    Default openSUSE 11.2: Adobe Flash Player Broken (Somewhat)

    Adobe Flash Player is somewhat broken in openSUSE 11.2. OK, it works in YouTube. But, as you may know, the Internets are series of tubes. So there are numerous troubles with other sites if you are using:


    • Firefox 3.5.5
    • Konqueror 4.3.3 "release 2" (KDE 3 Konqueror does not seem to recognize the plugin at all.)
    • Arora 0.10.1
    • Maybe your favourite browser? (Chrome?... )

    Here are some examples:



    Workarounds:


    • Just use the the Opera [sic] browser. (Firefox miraculously crashed when I was editing this line. It is very frightening... By sheer luck I had a copy of the post in the text buffer. So now I'm typing this in the Kwrite text editor hoping that the Divine Will will allow it to reach the forum.) However I think it should also be noted that if Gordon Brown starts to speak it is very hard to stop him (unless killall npviewer.bin or refresh tab with the video). I only managed to pause video using pause button once, though I have tried to do it numerous times.

    This did not help:


    • Installing flash-player package from openSUSE 11.1 Non-OSS repository (flash-player-10.0.12.36-4.4.i586.rpm)
    • Uninstalling mysterious pullin-flash-player package: "This README is the only content of this package. The only use of this package is to trigger update of the real flash-player package." Okay...
    • Renaming (moving) ~/.mozilla folder, so Firefox would start with default profile.
    • Restarting browsers and hoping that it will just work this time.


    Maybe, you can help?


    • Say, that everything works fine in your openSUSE 11.2 installation, so I can be sure, that my installation is corrupt and my system configuration is all wrong.
    • Say, what works correctly and what does not in your openSUSE 11.2 system (it would be nice if you post also browsers' versions).
    • Reveal a secret trick (or maybe wild shaman dance with tambourine), which will make everything work again.

    Also, a link (with the help of Google):
    FF 3.5.4 for SuSe 11.2 Linux does not play flash movies

    Thank you for your attention!

    Thank you, I have corrected it.
    How about three other examples?
    I though that they are not 'only bbc' and they all actually work in one well-known operating system.
    What do you think?

    Hmm, just to make sure: you have tested it on openSUSE 11.2?

    Thank you for the reply.

    I have found this old thread:
    Firefox flash plugin (10.0.32.18) broken - openSUSE Forums

    And then a link to this bug:
    https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=537788

    That seems to be the same problem.

    I will try workaround listed there and post back.

    Yes! The trick works.

    Add a line
    Code:
    export GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=1
    to this file
    Code:
    /usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/i386/linux/npviewer
    With this it should look like this:
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    TARGET_OS=linux
    TARGET_ARCH=i386
    export GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=1
    . /usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/noarch/npviewer
    Source:

    Are you saying you have nspluginwrapper installed? It's for _64 machines using 32 bit flash
