    Default Hulu Desktop 64 not working in Gnome 3.

    It worked perfectly in openSUSE 11.4 Gnome. Launching shows these errors.

    It's better to do an error search (on the Internet, I recommend DuckDuckGo not only for privacy, but also because it works better for Linux-related search) before actually posting a thread, it might be an error that is not specific to openSUSE distro, so the problem might be actually already solved. Check this thread [ubuntu] [Gdk-CRITICAL] Hulu Desktop Not Loading (errors included) - Page 2 - Ubuntu Forums where the OP claims that the GDK errors are caused by Shockwave Flash 11.2. Have a look and see if it works for you.

    The issue is with the most recent releases of Flash into the repos. The solution that worked for me was to download a previous version of Flash from Adobe's archived versions, in particular

    Found here:

    Archived Flash Player versions

    Simply extract and drill down until you find your distro (for me 11_1r102_62_64bit/flashplayer11_1r102_62_linux.x86_64) and copy the to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins and then point Hulu there in ~.huludesktop.

    flash_location = /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
    Good luck and Good watching!
