To use nspluginwrapper you would have to run this after the install.

If you are using the linux-seamonkey then you don't need any wrapper, you only need a wrapper if you use any kind of native browser. Unfortunately version 9 doesn't work right now. Personally I prefer to use the native firefox or seamonkey and use the wrapper because I can get mplayer to embed in the browser when it encouters real audio and video (from realplayer) and audio and video from "windows media player".
