I just upgraded to Mozilla-1.3_1,2 and attempted to install flash
plugins for the first time. The following instructions were taken from
section 15.2.2. Mozilla, Java, and Shockwave Flash of the FreeBSD
Handbook. I installed flashplugin-mozilla-0.4.10_2 but had some
difficulty following the instructions. I was unable to locate
libflashplayer.so, and ShockwaveFlash.class. Are the instructions
current? If not, please advise. Thank you.
"...install the www/flashpluginwrapper
port. This port requires emulators/linux_base
which is a large port. True that other *flash* plugins exist, however
they have not worked for me.
Now copy the *flash* plug-in files with:
# *cp /usr/local/lib/flash/libflashplayer.so \
# *cp /usr/local/lib/flash/ShockwaveFlash.class \
Now add the following lines to the top of (but right
under #!/bin/sh) *Mozilla* startup script: /usr/X11R6/bin/mozilla.
This will enable the *flash* plug-in."
