Hi,

If you have opera and netscape-flash and it doesn't work.

Do opera -debugplugin. Now when you hit a flash page it will complain about libXm.so.2 and you will realize that you have libXm.so.3.

cd /usr/local/lib
ln -sf /usr/X11R6/lib/libXm.so.3 libXm.so.2
ldconfig -v

run ldconfig -p and make sure you see:
libXm.so.2 -> /usr/local/lib/libXm.so.2

It should work now when you restart opera.

When I run ldconfig -p, this is all I get for libXm*:

Code:
libXm.so.3 (libc6) => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXm.so.3
libXm.so.3 (libc6) => /usr/local/lib/libXm.so.3
libXm.so (libc6) => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXm.so


No libXm.so.2 :(

Opera actually freezes for about 20 seconds when it encounters a flash page.

What should I do?

Thanks for any help.

Just make a link from libXm.so.3 to libXm.so.2 and run ldconfig, and everything should be good again.

P.S: Sorry for the late reply, but I just saw this post now as I was searching the forums as I was having the same problem myself. Hopefully you fixed it already and this post serves no purpose :lol:

Thanks. I should've done that in the first place. However, Opera started working all of a sudden. I emerged a bunch of stuff before restarting my machine and when I did, Opera started handling Flash properly.

Strange, huh?
