After I install nspluginwrapper and try to install mozilla flashplayer-plugin with the following command as described in the nspluginwrapper manual:

 nspluginwrapper -v -i /usr/local/lib/npapi/linux-flashplugin/

I get persistently the following error:

'ELF binary type "0" not known.
/usr/local/lib/nspluginwrapper/i386/linux/npviewer.bin: 1: Syntax error: "(" unexpected
nspluginwrapper: no appropriate viewer found for /usr/local/lib/npapi/linux-flashplugin/' regardless of the version of the plugin I try to use.

So I am unable to use the flashplayer-plugin at all.
Please if you could do something about it.
