I've just being trying to get flash working on Kubuntu Intrepid 8.10, as 
someone was having problems getting the site below to play. It wouldn't work 
with Adobe's flash 10, and the site was still complaing of flash being 
missing. Someone suggested Gnash, so I installed that, and the Gnash-plugin, 
but still no go, and I got a popup about missing codecs from Firefox, mainly, 
gstreamer-ffmpeg, and gstreamer-extra, which is included in 
gstreamer-plugins-ugly. Installed those 2 packages, and now the site plays 
the flash stuff ok.

Just looked on my F9 install on the same machine. flash-plugin is installed 
(flash10), and libflashsupport is not installed. I see I also had Gnash 
installed. As installing gstreamer-ffmpeg, and gstreamer-plugins-ugly on the 
Kubuntu install had worked, I tried this lastnight on F9, but still no go.

Now I've just installed gnash-plugin, and gnash-klash (which is supposed to 
get flash working in Konqueror (havn't tried Konqueror yet)). About:plugins 
in Firefox now shows 2 entries for Flash, but better than that, the site 
below plays.


The site above is kiddie stuff, and someone on the Kubuntu list was trying to 
get it working. I've just passed 60 (Dec 18), but it's a bit of fun all the 

btw. I've just tried Konqueror with the site, and that too plays the flash 
content ok. Only need to try Opera now, and if that too plays the flash 
stuff, it's all systems go.
