I looked at that tutorial and it makes mention of nspluginwrapper, but never
tells you how to use it. I am not sure if this is the problem, but what I do
is install the flash plugin to the normal directory,
/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins (note that I am using the experimental 64-bit
plugin, while you would install to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins).
Then, I run, as root (not sure if you need to cd /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins,
but it can't hurt, just in case):
I am guessing that selinux blocks the flash content (selinux is always the
scapegoat, even if it is not at fault), because it is not wrapped, hence you
get the blank box. This should cure it. At least, it all works fine here :-)
lugins and you should see the flash plugin enabled. Alternately,
on the menu bar, click tools/addons/plugins.
You can edit /etc/sysconfig/nspluginwrapper to adjust to your needs, but I
have not bothered making changes here.
Hope this helps.
