Description Thomas Janssen 2009-04-14 02:12:38 EDT
Description of problem:
Konqueror not able to use 32bit plugins like flash-plugin (32bit).
If you run about:plugins in konqueror it's almost empty, not showing for example the flash-plugin.

It needs the following path added:

If you run then nspluginscan (needed after you added the two path) The about:plugins is filled as expected.

It still is not working perfect. Got no youtube videos (just a grey box), but thats a different thing i have to fiddle with.

Looks like we had this set in *2* places, via a patch to kdebase and in kde-settings, and the latter takes precedence (and was wrong).  kde-setting is fixed in upstream svn(fedorahosted) now.

For posterity, we should probably only set this in one place, not 2.
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2009-04-17 14:31:48 EDT
Interestingly, the code defaults seem to take preference over those in kde-settings if one presses the "defaults" button in the konq plugin/prefs page.

With that in mind, not sure if it's worth modifying kde-settings for < F-11.  anyone else able to confirm/deny, or offer opinion?
