    flash in firefox


    Hey,

    Have to admit to being a total Linux novice, but am trying!

    I am currently trying to change my song on myspace *hangs head in shame* and when the music thing comes up the shockwave flash thing doesn't load properly.

    Is there any way that people know of to solve this problem?

    Cheers!

    Joe

    You need to install flash - you can do this quite easily through Automatix, just remember to restart firefox after it is installed.

    Alternatively, you can install the latest Flash 9 (beta 2) like that :

    ohh ! i checked it. its down.
    Automatix works like Synaptic. it uses its own sources list and provide you a list of available packages. Java, Flash, VLC, MPlayer, Opera and lot more. its very useful package.
