Linux Browser Plugins


Recommended Posts

havnblast

Ok - running RedHat 8.0 here and with linux it has more than one browser. I mainly use Mozilla 1.3 and Phoenix but the question is I install Java and Flash pluggins that are working in Mozilla, but how do I get the other browsers to recognize those pluggins? Phoenix and Konquerer don't see the pluggins - any idea?

Havnblast:I only know about konqueror but I guess it is about the same for Phoenix:First: Mozilla plugins (flashplayer and java) are located in /usr/lib/mozilla-1.3/pluginsIn konqueror: go to Settings > Configure Konqueror > (in left kolom ) Netscape plugingsThere you can scan for plugins ( the easy way) , or direct to /usr/lib/mozilla-1.3/plugins.In mine there are the following entries:$HOME/.netscape/plugins/usr/local/netscape/plugins/opt/netscape/plugins/opt/netscape/communicator/plugins/usr/lib/netscape/plugins/usr/lib/netscape/plugins-libc5/usr/lib/netscape/plugins-libc6/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins$MOZILLA_HOME/pluginsHope this helps you,Bruno

For flash you can copy flashplayer.xpt and libflashplayer.so from /usr/lib/mozilla-1.3/plugins to the phoenix/plugins directory where you installed Phoenix. Mine is in my home directory ~/phoenix/plugins.For java I linked /usr/java/j2re1.4.0/plugin/i386/ns610/libjavaplugin_oji140.so to ~/phoenix/plugins (I used konqueror to drag and drop then selected link). You Java location may be different.Do you know about the MozillaZine Forums?
