Default Shockwave Flash

Hi all


Been playing with this for days, but just don't have a clue about what
I'm supposed to be doing or looking for to help.


Attempting to install shockwave flash so I can view swf files in a web
browser.


It isn't working for me, but what makes it worse is I can't seem to
find any real information in any log files. So I am obviously looking in
the wrong place or I haven't turned on logging for any browser.


Browsers: Firefox, google-chrome, chromium, iceweasel


Shockwave appears as a plugin in firefox but not in others.


Any comments would be most helpful.


Regards


Fred

Can you view a Shockwave site, such as www.homestarrunner.com?

Issues with the flash player are not placed in the usual log files. I
would first look at "aboutlugins" and check if the plugin is listed
there.

Why are you duplicating the browsers? Firefox → Iceweasel and Chrome →
Chromium >:-?

Anyway, how did you install the Flash Player plugin? Also note that
Google's browser installs its own version of the plugin.

Adobe's flash plugin is available in the non-free section of Debian
repositories. You don't have to pay for it, but it comes with the usual
proprietary license. Attempting to install from other sources is not a
good idea.

Do you have recent experience with gnash? The last time I tried it, it
didn't work very well. I'd prefer to use it over proprietary software.

I suggest using apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree in order to install
the flash player. For Squeeze you might need a version from squeeze-
backports.

But in case you did use something else to install the flash player get rid
of that first.

For some stuff gnash or lightspark might be okay, last weeks I test again
with them and too much stuff still was not working nicely. So take care
that your flashplugin-nonfree is selected:

merkaba:~> LANG=C update-alternatives --display flash-mozilla.so
flash-mozilla.so - auto mode
link currently points to /usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/libflashplayer.so
/usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/libflashplayer.so - priority 50
/usr/lib/gnash/libgnashplugin.so - priority 10
/usr/lib/lightspark/liblightsparkplugin.so - priority 0
Current 'best' version is '/usr/lib/flashplugin-
nonfree/libflashplayer.so'.

flashplugin-nonfree is the Debian way to install Adobe Flash.

Ciao,
