Thread: Flash problem on 11.2

  1. #1

    Default Flash problem on 11.2

    Hi,

    I've got issues with flash on 11.2, youtube and some other sites work fine when playing videos. However other sites with embedded flash movies don't always work

    For example this one
    BBC News - Octopus snatches coconut and runs

    I click on play and nothing happens. I've removed flash and reinstalled but still same issue - this is what I currently have installed.

    S | Name | Summary | Type
    --+--------------+------------------------------------------+--------
    i | flash-player | Adobe Flash PlugIn and standalone Player | package
    i | flash-player | flash-player: Fix compatibility issues | patch

    I have read elsewhere that it maybe down to java

    And these are the java components I have installed

    S | Name | Summary | Type
    --+-----------------------+--------------------------------------------+--------
    i | java-1_6_0-sun | Java(TM) 6 Runtime Environment | package
    i | java-1_6_0-sun | java-1_6_0-sun: Update to security updat-> | patch
    i | java-1_6_0-sun-plugin | Browser plugin files for java-1_6_0-sun | package
    i | timezone-java | Timezone Descriptions | package


    Does anyone have any ideas please?

    Thank you

    Hmm - ok thanks. I'm running 32bit Opensuse. Is it worth me trying to find 32bit versions of those missing packages?

    Thanks

    Istalling more packages will not hurt: install from repositories all relevant packages.

    I am running 64 bit.

    I've got the same problem running 64bit openSUSE 11.2 Given that everything had been working fine in the weeks since 11.2 was installed right up until about two days ago (Dec 13th or so), I wonder if some sort of update caused the problem? Interestingly, other controls in Flash still work. For example, I can make Flash full screen, change the volume, move the slider as if changing where in movie I was.

    OK, this is odd. When I log in as root, Flash works fine. Is there any security setup with Flash?

    either uninstall nspluginwrapper or
    edit /usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/i386/linux/npviewer (for 32bit system)
    add
    export GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=1
