what is confusing me is that in synaptic, it says that i have flashplayer-nonfree, flashplugin-nonfree and libflashsupport all installed.
if i navigate to a site that needs the flash plugin, i get the "install missing plugin button" so i click it. it goes through the installation process, i restart firefox and it still tells me that i need to install the missing plugin.
so i tried installing the RPM file from the adobe website, and get this error ..
error: Failed dependencies:
/bin/sh is needed by adobe-release-i386-1.0-1.noarch
so i tried downloading and unpacking the tar.gz version and running the flashplayer_install script, and when it asks for a valid installation path - e.g. /usr/lib/mozilla, it ignores whatever i enter.
if i enter /usr/lib/mozilla or /usr/lib/firefox it just keeps asking me for a valid installation path.
so i'm stuck !
i really have no clue other than maybe to un-install the flash stuff through synaptic and try it that way
as it seems beta 048 is out, would it be an easier solution to just re-format and do a clean install of that instead?
