I've installed the latest version of Flash (downloaded the tarball straight from Adobe), but it's refusing to play embedded videos, including youtube. It's not a browser-specific problem - I've tried Iceweasel, Epiphany, and Opera. How can I make my browsers work properly again?


Are you running 32bit or 64bit? Also, how did you install the flashplayer? Where did you put the *.so file?

So i just started using ubuntu to try it out any all my videos dont seem to be working. My miro video downloader and player keeps crashing. All my stuble upon videos crash and play no sound. what do i do?


I'm not exactly sure what codecs those videos require, but maybe you can check out the medibuntu website. They provide repositories for A/V codecs that should help you along your way.

You just need to install the flashplugin. Usually with firefox, when you visit a page that requires flash and you don't have it installed, it will prompt you with a button to press to install it. Otherwise, you can go to your applications menu and to the Add Programs, and do a search for 'flash' and install it that way.

After paying for a Cedega membership for over 2 years, I would suggest not using it. It has been having poor progress and the developers are practically invisible.

I have since moved to Crossover Games (www.codeweavers.com) which has better performance, and the developers work very closely with the community and with the Wine project. If you don't believe me, check out the compatibility forums on their website, their developers are constantly posting messages and helping users.

You can download the trial for 7 days, or purchase a copy of the software. The purchased software also gives you a free upgrades for a year.

Moved to Technical support

I've gotten this message a few times with my external USB drive. You pretty much have to do what the message says. The safest thing to do is to hook the drive up to a Windows machine and run a chkdisk on it because it wasn't cleanly unmounted. The easiest thing to do is force the mount using the command in the message:

First, create a mount point in /media (preferably one without spaces in it because i think this will cause problems

QUOTE
mkdir /media/foobar
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/hdb1 /media/foobar -o force



But yeah, if this drive has important documentation on it, i would hook it up to a Windows machine, run chkdsk on it, and also change the name to something without spaces in it because "Local Disk 2" may cause problems.

Last post almost 3 years ago. I'm thinking it may be time to close the forum and merge all the topics into another forum. Seems like a waste of space on the forum list page.

I kind of like the Ubuntu idea of not setting a root password. If you require an interactive shell as root (so you don't have to keep typing sudo during a session), you can log in as your regular use, and type

QUOTE
sudo -i


This will open up a root shell that you will be able to execute commands as root without the need of 'sudo' until you log out.

I know its more of a mainstream distro, but for the last few years, I've been keeping my eye on openSuse. They have been putting out some great releases. They only issues I come across is with their package manager. If only they'd switch from rpm to deb, it would be the distro out t here, because its well establish and polished.

I have an iAudio X5 as well (which is THE best mp3 player out there btw), and i've researched a lot and can't seem to find any information anywhere about slapping linux on there. I guess its not popular enough to attract the talented people out there.

Why are you re-inventing the wheel? There are perfectly good package management systems out there, most noteably apt. Is there something that other systems are missing or lacking? I don't understand.

In ubuntu (and most likely debian) there is a software package called simply 'webcam'. It has the ability to take snapshots at a pre-defined interval and upload them to an ftp server (or store it locally).

Also, you may want to check out http://www.ubuntustudio.org . It's a distribution of Ubuntu that includes a lot for multimedia creation and usage.

Out of curiosty, what was your experience like with Saboyan? I was tempted in trying it until I went to their website and saw it plastered with ads, really turned me off from it.

Another Gentoo-based distribution out there is VLOS (Vida Linux). I heard good things about it a few years ago, not sure if they're still relavent or not, but you can check it out at http://www.vidalinux.com

Hey matt, i was just doing some more poking around....

Have you checked this out?

And this thread on the Ubuntu forums might be helpful.

Other then that, I have no idea. It's been a while since i've messed with nforce in linux.

I am trying to install flash player for Firefox. It won't install automatically. So, I am following the directions to install manually but it won't let me copy the files to the plugins folder of Firefox.


Well, you have a couple of options. If you're the only person using your system, you can just copy them to your personal plugins folder:

mkdir -p ~/.mozilla/plugins (just to be sure you have that directory)
cp libflashplayer.so ~/.mozilla/plugins

Then restart Firefox

Otherwise, to install system wide:

su -
(enter root password)
cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
or
cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/firefox/plugins

Restart firefox and everything should be good. If you're still getting errors with writing and the output of the command "whoami" is root, then please post us the output to the following command:

ls -l /usr/lib/mozilla/
or
ls -l /usr/lib/firefox

Thanks.

Do you mean having the monitor-less computer sitting in a closet somewhere run an X-server so that a "client" can log in remotely graphically and run all X-based programs from the server?

It's pretty simple to set up if that's what you're going for. There are a couple of config files that you need to edit, and that's about it.

If that's what you're looking to do, let me know smile.gif

I would guess that we still use UDP dispite it's reliability because it has a hell of a lot less overhead due to lack of error checking, etc. The benefit of this would be that some data transmissions over a network, do not require 100% accuracy of the packets such as streaming music/video or even gaming. The less overhead allows for faster transmission, where one computer basically just pushes the packets out the door as fast as possible without worrying about wether it reaches its target or not. With gaming and streaming audio/video, you can drop a few packets here and there and not notice anything. however, with things like email, webpages, or a download of a file, a dropped packet means that the transmission would most likely have to start all over again because it would not be able to re-assemble on the other end.

That's as far as i understand it smile.gif

To set your hostname, just type:

hostname hostnameyouwant

As for the /dev/fd0 problem, I've never seen that before. Do you have fd0 listed in your /dev directory?
