RPM: Symbolic link to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
Last modified: 2009-02-11 11:39:04 EST
At least for me it never worked, that Firefox finds the installed plugins at /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins.
Instead there is no directory /usr/lib/firefox-3.0.6/plugins at all. After every update I have to do a
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins /usr/lib/firefox-3.0.6/plugins
Isn't is possible to include this single line (and the removal when the rpm is uninstalled) into the RPM scripts?
This is a really nice to have, especially for normal users...Thanks!
Well, we really should figure out why it's not reading /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins for you and fix that. Assigning to stransky, but can you provide him with some additional information? Please give us the results of these two commands:
rpm -q xulrunner firefox nspluginwrapper
rpm -V xulrunner firefox nspluginwrapper
Also, can you make sure firefox is not running and then provide the output of:
sh -x firefox
Hello, I am sorry to pretend of being wise...
nspluginswrapper was not installed (anymore) for some reason.
I installed it and Firefox finds its plugins. Sorry! And thanks for your help!
