Any time I need fast help I google it.

KeyWord: konqueror flash


If I can't find my answer at google then I move to a forum.

So I google for you your answer is in the link above.

Installing Flash

Since the Flash Player from Macromedia is only distributed in binary form and only for Linux, we need to install a wrapper to make it accessible for Konqueror. Install nspluginwrapper and the actual Flash Player linux-flashplugin7 from ports:

cd /usr/ports/www/nspluginwrapper && make install clean
cd /usr/ports/www/linux-flashplugin7 && make install clean

Setting up nspluginwrapper


nspluginwrapper -v -a -i

This command lets nspluginwrapper search for installed plugins and generate wrapper libraries in ~/.mozilla/plugins. These wrapper libraries will also be visible to and usable by native FreeBSD builds of Firefox, Mozilla and Seamonkey.
Setting up Konqueror

In order for Konqueror to find the plugin for the Flash Player, you might have to add an additional search-path to the plugins-section of Konqueror's settings.

* Open Konqueror.
* In the Konqueror menubar, traverse the submenus until you arrive at:
Settings -> Configure Konqueror -> Plugins
* Proceed to the Scan tab.
* Select the Scan for New Plugins button.

Plugins are now searched and if everything worked well, you should see an entry for the Flash-plugin when you switch to the Plugins tab.
Successful detection of the flash-plugin

The installation is finished and you can check if everything works at the Adobe Flash Website.
