Ubuntu Installation :: FireFox Refuses To Recognize Flash Update

Aug 15, 2010

Firefox refuses to recognize the upgrade--in existing user accounts only! I created a new account & Firefox picked the upgrade right up. I'm ready to reinstall Firefox or start with all new user accounts--but either option seems to be extreme overkill.

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
Firefox 3.6.8
Adobe Flash Player 10.1 r82 (old accounts are stuck at 9.x)

OpenSUSE :: Kpackagekit Updates Refuses To Install Flash Player Update?

Jun 12, 2011

I've found the following irritating problem with the default update applet in 11.4 (the one available in 'Software Management' in the KDE system settings):

Applet prompts to update the system, click Apply updates
Accept licence agreement for flash player update

The applet goes back to listing the available updates - ie. it doesn't run the update The workaround is to untick the flash player update, run the other updates and then do the flash player update by itself.

Ubuntu Installation :: G++ Dependency - Refuses To Recognize USB WLan Adapte

May 28, 2010

I am trying to install the g++ package (I actually hoped it was already installed on default, but it wasn't). $sudo apt-get install g++ however won't install the g++ package, instead it will tell me it depends on g++-4.3 (and is not going to be installed) and gcc-4.3 (and cannot be installed) .

how the heck I'm supposed to install g++ when I have to have g++ installed to make it work... (Oh, and I don't have an internet connection either, because Ubuntu simply refuses to recognize my USB WLan Adapte

Fedora :: Firefox Wants To Update Flash Plugin?

Oct 29, 2009

Fedora 11, 32-bit, updated daily manually via yum (console). Today got the Firefox update to 3.5.4. After restarting Firefox, the fist page reads: "You should update Adobe Flash Player right now." The link leads to Adobe site, which offers me Flash Player version All is fine so far, excluding the fact that I already have this player:

[root@pc ~]# rpm -qa | grep flash

Just for the record, on "aboutlugins" page Firefox confirms I do have the correct player version:

Shockwave Flash
File name: libflashplayer.so
Shockwave Flash 10.0 r32

Does it mean Firefox does not detect correctly the Flash plugin version? Or am I missing something?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.4 Refuses To Recognize Epson Stylus Color 600 Printer?

Mar 24, 2011

In 11.3 I used an Epson Stylus Color 600 which worked well enough.

Now I'm quite disappointed that this so called 'best version ever' (11.4) refuses to recognize this printer.

The modules parport, parport_pc, and lp are all loaded. My printer is on and connected, but OpenSuse claims that there is nothing.

Slackware :: Firefox Update And Slackbuild Flash Plugin

Yesterday I updated firefox following the security mailing to
When starting the new firefox I got the message that I should update my flash plugin. I use the slackbuild for flash so I already had the version


So I tried to open [URL] to see if there are any new versions, but no luck. It seems Adobe has changed the setup and I could only download a libflashplayer without any version number whatsoever... Should I trust this? Should I wait for Robby to update the slackbuild script?

Slackware :: Firefox Refuses To End Properly

Mar 22, 2011

Running FF 3.6.13 on Slack 13.1 (32-bit). Every time that I use FF when I close it the processes that are spawned when it starts never end. I have to manually go and kill them. It is pretty annoying more than an inconvenience since I don't normally use FF. Unfortunately I have to use it, every now and then, for some things and if I need to restart it I have to open a terminal and kill the processes.

I've tried re-installing on top of the version that I have there, and actually uninstalling and installing it again (of course making sure that all of the directories are gone), I've also tried renaming my ~/.mozilla directory (in case there is a problem with the profile).

I just reinstalled my Firefox after a extension problem. Now it will not open my bookmark file I exported before the reinstall. It just goes to the folder above it, which is Ubuntu One.

Fedora Installation :: Adobe-flash For Firefox Installation (installed But Not Working)?

