Problems with Adobe Flash player on the XO.

2009-01-01 Thread Stanley Sokolow
Hi, I'm having problems: Adobe FlashPlayer doesn't detect the XO's built-in webcam so it can't transmit video out to the Internet on Flash-enabled web sites, and the Adobe Flash player on the XO freezes the popup right-click control panel. Gnash didn't work at all with a Flash-based web

My thoughts about Firefox. Even if it uses more resources than Midori, it's worth the extra bytes. I am running Xubuntu (Teapot edition) from a 2GB SD card in my XO, and I have Firefox on it. I installed the ePubReader plug-in for Firefox. This runs nicely and allows you to view eBooks in

So, I guess you don't install any software that you download and run, like Firefox or OpenOffice.org or Google Earth? An AIR program doesn't just sneak itself onto your system -- the user decides to buy it, or trust the source of it, downloads it, and runs the installer. The point about AIR is
