I have downloaded and installed two different plugins. The second one was a "Swfdec player for Adobe/Macromedia Flash." In both cases, I noticed a message during the downloads that the files were being "cached." When I tried to play the sound from a video clip on a site, none came out!! What am I supposed to do to after downloading any plugin that says it is already installed?? :(:( Where do I find the downloaded/"installed" plugins and how do I actually enable them to work? Yes, once again my ignorance and newness to Linux and Ubuntu 8.04.1 is showing! However, I really don't understand what is going on here and need some help. How can a download that has been completed and supposedly "installed" not work? :confused::mad:
What additional step or steps am I missing and how do I accomplish it or them? Thanks very much, fellow forum members.
