Thanks. The tips you gave me is definitely waaay more than I bargained
Thing is, I found a page in the DesktopBSD wiki that talks about making
linux version of the flash plugin work with native Opera. It's here:
The relevant part of the guide is as follows:
"native Opera9 with Flash
Opera 9 supports now Linux Flashplugin, so you can just install from ports,
The ports are all there and they do install, but it doesn't work. I
simply installed the linux-opera and it's all fine now.
