Been having problems with flash, and I really need some help.
I have tried to uninstall and reinstall in yast
no luck. uninistalled again.
I downloaded and installed Adobe Flash 10 rpm direct from adobe.
I shut down firefox and then restarted…went to youtube…
no luck. I get the annoying error:
in yast i have:
Flash is doing the same thing in Konqueror / Firefox
in Opera it videos load, but there is no sound!
In firefox: edit > preferences > applications, there is nothing that says flash!
are there other files that I may be missing? How do I tell?
Any suggestions is greatly appreciated.
If you are _64bit as your sig implies. You need nspluginwrapper installed, do you?
Thank you for responding.
Yes I am running 64bit.
First off NO, I didnt have nspluginwrapper installed. I went into YAST, istalled [1.2.2-11.1] and rebooted. I still get that annoying error:
I decided to uninstall:
reboot, and reinstalled the 3 items above, and rebooted again.
also note that things work in OPERA albeit it is unbearable choppy video & sound (regardless of website)
thank you for your time
I wasnt aware of this site:
and I searched for flash, selected one of the one click installs for 64bit and selected one of the adobe flash plugin and player installs for 11.2 and rebooted, now it is working:
when I check out yast I find the following:
flash-player 10.0.32.18-2.6(10.0.32.18-3.2.1) [64bit]
flash-plugin 10.0.42.34-release [32 bit]
those 1 click installs are nice, but seem as if they could be quite dangerous… I may be naive but is there any screening process for the one click installs on opensuses site?
flash-plugin 32bit on a 64bit machine does require nspluginwrapper
But 64bit flash-player works fine on it’s own.
I wasn’t aware that there was now a Oneclick for this. I never use Oneclicks anyway. They are OK but it can be that you end up with duplications of repos, as it seems the oneclick installer is unable to asses your current repo list, so it adds by default all those the install will require. In the case of flash here, you are probably fine.
As far as I know, it requires user ingenuity to deselect and modify anything the oneclick proposes. There is no screening.
