    Question Flash Click Problem using Opera on Lubuntu (LXDE)

    This is a strange problem to say the least, but... After installing Opera 12 on my Lubuntu setup I noticed that certain flash programs wont let me click buttons, like this:

    http://www.speedtest.bbmax.co.uk/ <-- Try clicking Begin Test

    but... on other desktop managers like Xubuntu's XFCE or Ubuntu's Unity (or Gnome) it works perfectly fine... So does anyone have any ideas why this only happens on LXDE ?

    Couple of questions: Do other browsers react the same? Are you having other problems with Opera? Since Opera is not in the repositories, there may be some glitch. Have you checked Launchpad for bug reports?

    I've tested many browsers including Chromium, Firefox, Midori and even Opera 11.64 and they all work fine, it's just Opera 12 (and the beta/rc's) that had this problem... I have also mentioned it as a bug to Opera themselves...

    Hi,

    Then it must be something to do with Opera itself. I never use it, sorry, I always use Firefox and Chromium.

    I assume you have already installed: lubuntu-restricted-extras

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install lubuntu-restricted-extras

    Question Re: Flash Click Problem using Opera on Lubuntu (LXDE)

    Yes I have the restricted extras installed for flash and java etc. It does indeed seem to be a problem with Opera 12 itself although I would love to find out WHY this only happens with LXDE and not any other desktop manager...

    Same problem here. If you keep clicking, after a while the button will get the click. This is a problem with just only a few Flash (YouTube works fine).

    Usually, if I had to click a button that isn't working, I use the keyboard. Click inside the Flash app, navigate the buttons with tab and click them with space.

    I found a partial solution: keeping pressed shift while clicking.
