Help - No flashplayer in Firefox

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
**cd /usr/lib/browser-plugins/
ln -s /usr/lib/flash-plugin/ ./

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!
