[ 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) [/usr/local/lib/linux-flashplugin6/libflashplayer.so] 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 [/usr/local/lib/linux-flashplugin6/libflashplayer.so] 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 #[/usr/X11R6/lib/browser_plugins/nppdf.so] #libc.so.6 pluginwrapper/acrobat.so # Acrobat with Mozilla/Firebird/Galeon/Epiphany #[/usr/local/Acrobat5/Browsers/intellinux/nppdf.so] #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. > After linux-flashplugin6 I found the file libflashplayer.so and I added as > a path in konqueror browser (Configure -> Plugins) and I click on scan, but > it doesnot scan and says "nspluginscan excutable cannot be found - netscape > plugin cant be scaned" 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. > Path I added is "/usr/local/lib/linux-flashplugin6/libflashplayer.so" I have just /usr/local/lib/linux-flashplugin6/ > Shall I install netscape?

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. > And i thanks your previous help 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.
