Flash plugin is in Mozilla's plugin directory: /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so while Flock's plugin directory is either /usr/lib/flock/plugins/ or /home/username/.flock/plugins/. That means you have to create a symbolic link that points to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so in one --or both-- of the Flock's plugin directory. To do that, open up a Terminal and enter this command:

Code: Select all

cd /usr/lib/flock/plugins; sudo ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so libflashplayer.so; sudo chmod 755 libflashplayer.so

If that does not work, try this one:

Code: Select all

cd ~/.flock/plugins/; ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so libflashplayer.so
