Update problems 26-9

Postby netguz » Sat Sep 27, 2008 1:38 pm

Hello ev'ryone.

First of all, a huge thanks for all your hard work. Mint is great.

I've just had my first difficulty. Without really looking to see what they were I installed y'days updates - I did see that there was a F'Fox update.

After doing that F'Fox wouldn't launch. I went into Synaptic, which said it was installed (3.0.3 I think), so I uninstalled/reinstalled and it worked. Except for Flash.

I uninstalled/reinstalled Flash and it now works!


XFCE version on a Dell 4550.

Regarding the flash part, once you removed the firefox, the plugin directory with flash plugin was removed. Once you installed firefox again, the plugin directory was created but without flash plugin. I beleive a manual copy of the flash plugin to FFox plugin directory would have solved the issue. But the uninstall & re install of the flash plugin did the same thing.
