.
    It doesn't find /usr/lib64/browser-plugins.
    Please tell me the exact URL.
    I am waiting a reply from you again.


    It should be something like the following URLs.

    Index of /distribution/11.0/repo/oss

    Index of /repositories/mozilla/openSUSE_11.0/x86_64
