Opera Flash and Mint 4 Xfce

Postby lancern on Sun Mar 30, 2008 11:39 am

I just can not get flash to work in opera no matter what I try..tried installing it in terminal and uninstalling it
and using the latest .deb from Opera's web page..Tried uninstalling and reinstalling the nonfree flash drivers..
even tried copying the flash plugin from firefox to Opera's plugin folder../usr/lib/opera/plugins..
the flash plugins are where they need to be..but still will not work..

I did try installing the windows version of Opera through wine and the flash plugin and it works great..
eats about 60mb of ram..but would rather not go that route if i can keep from it :P

would just like to use opera till firefox 3 comes out..tried firefox 3 beta 4 on windows the other day
and it so much faster now...

Make sure that you do not have the firefox flash plugin in the same forlder as the flash plugin of opera. I had once the same problem, removed the firefox plugin and it worked.

Opera has officially stated that Flash doesn't work with Opera (Linux version), it's an Opera flaw which will be fixed in version 9.50, but since Opera is only currently up to version 9.26 they have a 9.50 Beta available which works with Flash, but be warned it crashes a lot.

Another thing to consider is using Opera (Windows version) in Wine.
