    Default Flash used to work in 11.0 now broken in 11.1


    Hi all,

    Flash doesn't work in Mozilla Firefox 3.0.5 on OpenSUSE 11.1 x64.

    I upgraded from 11.0 where it worked perfectly.

    I have tried using gnash as well as the flash plugin from the
    repository and nothing seems to work.

    I also can't view an swf when I double click on it in konqueror file
    browser.

    Suggestions please?

    Thanks
    Nathan

    Nathan,

    works here. Here's the flash related stuff I have installed:

    titanium:/home/uwe # rpm -qa | grep flash
    libflashsupport-1.2-4.20
    pullin-flash-player-11.1-1.1
    flash-player-10.0.15.3-1.1

    What do you have installed?

    Uwe

    Remarkably similar, actually:

    [nathan@ebisu ~] rpm -qa | grep flash
    libflashsupport-1.2-4.20
    flash-player-10.0.15.3-1.1
    pullin-flash-player-11.1-1.1

    Nathan,

    when you temporarily rename your ~/.mozilla folder or try it with a different user, do you see the same problem?
    Can you open swf files through Dolphin? Can you open them from the flash player application directly?

    * Happens in Mozilla no matter the user/profile
    * I haven't tried Dolphin, but Konqueror doesn't work
    * I can't open files from the flash player application.

    When I run the application on the command line, it acts broken:
    [nathan@ebisu ~] flashplayer /home/nathan/raid/media/flash/JBI.swf
    WARNING: environment variable G_FILENAME_ENCODING set and it is not
    UTF-8
    sh: pactl: command not found
    Segmentation fault

    Searching for the warning gives a 'bug report'
    (http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-b.../msg02016.html) that
    seems to be inconclusive.

    However, pactl is the controller program for pulse audio, included in
    pulseaudio-utils. I installed that package from the repos.

    Now when I run the command I get this:
    [nathan@ebisu ~] flashplayer /home/nathan/raid/media/flash/JBI.swf
    WARNING: environment variable G_FILENAME_ENCODING set and it is not
    UTF-8

    Other flash movies I downloaded do the same thing.

    Thanks for the help thus far.
    Nathan

    Nathan,

    my console output looks identical, apart from the segfault :-(

    Sorry, I have no idea other than a stupid reinstall of the flash related RPMs.

    Hmm, I got it to work by uninstalling libflashsupport. Probably one of
    the dependencies for that got uninstalled when I upgraded (OpenSUSE
    seems to 'have lots of problems with doing an upgrade install'
    (http://tinyurl.com/axfmyx)).

    If I have time I'll try and figure out what dependency is missing.

    Thanks for the help.
    Nathan

    Nathan,

    thanks for the feedback, that's interesting.
    I never do upgrades, I always format the / partition and just keep my /home

    I used to do that, but every time I would lose some customized file in
    /etc I'd forgotten to back up >_<

    Thanks, that fixed it. Looks like I was missing a few other pulseaudio
    packages. Maybe the OpenSUSE updater should run that command before it
    finishes

    I appreciate the help
