I cant get flashplayer to work in Firefox 3.0. I had it going but I had no sound so I messed around with something in the terminal and no Flash has gone completely.:’(
What did you do in the terminal? If you removed Flash with zypper or rpm, it should simply be a matter of installing it again.
I did this:
As su in a console
mv libflashplayer.so libflashplayer.so-old
ln -s /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so ./libflashplayer.so
Try removing the package libflashsupport
Again remember the repos are down
Post result of
rpm -qi flash-player

I spent a happy period of time trying to get flash working via RPMs and tar files. In the end the old truth of ‘If at first you don’t succeed - read the instructions’ came home to me. The RPM install was working fine but I had missed the link instruction (last line above) After that it was firing on all cylinders.
here you go:

I don’t have a “/usr/lib/flash-plugin” directory. Will you double-check that? Your link file might be orphaned.
I have removed libflashsupport, what do I do now?
Is flash not working?
I got it working now, cheers!
