Hello Olivier,

I have not previously had much success with the linuxpluginwrapper approach
(at least last time I tried there was a library patch needed - maybe that is
not the case anymore).

Have you tried the nspluginwrapper port instead?  It seems to work very well
with the linux-flashplugin7 at least.

Subject: linux-flashplugin9 with Mozilla Firefox


I'm running FreeBSD 6.2 with Mozilla Firefox |,1 and i tried to 
install linux-flashplugin9.

First step, i installed |linuxpluginwrapper :
|cd /usr/ports/www/linuxpluginwrapper && make install clean|

Step two, linux flash plugin:
|cd /usr/ports/www/linux-flashplugin9 && make install clean

Step tree, i made 2 symbolic links :
|cd /usr/local/lib/browser_plugins/
ln -s /usr/local/lib/npapi/linux-flashplugin/flashplayer.xpt
|ln -s /usr/local/lib/npapi/linux-flashplugin/|

and  i copied the libmap.conf file in /etc directory :
cp /usr/local/share/examples/linuxpluginwrapper/libmap.conf-FreeBSD6 

When i open my browser, i have nothing with about:plugins. I think doesnt exist no ?

Can you help me please ? Thank you :)
