I just did this, but I am unable to register the plugin in Opera. I am
using FreeBSD 4.8 and Opera 7.21.
I am not sure if this is a problem, but this is the output of pkg_info |
linux-opera-6.12.20030305 A blazingly fast, full-featured,
opera-6.12.20030305 A blazingly fast, full-featured, standards-compliant
opera-7.21.20031013 A blazingly fast, full-featured, standards-compliant
I have set the synlinks in the plugins directory, and since that didn't
work I also added /usr/local/lib/linux-flashplugin6/ to the plugin path,
to no avail. Anyone have any suggestions?
