Subject description: I got seamonkey working and playing flash
 

The wonderful folks at Seamonkey made a new version
The nice folks at adobe started making 32 flash again

The pet puts the bulk of the stuff in a directory in /usr/lib

The menu entry is created

A script in /usr/local/bin runs it

There are icons

Enjoy

I see it includes the seamonkey and the flash player .
I already have the newer seamonkey and the problem I had was that it trys to drop your add ons like adblock and downloader. It says there is no suitable version when you go to get them in the new version . In fact if you keep the old add on plugins they run quite properly so Mozilla is trying to stop you using certain addons it seems.

So do you have a link to the flashplayer download on its own please , or can I get it from the pet provided. I see the " .so" file for it in there but did not find the version you used .

EDIT .. I went to adobe and downloaded the tar.zip file . Placed a copy of it in the root directory and extracted it there (else you have to start moving files around). Don't know if it works properly yet however all the adds seem to like it!! Don't know what good it does me?.

Do you work for them?

There is another way to block ads. You can have a list of known ad servers to be blocked in your /etc/hosts, very simple, and it works! Take a look at this site: http://winhelp2002.mvps.org. It is a Windoze site, but the problem and the solution is the same for Linux.
The list contains almost 15000 known sites, and to use the list, download it:
Code:
wget http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.txt

Check the contets validity by using the command md5sum + filename, and compare the result with the given MD5
MD5: B15466F5708F97411F5F52E95A0700F2
Next append it to existing /etc/hosts, after making a backup copy of /etc/hosts for safety.
Code:
cat hosts.txt >> /etc/hosts

Check you hosts file before and after. The first line in /etc/hosts MUST contain the expression 127.0.0.1 localhost (and maybe other things, doesn't matter)
The downloaded hosts.txt file also contain the same line in the beginning, that may be edited away, no reason for repeating it.
Then restart you browser witout ads... Very Happy

BTW, you may add new lines to the list if some ads pop up anyway...
And now I finally found musher0's old post on the same subject: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=865498#865498
Oh well, you cannot repeat a good thing often enough... Very Happy
