Hello Listmates,

I sent this e-mail earlier but it went unnoticed.

Has anyone else had problems with the adobe flashplayer
plugin for linux x86_64 ?

Mine is not working. :(

I totally agree.. multimedia in 11.0 / 64-bit is not FG.

Dear List,

Have anyone else noticed the following problem with
suse 11, 64-bit while watching flash videos from, say,
youtube (happens with other webpages too..)?

The flashplayer (mozilla/firefox plugin) just shows a blank
screen (i.e. the rectangle where the video should appear
is just white/pink, nothing happens). Then when I am trying
to access the flashplayer options, i.e. clicking with right
mouse button on the blank screen, nothing happens either..

This seems to happen quite randomly.. a video I could
see yesterday, I cannot access today.

My flashplayer version is 9.

If you're using KDE 4.0, then there ARE problems! I just finished today

Eh.. The flashplayer plugin for mozilla/firefox shouldn't have anything
to do with the kde version, I suppose. And It's strange no one has commented
of this problem before..

Flashplayer plugin for suse 11.0, 64-bit does not work!!
(am I missing something here.. isn't that "i586" meaning it is 32-bit?).

I don't care about flash animations (youtube is a waste of time), but my
60-years old mom's laptop with the latest suse 11.0 / kde4 is a mess.
- The mixture of kde3 programs with the kde4 system
(just an example: most programs pop-up kde3 kmail even you have

configured everything for kde4)
- the plugins (mplayer plugin, etc.) not able to handle .asx, etc.
multimedia formats. Right now even flash does not work!
- etc.

Poor woman, have to reinstall her m$-windows. :(
