    Question Macromedia Flash Player and Konqueror


    Hi. I'm a linux newbie, and I just installed Mandriva Free 2007 the other day. For some reason, I can not get Macromedia Flash Player to work while using Konqueror (i.e. to play youtube videos). However, flash plays fine while using Mozilla Firefox, and Konqueror is set to scan for plugins in Mozilla's plugins directory. I can hear the sounds of the flash video, and I can even press the buttons in the flash player. However, there is no image and it all looks like a gray box. Any ideas on what this could be ??

    I am not sure precisely which plugin or addon does the trick for YouTube and the like. I install a whole bunch that I have found over the last few years does the trick. So I shall list the ones I use.
    I suggest you use the uninstall facility to first check which ones you already have. I am not saying you should uninstall anything - it is just an easy way to see what is already installed.

    flash-player-plugin-9.0.21.78.1plf2007.0
    streamtuner-0.99.99-6mdk
    streamtuner-plugins-0.99.99-6mdk
    streamripper-1.61.18-1mdk
    ksreamripper-0.3.3-2mdv2007.0


    You should find these, or something very similar by searching for the first word in each case.

    Let me know (by email if necessary) if you have any problems getting these because I have used smart-urpmi to change my sources of software and updates.

    Good luck
