  1. Opera + Flash + openSUSE 10.3 x86-64

    Does Flash work for anyone inside Opera in openSUSE 10.3 x86-64? It
    doesn't for me. I find myself using Opera more often lately than
    Firefox, and wonder how to get it to work.

    Not here.

    Write a bug report. Maybe the developpers don't know about the problem.

    The last flash upgrade (actually... might of been a couple ago)
    is incompatible with the version of Opera that comes with 10.3. Go
    to Opera's site and download the BETA version for 9.50

    http://www.opera.com/download/?ver=9.50b

    Install that one and flash should work again.

    There really is no true 64 bit version of Opera for Linux. The 64 bit as
    distributed by openSuSE is still a 32 bit browser underneath it all. Flash
    quit working because Adobe borked it to require GTK. If you don't believe
    me, download from opera and I guarantee the x86 rpm will still work the
    same meaning no flash. I personally wish one of two things, either web
    designers quit using flash or we get a decent implementation of it whether
    an open source answer or adobe fixing their mess they made last year.

    Actually this install seems to be broken for opensuse. I am not very
    good at this but I will try and report it to Opera.

    I actually got it working here on 10.3x64 and kde. Should be same for other
    wm's, except the start-menu part.

    - Get opera-9.50b-20071024.6-shared-qt.i386-en.rpm from link above and
    install with rpm:
    :~> rpm -U opera-9.50b-20071024.6-shared-qt.i386-en.rpm

    - After install the default start icon did not work, but running it from
    konsole (type '/usr/bin/opera') worked. If so delete the non working
    start-menu entry and add a new one to just run '/usr/bin/opera'. Add icon
    of your choice.

    - The flashplugin I'm using is
    :~> zypper se flash
    i | openSUSE-10.3-Updates | package | flash-player | 9.0.115.0-0.1 | i586
    It's located in /usr/lib/browser-plugins

    - Check browser-plugins path in opera
    (preferences->advanced->content->plugin-options)
    Mine is /usr/lib/opera/plugins:/usr/lib/browser-plugins

    - Browse flash content!

    - If it doesn't work maybe you have various versions of flashplugin in
    operas path, find out which one opera is using with following commands:
    :~> pgrep opera -l
    11191 opera
    11238 operapluginwrap --> look into this
    11239 operapluginclea
    :~> lsof -p 11238 | grep flash
    operaplug 11238 ... /usr/lib/browser-plugins/libflashplayer.so
