Description Steve Brown 2003-01-15 20:40:49 UTC
Description of problem:

I wanted to set up the Flash Player plugin (that I'm using for Mozilla) for
Konqueror.  According to Konquer's help, this is done by selecting, from the K
menu, 'Preferences | Web Browsing | Netscape Plugins'.  Then you click a button
to scan for available plugins.  I did this prior to running up2date and it
seemed to work fine.  After running up2date, I get an error message: 'There was
an error loading the module.  Possible Reasons: 1. An error occurred during your
last KDE upgrade leaving an orphaned control module. 2. You have old third party
oodules lying around.'

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  In KDE, select 'Preferences | Web Browsing | Netscape Plugins' from the K menu.
2.  Click the button to scan for available plugins.
3.  Close the form.
4.  Run up2date -- an update of KDE must be included.
5.  In KDE, select 'Preferences | Web Browsing | Netscape Plugins' from the K menu.
Actual results:

  Error message.

Expected results:

  Form to scan for plugins.

reassigning to konqueror, though it might be a generic KDE issue. But
the konqueror folks know better than I do.

This sounds like a bug in the kde packages, not a up2date bug.

it's fixed in kde 3.1, which you can find it in rawhide.
