well done. My topic ended up being a bit of lesson in what can happen if you stray outside synaptic for too long? I had almost forgotten that I was running v 10.70 which I think I may have obtained via Synaptic at a short time when it was available but within short time complaints arose from members and I believe it was removed going back to v 10.63. I found the version 10.70 works particularly well for me (only lately have I conceded to use flash player) until I now see that I have a missing element.
When I posted the information you refer to, my suspicion awakened to the version number and when I luckily noticed that Bald Brick
has a slightly different result when showing his ls -l
of the flash file I got really interested.General
As I also have an install of MiniMe 2010.07 fully updated KDE 4.5.2
with Opera 10.70, I started MiniMe and confirmed that Opera had the same problem with flash. I use the MiniMe mainly for testing at present so I decided to re-install Opera which resulted in Opera 10.63 being installed. When doing the ls -l
on the flash file I got exactly the same as Bald Brick
earlier. At this stage I was pretty sure you people very likely was running Opera 10.63.
Since I have updated the MiniMe to KDE 4.5.3 expecting this to fix the Opera problem. I re-installed Opera 10.63 but I still have problems with flash on that system. Asking me to update Adobe Flashplayer. I do get a message about failing symlink:
While installing package flash-player-plugin-10.1.102.64-1pclos2010:
ln: creating symbolic link `/usr/lib/xulrunner-22.214.171.124/plugins/libflashplayer.so': No such file or directory
error: %post(flash-player-plugin-10.1.102.64-1pclos2010.i586) scriptlet failed, exit status 1
I am not sure this is important as I do not know the purpose of xulrunner
, something Mozilla related I think.Solution
Finally after I was pointed in the right direction as to download Mirrors I downloaded MiniMe 2010.10 ran it up and just installed Opera 10.63, and this works like a charm running flash based videos. I can of course immediately re-install MiniMe but I am a bit relcuctant as I am not going to learn much from doing that. So I may just pursue a fix to see why re-installing Opera 10.63, or downgrading Opera to 10.63 on what looks like a perfectly updated MiniMe KDE 4.5.2 to 4.5.3 fails?
Any suggestions as what I should look at based on following sequence?
1.. Fully Updated, lightly customised MiniMe KDE 4.5.2 with Opera 10.70
2.. Reinstalled Opera wheich went to Opera 10.63 plus the Xulrunner error
3.. Fully updated MiniMe to KDE 4.5.3
4.. Re-installed Opera 10.63 --> Opera 10.63
Opera will not run flash videos from you-tube, and I don't know if anything else is not working. Perhaps some configuration file is kept over when re-installing without completely removing Opera First
