How do I get Lightspark browser plugin to showup in Firefox?

Postby OS Stuntman on Wed Nov 21, 2012 10:38 am

Hello,
I installed the Lightspark 0.7.0: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sparkers/ppa, sudo apt-get update, sudo apt-get install lightspark browser-plugin-lightspark, and I rebooted for good measure, but Lightspark isn't populating Firefox extensions. I've checked a few sites and they've all had the same install instructions. Have I missed something?

Have you consulted the steps you need to do to activate it, as shown here: http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/lights ... leshooting. Lightspark isn't an extension, but a plugin. Make sure you are looking in the right tab on the Add-ons dialog (it shows extensions by default, so go to plugins).

Thanks for the reply,

I did check the troubleshooter, the package is installed and lightspark does work, but there isn't an entry in the plugins listing.
