since installing openSUSE (linux 18.104.22.168-1.1-pae)GM, konqueror (3.5.9 release 49.1) gets an error about nspluginviewer not found. Backtrace mentions flashplayer. Search of system shows nspluginviewer in following locations:
Location size date
/usr/bin 81748 2008-06-08
/opt/kde3/bin 134656 2008-06-06
Which is the correct one and which file points konqueror to it?
The only time I have seen something like that with konqueror was on a failing hard drive. Does this happen when you first launch konqueror, or when you try to open a specific file.
How confident are you that your installation was good? Can you compare:
a. the md5sum listed on openSUSE site for 11.0 against
b. the md5sum calcluated from the iso file on your hard drive for the opensuse11.0 downlaod against
c. the md5sum from your burned installation cd/dvd
I had the same the first few days…
Now that I have updated all files and installed Gnome next to KDE3.5 & KDE4.0 I have had no more of these messages.
(both my HDD’s are new, so that could not have been the problem).
I checked all of my downloads from the repo’s with md5sum, all checked correct. I last installed RC1 and then upgraded from the repo’s. I had this problem since alpha1. No indication hard drive is failing, my drive are about 1 year old. I’ll check logs. I do not get nspluginviewer fails on Firefox 3.0.
The failures occur typically when I open certain url’s, that appear to use the flashplayer.
