    How to disable the "Press Esc to exit full screen mode" message?

    Is there a way to disable the "Press Esc to exit full screen mode" message when watching flash videos in Ubuntu?



    It just gets annoying after a while to see it over and over again. And it pops up right in the middle of the screen, thus blocking the most important area. Anyone who has watched short flash videos in fullscreen would understand.

    I tried to google the problem and only found solutions for windows, but can it also be disabled in Ubuntu? =)

    What distro/browser and which version of flash are you using?
    Im using firefox 11 with flash 11.1 r102 so it should work with older version.
    Are you sure you patched the right plugin? (i have 4 versions)
    try
    Code:
    about:plugins
    (type that as url)
    if you are lucky it will tell you the location of your plugin.

    Ubuntu 'Natty' 11.04
    FireFox 8.0
    Shockwave Flash 11.1 r102
    All from the software centre (with the exception of the OS itself, which was off an iso)

    No idea at all, I just ran the updater from wine and hoped for the best LOL

    How i did it:
    Run:
    Code:
    cp /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/libflashplayer.so ~/
    open Flash Fullscreen Patcher.exe with wine
    choose "Other"
    set filetypes to "All Files"
    select libflashplayer.so from your home folder
    You will get a confirmation that the file is successfully patched
    Close the patcher
    run
    Code:
    sudo cp ~/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/

    Brilliant! That did it, thanks. Will I have to repeat this every time there is a flash update, or will it stay now?
