Fedora :: Install Flash Plugins For Firefox In 12?
Feb 7, 2010
whenever i opened some site that require some flash player plugin to play some video etc.It shows download plug-in when i click on it , firefox can't find respective plugin and there is option for manual install.
In that case i have downloaded flash plug-in from adobe website and install it with package installer.But again showing same problem...means download plug-in .
a few days ago, i lost the ability to play videos videos. googlin did no bring any useful solutions. i am using firefox 5 on fedora 15. nspluginwraper (both 32 and 64 bits) is installed. the system is running all the latest updates. flash plugin is working properly, displaying videos on other sites.
I am running fedora 13 and am having problems installing Java and Adobe Flash player to work on firefox. Whenever I try Java, it says plugin not avalible, and whenever I try Adobe, it says that it failed. Im sorry if this was posted before, I did look for it.
I am having trouble with a machine running fedora 10. I just upgraded the other day the latest flash via yum and now every time I navigate to someplace such as ..... firefox is telling me that mp3 and flash plugins are needed. I have reset firefox to defaults by moving the .default file and reopening, reinstalled firefox and flash-player-plugin, I have looked in /var/log/messages and found nothing. What the heck is going wrong with this install? Also, it is for all users on the machine.
I'm using 8.10, but wanted to upgrade firefox to the latest version, so I downloaded the tarball from their website and compiled that. FF 3.6 works fine, but I havn't been able to get my flash or java plugins to work since.
Restart the firefox and type aboutlugins, the java plugin does not exists. I went to the java website and test to see if jre is install in firefox, but could not detect. This is the permission for the firefox 3.6 dir in the /usr/lib path:
Is there a way to select different flash plugins to use (e.g. the Adobe one, one of the open source ones) without having to uninstall the one you don't want to use at the moment and install the one you do want to use? I know this exists for Java with the alternatives command - does it exist for Flash?
I've just come from a website that had mpeg and x-aiff audio files, neither of which Firefox would play. I got the "missing plugins" banner, but when I clicked on install I was told nothing suitable was available.I was able to play the files, by downloading with Download Helper and playing in Rhythmbox, but surely there should be some plugin?
There is a thread in this forum that points to this website [URL] as a place for good directions on getting the new Java and the new Firefox to cooperate with one another. I followed it and was unable to get that to happen. To test it I used the official U.S. clock website. Don't quite know what to ask, except what did I do wrong? I following the directions to the letter, but in the "aboutlugins" part, Java doesn't show up.
I failed to install flash-plugin on my firefox My firefox is installed on path "/home/<<user>>/firefox"
1) I tried to install flash plugin by rpm -Uvh flash-plugin-10.0.32.18-release-i386.rpm It is not working as the files are not installed on the folder /home/<<user>>/firefox/
2) yum install flash-plugin It returns "nothing to do"
3) I extracted and copied the files in the rpm to /home/<<user>>/firefox/flash-plugin then create a link by ln -s /home/<<user>>/firefox/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so /home/<<user>>/firefox/plugins/libflashplayer.so When I open the firefox, it crashed.
I just installed F11KDE, and I am trying to get it to run Flash content in Firefox. I have been searching for solutions for well over an hour and have found nothing that works. How can I get my installation of the Firefox browser to play Flash content. How do I install it? I have tried
# yum install flashplug-in or something to that effect, as well other attempts of different varieties, i.e.-rpm, yumex. Nothing is working.
I am doing something wrong. Just connected Fedora 14 to the internet. I wanted to do a speed test and this requires flash. I have download the linux (yum) version and tried to install adobe-release-i386-1.0-1.noarch.rpm no idea what is needed to be done next.
After a hiatus, I'm fussing with Fedora again. I'm using the 64 bit version of R13. A screen popped up saying I needed to apply fixes to the installion. The maintenance process fails, when tried several times.
FWIW, I get an analogous error associated with packages trying to install Flash into FireFox.
