The latest upgrade to Firefox from the repo has killed access to flash videos. The mozilla install still plays them. Apparently the flash link is in the wrong place for the repo version to pick up. EDIT: Curious event. I closed the repo version and ran the Mozilla version to verify flash was workin...

That's the nice thing about Icedove - the hidden folder (on my set-up anyway) is '.mozilla-thunderbird'. The only thing changed is the name and the branding. Thanks Brooko! That's weird but it worked. The Thunderbird uses .thunderbird now. Anyway, Thanks! When newer versions of Thunderbird started ...

kmathern, the symlink you suggested (second) didn't work because it already exists: # ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/libflashplayer.so ln: creating symbolic link `/usr/lib/firefox/plugins/libflashplayer.so' to `/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so': ...

I can't find that file either. $find . -name flashplayer.xpt $find .mozilla -name flashplayer.xpt both come up empty. Dunno what that means. I just tried installing the flashplayer-mozilla from debian-multimedia on a fresh Mepis 7 install (actually a fromiso/aufs booted session) and indeed firefox ...

Opera 9.60 Mepis 7.0 Firefox 2.0.0.11 I'm going to look for the APT package name that has the Flashplayer compatible with this version of Firefox. Make sure the debian-multimedia repo is enabled and then install flashplayer-mozilla. The flashplayer-mozilla package replaces the flashplugin-nonfree t...

Which version of Mepis are you using?
I have flash 10 working with Mepis 8 but I haven't been able to get it to work with Mepis 7 and the same has been reported with Mepis 6.5.

My first guess would be that (hda0,4) which I highlighted, I think it should be (hd0,4)

edit:you should probably also change root to rootnoverify

I installed the updates, and then thought the better of it and decided to check here. Sure enough, there are others who are nervous. All I can say is that it's too late for me since I installed them already, and everything seems to be working fine. Don't know if my passwords just got sent to Mr. I....
