I wish someone could explain to me why I am no longer able to install 
flashplugin ... none of the methods work for me on amy version... I have 
literally tried them all..
the latest was linux-f10 - I cleaned out all the linux stuff, umounted 
the proc sytem cleaned out everything I could find related (?) to linux 
and reinstalled. No go, no way, José!
I did catch some kind of warning that flashed by on the screen about 
Glib - seems to be gstreamer related...??? and the only thing I can find 
is the error message that flashplugin.so (or whatever the file is) could 
not be loaded because shared file "libfreetype.so.6" could not be 
found... and the only libfreetype.so.6 file on the s;ystem is 
If the system is smart enought to not find the right file, it ought to 
be smart enought to know where this file should be and to what it is 
related... duh !
