    Default Help - No flashplayer in Firefox

    I cant get flashplayer to work in Firefox 3.0. I had it going but I had no sound so I messed around with something in the terminal and no Flash has gone completely.

    What did you do in the terminal? If you removed Flash with zypper or rpm, it should simply be a matter of installing it again.

    I did this:

    As su in a console
    cd /usr/lib/browser-plugins/
    mv libflashplayer.so libflashplayer.so-old
    ln -s /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so ./libflashplayer.so

    I spent a happy period of time trying to get flash working via RPMs and tar files. In the end the old truth of 'If at first you don't succeed - read the instructions' came home to me. The RPM install was working fine but I had missed the link instruction (last line above) After that it was firing on all cylinders.
    It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong.

    I don't have a "/usr/lib/flash-plugin" directory. Will you double-check that? Your link file might be orphaned.
