    can't install flash on konqueror

    I installed flash 9 on firefox via SYNAPTIC
    It works on firefox (but youtube won't fullscreen)
    Is there a special procedure to install
    firefox on Konqueror or should it have
    automatically been done already?

    My goal is to be able to watch the vids I post on youtube
    fullscreen (big picture) and that's why I want to try
    it with Konqueror as it just does'nt seem to
    work with Firefox (I have the latest version).

    Flash has a new version 10 available and i've tried every
    trick I could to install it with no success
    if anyone can see what i'm doing wrong please
    tell me. I've enclosed .png of terminal readout.

    I thank you for your time.

    Re: can't install flash on konqueror

    I recently found a .deb for Flash 10 Release Candidate that's worked very well for me in Hardy w/Firefox 3 and the newest Opera (I did however receive a message from someone saying that it wouldn't work in Feisty), but I've never used Konqueror.

    http://launchpadlibrarian.net/167664...Eppa2_i386.deb

    Of course you'd first want to remove any (or all) previous versions of Flash:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge flashplugin-nonfree
    Code:
    cd ~/.mozilla
    rm flashplayer.xpt libflashplayer.so
    I found that .deb here:

    http://tombuntu.com/index.php/2008/0...-rc-in-ubuntu/

    I should also note that I'd previously followed the steps in this tutorial (but I'm not sure that's still necessary, or perhaps never was in Kubuntu):
