Konqueror & Flash HowTo

Publicado: novembro 1, 2007 em FreeBSD

PrerequisitesYou need to be running either FreeBSD 6.1

For KDE versions older than KDE 3.4.0, you also you need to install the konqueror-nsplugins port


Note: Sound does not work with wrapped Flash 7. If you require sound, the only option at the time being is installing the linux-firefox port and using the plugin there.

Installing Flash

Since the Flash Player from Macromedia is only distributed in binary form and only for Linux, we need to install a wrapper to make it accessible for Konqueror. Install linuxpluginwrapper and the actual Flash Player linux-flashplugin7 from ports:

cd /usr/ports/www/linuxpluginwrapper && make install clean
cd /usr/ports/www/linux-flashplugin7 && make install clean

Next, edit your /etc/libmap.conf and add the following lines (if it does not exist, create it):

libpthread.so.0                 pluginwrapper/flash6.so
libdl.so.2                      pluginwrapper/flash6.so
libz.so.1                       libz.so
libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3        libstdc++.so
libm.so.6                       libm.so
libc.so.6                       pluginwrapper/flash6.so

Setting up Konqueror

In order for Konqueror to find the plugin for the Flash Player, you might have to add an additional search-path to the plugins-section of Konqueror’s settings.

  • Open Konqueror.
  • In the Konqueror menubar, traverse the submenus until you arrive at:
    Settings -> Configure Konqueror -> Plugins
  • Check the screenshot below. If you’re missing a path that’s shown in the screenshot, add it.
  • Proceed to the Scan tab.
  • Select the Scan for New Plugins button.
Configure Konqueror plugins

Plugins are now searched and if everything worked well, you should see an entry for the Flash-plugin when you switch to the Plugins tab.

Successful detection of the flash-plugin

The installation is finished.