Sep 13, 2010

I am having trouble getting adobe-flash to properly work on fedora. I have done it before but on a different distribution, and i am migrating to fedora. Here is the output and command that i used for installation of adobe-flash (below). I dont know what else could be causing the problem, note: i restarted firefox after installation accordingly. I tired upload the code and the forums system said

Ubuntu Servers :: Networking - Machine Refuses To Give Access To The Internet Via Firefox

Sep 21, 2010

I have a machine (lets called it machine 1) with two networks card, eth0 and eth1. Both have static IPs. Once in a while the machine refuses to give access to the Internet via Firefox (eth0 is the route to router). Other machines on the network have no problems accessing the Internet. Eventually the machine would just magically start working again, but this time it just seems to have stayed broken. I've done some simple diagnostics and found:

a) I have another machine running Apache with a Wiki on our network - [URL]. Machine 1 is unable to connect to this Wiki. I get 'the connection has timed out'. I can ping and it responds in the usual fashion.

b) If I try to ping www.google.com it times out with: ping: unknown host www.google.com. I can ping google using its IP address.

c) On machine 1 I have tried traceroute on both www.google.com and its IP and I just get:

1 * * *
2 * * *

And so on until hop 30. Doing this on any other machine on the network works. So while it seems I can ping internally in our network and outside, but when it attempts anything traceroute or URL related it does not work.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: XBMC Refuses To Update Correctly?

Jan 6, 2010

28/12/2009 I installed Ubuntu minimal AMD64 and followed the following guide to install it as an HTPC using XBMC. Note that that date was after XBMC's 9.11 official release.[URL]...give and take really minor adaptions, since the guide is not entirely 1 on 1. The process installed XBMC Beta 1 though.

Now, when I do:
- sudo apt-get update / upgrade
The result is:
The following packages have been kept back:


libsdl1.2debian-alsa: Conflicts: libsdl1.2debian-pulseaudio but 1.2.13-4ubuntu4 is to be installed.libsdl1.2debian-pulseaudio: Conflicts: libsdl1.2debian-alsa but 1.2.13-4ubuntu4 is installed. sudo aptitude -> g -> results in a list of 45 files which will be automatically removed. Some of these are libvdpau1, pkg-config, pmount, xinit, xserver-common, xserver-xorg, *-core, *-input-all, *-evdev, *-mouse, *-synaptics etc. A lot of which are needed as aptitude reports by the package xbmc-common, which I suppose XBMC needs to operate.

I do not want to "autoremove". I did that before and that resulted in having a corrupted system and hence the new installation of 28/12. Any idea what is wrong? Why wasn't the official release installed and was Beta1 chosen instead? Why does Aptitude propose to have all these necessary packages deleted? And of course, why am I not able to upgrade to XBMC's latest and final version? How can I?

Fedora :: X Refuses To Load After Update On 12

Mar 13, 2010

I installed my updates this morning, except for the nss packages which refused to work. So I just installed the other packages and left the nss package. When I rebooted my computer X would not load. I managed to track down an error by typing "startx" from the command line:


symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libXi.so.6: undefined symbol: XESetWireToEventCookie

All I did was update my computer and have not done anything else to the system. Also, I found this: [URL] And I can not but notice that the version of libX11 available from yum is not 1.3.3. Could there have been a packaging error with the updates?

Ubuntu Installation :: Firefox Flash Plugin Broke After Upgrade To 10.04?

May 25, 2010

I had the Adobe flash plugin working under 09.10 in Firefox; now after the upgrade to 10.04, it doesn't work.When I go to a web page with flash video, I get the message "Some plugins are not installed" and video will not display. I click on the button to install the plugins and select Adobe Flash. I get the message "Package is already installed." I go back to the web page and the same thing happens again.In Ubuntu Software Center I see that package restricted-extras is installed.

I tried going through Tools / Add-ons in Firefox, but the list of add-ons wouldn't load at all that way.I also tried going to Adobe's web site, but for versions of Ubuntu 09 and later it offers an "APT" file instead of a .deb. Firefox asks what application to use to open an "APT" file and I don't know what to tell it... I'd be fine downloading a .deb or using apt-get or Ubuntu Software Center though.
