Re: [K12OSN] Adobe Flash

I'm running K12LTSP-EL5-64 (The 64-bit Centos-based version) in a one-room multi-grade school. The teacher wants to send some of the kids to a flash-based website while she instructs others, but for the life of me, I cannot seem to get Flash working.

I went to adobe and followed their instructions (which is where the wiki directs me anyhow). I did a "yum update flash-plugin" and everything was peaches.

Since you don't mention it at this point, here's what worked on my system
using Seamonkey:

cd /usr/lib64/seamonkey-1.1.17/plugins
ln -s  /usr/local/lib64/libflashplayer.so

Firefox doesn't have a plugins directory, but you might try making the
link in /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins.

The next step is to verify that the plug-in is installed by pointing Firefox to about:plugins. But there is no joy there. FF reports no plugins at all.

Almost everything I find about flash for K12LTSP has to do with getting sound to work, and almost nothing about getting flash itself to work. Maybe that will be useful next week...

I also tried the 64-bit version of flash, but got exactly the same result for my efforts: nothing.

I update FF to the latest in the Centos repo (some minor rev to version 3), and was met with the same result.
