Thread: Firefox and flash player problem in opensuse 11.4

  1. #1

    Default Firefox and flash player problem in opensuse 11.4

    I've upgraded my system from opensuse 11.2 to opensuse 11.4. Everything went smooth except one problem. Firefox does not run the flash (i.e. youtube videos for example). The weird thing it detect the flashlibs. from aboutlugins:

    Code:
    Shockwave Flash
    
        File: /usr/lib/browser-plugins/libflashplayer.so
        Version: 
        Shockwave Flash 10.2 r153
    On other side, konqueror runs flash vdeos without any problem. My system is 32bit.

    can anybody help?

    Maybe you can try to create a symblic link in ~/.mozilla/plugins/
    ln -s /usr/ib/browser-plugins/libflashplayer.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
