From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.0.0-10; Linux)
Description of problem:
The plugin is not started, even if everything seems well configured. I tried to upgrade the plugin to the latest release (188.8.131.52) from the macromedia site but that did not solved the problem.
The plugin works great under mozilla and netscape, tough.
That's a blocking issue for me (I develop flash applications), and prefer konqueror as a browser for a number of reasons.
The plugin worked fine with the previous release, under Red Hat 7.2
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a web page with a flash applet, as www.macromedia.com
2. the plugin is not started
I get offer a "me too". I found further that if I directly reference the flash
file in the Address URL box, it loads and runs. I just can't get it to work
when embedded into a webpage.
I found an example of a flash site not loading (don't laugh):
This USED to work with kde-2.2.2.
I'm also getting similar (but not as drastic) failures on some sites with
embedded java applets. Sometimes they load, sometimes they don't.
is a good example, there's supposed to be 2 applets, but I can only get at
most one of them to work (by reloading). I've tried both jre1.3.1_02 and
jre1.4.0 from sun (rpm).
Just snagged kde 3.0.1-1 packages from rawhide. java applets now seem to load
reliably. I also found an example of a flash site that actually works:
http://www.planettribes.com/allyourbase/video.shtml (I think this uses
The problem is khtml doesn't correctly interpret the <object> tag and thus,
flash animations which are not inside a <object></object> pair work ok. Like
the one above.
Accessing any of those pages with 3.0.2-1 gives me a warning saying no plugin
for swf found and a large reserved area, so I think the <object> parsing stuff
I can verify that with kdelibs-3.0.2-0.cvs20020625 and
kdebase-3.0.2-0.cvs20020627 (from rawhide), and the flash5 plugin from
macromedia, that the flash portions of webpages now actually load and work.
So when do we get to see 3.0.2-1? (-:
