I've gone to several websites that use Flash in puppy, but when I try to use the FireFox install plugin wizard, the wizard just sits there forever waiting to download the plugin. How can I fix this?

I don't have FF installed, but this might work:

Search the plugin-folder from firefox.
Might be /usr/lib/firefox/plugins
If it is different, alter the following 2 commands.

Then type in a console these 2 lines:
Code:

ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/libflashplayer.so

ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/flashplayer.xpt /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/flashplayer.xpt


Maybe afterthat, you must activate it in the plugin-options.

I didn't find a flash plugin for Mozilla to link to in Puppy. I tried downloading the Flash installer from Macromedia, but it can't install because Puppy's glibc is too old. I'm not sure what to do.

Does anyone else use Flash? The puppy tutorial videos are in flash.