Is it possible that the package archive has been corrupted?
I just installed firefox and flash-plugin.The version of firefox is 3.0.10, package is firefox-3.0.10-1.el5.centos.The version of flash-plugin is 10.0.22.87, package is flash-plugin-10.0.22.87-1.el5.rf.But firefox crashes when there is flash in web page, unless disable flash plugin in firefox.
I just installed Adobe Flash Player 10 and it says it's installed, when I go to firefox and Epiphany it still has flash player 9, Ive quited the browsers and everything Ive uninstalled/reinstalled still no luck.
I just switched back to Ubuntu a few days ago for the first time in about a year or so. Running 8.04 (Hardy), because it was the disk I had around. Don't want to bother upgrading to the newest version just yet, as I have a good deal of homework I want to get done.
Anyways, I seem to have encountered an issue of not being able to run Flash in Firefox. For example, when I go to a ..... video, it tells me i need to install the plugin. So i've gone to the Flash website, downloaded the appropriate .deb file, and installed that. No change.
So I go back to a page that uses Flash, and click on the "Install Missing Plugins" button that appears. The popup says "Press next to install these plugins", but lists no plugins, and nothing gets installed.
I have a Power PC G4 Dual 1GHz Processor desktop and running Ubuntu Gnome 10.x.I cannot use any of the plugins on Adobe's Flash plugin download page- they all seem to require i386 series processors. Is there an alternative? Maybe from the Linux community that will work with the PPCG4 and also Ubuntu?
OS: Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit I tried to watch a video on Firefox through hulu.com and kept getting unresponsive script error upon the website showing up. On other occasions some websites would open up very slowly. So I went ahead and started looking up the problem on google, and found two areas where this may occur:
1.Google search toolbar or add-on in firefox which I cannot find how in the world to disable since it seems to come inside the firefox package (I tried edit-preferences-addon- its not listed). 2.Adobe Flash Player: I disabled it and the websites are no longer slow, but now I cannot watch the video on hulu.com which is the main reason why I opened firefox. So I went ahead and installed Adobe Flash again, but it doesn't seem to want to work. Gnash and the other program (I forgot the name) install properly on Firefox but Adobe Flash Player keeps giving me errors. This is one of them when I tried downloading and installing it from terminal:
Code: Flash Plugin installed. nspluginwrapper: no appropriate viewer found for /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so dpkg: error processing flashplugin-installer (--configure): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1 dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of flashplugin-nonfree: flashplugin-nonfree depends on flashplugin-installer; however:
Honestly I wish all the websites would make their flash videos more compatible with other program, but for time being the Flash Monopoly still continues. Anyways, any solution or possible work-around?
By the way, as some of you may know Adobe Flash player doesn't support Google chrome for Linux (chromium). I would really hate to have to switch to my Vista Hard Drive just to see a video on Firefox.
I am using RHEL4.4 ES with mozilla firefox 220.127.116.11. I am unable to load flash player. The instruction says locate the installation directory of mozilla. That I am unable to find. There is no such directory as /usr/lib/mozilla<version no> in my system. But /usr/lib/firefox<version no> directory is present. I tried by copying the lib.so file in the plugin directory of firefox, but it is not working. Please can some body guide me which version of flash player I should install and hoe to install.
I want to install "gst-plugin-base" but i get this error: "this version of gst-plugin-base needs glib 2.20 but installed version of glib is 2.18". I installed glib 2.20 and now I'm trying to install gst-plugin-base but i get that error again.
I heard all about the awesomeness of Firefox 4 and decided to ditch the old Fedora default one (3.6.16). I put the firefox folder in the .mozilla directory and I run it from there. The problem is that the only plugin I have is the 64-bit Flash plugin (because it is the only one in the plugins folder in the .mozilla directory). I have no idea where the other plugins for things like Adobe Reader an VLC are. If anyone knows Fedora well, I want my plugins to work in the new Firefox.
