I was asked off-list how I set up the plugin search path to get this stuff working. Copying my reply here in case it's useful to anyone else: First you'll need to have the www/linux-flashplugin7 and print/acroread7 ports installed - these obviously require the Linux emulation layer to be installed (emulators/linux_base-fc4 port) and enabled (linux_enable="YES" in /etc/rc.conf). Then all I did in Opera was: - Open the Tools -> Preferences dialog - Switch to the "Advanced" tab then pick "Content" from the left-hand menu - Make sure plugins are enabled - Open the "Plug-in options" dialog - Click on "Change path..." and add these two paths to the list: /usr/local/lib/npapi/linux-flashplugin /local/X11R6/Adobe/Acrobat7.0/ENU/Browser/intellinux Those are the locations of the libflashplayer.so and nppdf.so plugin libraries - I expect the paths will be the same on your machine - Click "OK" to get out of the plug-in path dialog - Click "Find new" on the Plugins dialog - you should get the "Adobe Reader 7.0" and "Shockwave Flash" plugins listed now. - OK out of all the dialogs and try browsing some sites with Flash or PDF documents on them... I did have both Flash and Acrobat already working with the Linux Firefox port and partly working with native Firefox, so I wouldn't guarantee that some of the stuff I have in /etc/libmap.conf (essentially whatever the linuxpluginwrapper port told me to use) isn't important. I also have a Linux /proc filesystem mounted on /compat/linux/proc - that may or may not be important for these plugins to run, but it shouldn't hurt to have it mounted.
