[ should I have CC'd this to ports@ instead?]

You have to create it in /etc/libmap.conf. Safest bet is to copy the 
example shown in the port's message. Maybe you need to change 
the path for flash.

Mine looks like this (ignore the first two lines, it's temporary and 
with 5.1 it doesn't concern you -- you might need it if updating 
from 5.1 to "5.3" later though when rebuilding ports):

libc_r.so.5                     libpthread.so.1 # Everything that uses 'libc_r'
libc_r.so                       libpthread.so   # now uses 'libpthread'

# Flash6 with Opera is not avilable.

# Flash6 with Konqueror (temporary setting)
libpthread.so.0                         liblthread.so.3
libdl.so.2                                      pluginwrapper/flash6.so
libz.so.1                                       libz.so.2
libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3                liblstdc++.so.4
libm.so.6                                       libm.so.2
libc.so.6                                       pluginwrapper/flash6.so

# Flash6 with Mozilla/Firebird/Galeon/Epiphany
libpthread.so.0                         liblthread.so.3
libdl.so.2                                      pluginwrapper/flash6.so
libz.so.1                                       libz.so.2
libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3                liblstdc++.so.4
libm.so.6                                       libm.so.2
libc.so.6                                       pluginwrapper/flash6.so

# Acrobat with Opera
#libc.so.6                                      pluginwrapper/acrobat.so

# Acrobat with Mozilla/Firebird/Galeon/Epiphany
#libc.so.6                                      pluginwrapper/acrobat.so

Acrobat always freezes -- this might be solved by now -- but I always 
use the KDE plugin for PDFs and it works fine and looks better.

Mmmm. Could you try running 'whereis nspluginscan'. If it shows nothing than 
apparently the package you used doesn't include motif/nsplugin support in 
kdebase. That would be quite bad! Standard port build does include it as far 
as I know, or it may depend on whether you already have motif/lesstiff 
libraries. If this is indeed the problem, you can build kdebase from ports 
and you should also report to [EMAIL PROTECTED] that plugin support is missing 
in the package. It should be in there. I remember having an email exange with 
a gentleman who had the same problem, but he was building from ports. Perhaps 
a motif dependency on kdebase is needed to ensure nsplugin support. 

As much as we all hate them ;-), plugins are important if only for flash which 
only works as a plugin. Java with konqueror works through a KPart and not 
through the nsplugin method.

For what it's worth I have:

% pkg_info | grep motif
open-motif-2.2.2_2  Motif X11 Toolkit (industry standard GUI (IEEE 1295))

I don't know if I got that when building KDE or if I had it before. It is 
needed for rendering Linux plugins that use motif.

I have just /usr/local/lib/linux-flashplugin6/

OK, taking into account the above, the nsplugins appear as a choice for 
"embedded" playing, that is the second tab in the right side pane in Konq's 
config dialog. So you click the mime type and then "embedding" on the right. 
In that tab, if you click "add" you get a list of KParts and some other 
embedded things perhaps, one of them is "Netscape plugin viewer (nsplugin)".

If you don't see this at all, that might be another hint that your package may 
not have nsplugin support at all.

You're welcome. Would be better if it would work though :)

I'm currently rebuilding all of KDE to update to 3.2.1 and get over the libc_r 
-> libpthread name change on -CURRENT as of a week ago, I can't provide you 
with working packages for 5.1. 

I'd like to add that KDE 3.2+ is /very/ fast on -CURRENT or basically 5.2+ULE 
(self built 2001 single processor desktop box, 1.5GHz Intel IV, Asus P4B 
mobo, 512 MB RAM, Via chipset, Maxtor ATA100 drive). It never has been this 
snappy with 3.1 or earlier.
