Hi Bruno. I have got flash working on Konqueror. I would have posted earlier, 
but have been sorting other problems.

This is on FC2 with Flash-version-7.0.68.

These are the 2 entries I have in Konquerors plugins.

plugin  /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
plugin  /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/nphelix.so

Flash works ok on Konqueror, and the site I use to check it out is.
http://laracameron.com/main.html

The birds will fly around on the main page, choosing web/interactive, then 7 
apples gelato will play some flash stuff, including sound.

Nigel.
