Hi Guys

If you find your flash is not working properly with the Opera browser, then download the following file from this site:

Code:
http://rapidshare.com/files/349793749/libflashplayer.so.html


and place it in the following directory:

Code:
/home/youruser/.opera/plugins/libflashplayer.so (make a plugins directory if you need to)


Hope this helps someone.

Cheers
Shelton.

What's the difference to the default libflashplayer.so which comes with flash AND even more important why should I trust you and use this(no offense)?

You don't have to trust me and I don't care if you do or don't :)

I used Opera for many years and had to use to also fire up Firefox to view the charts on http://www.google.com/finance?q=INDEXDJX:.DJI , then recently I found this flash file and installed it and now I can view the charts on the finance site.

Just thought there may be persons out there with a similar issue who may find this useful.

Cheers
Shelton.

Hi there

I am using v10.10 - maybe I missed something down the track cause I could never see that finance site -

Cheers
Shelton.
