I thought it was time again to have a look at Opera.
I found SHS's 11-1104
First I tried to transform the pet to tgz and unpack in a directory.
It didn't run.
Then I used the sfs and that did work.
I followed the instructions for flashplayer
On my laptop Thinkpad R40 this worked. (ati radeon 7500)

So now to my desktop Medion 8818 with nvidia 7650
Started with the sfs directly and applied the flashplayer instructions, but the flashplayer plugin isn't seen.

I then downloaded the latest opera 11-1176 tgz directly from the opera site and unpacked.
Also here opera is running but the flashplayer isn't seen.

Is there another dll needed?
(PS, on both PC's I use LightHouse 502G) FRUGAL install

sounds like you need to set the path to flashplayer:
menu>settings>preferences>advanced>content>plugins>change path

The first thing I did. I should have mentioned it.
It is set to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins as on the laptop PC.
All plugins in there are recognized except the flashplayer one on this Medion PC.
Whether I put the flashplayer.so or a symlink to it, It is the same.

Using both Quirky 1.3 and Lucid 5.n, I have never had a problem with flash in Opera. It just works, no hassles.

If /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins doesn't work, try placing libflashplayer.so in the subdirectory specific to the version of Opera.

For example:

/usr/local/lib/opera/plugins
or, for my 1104,
/usr/local/lib/opera-11.00-1104.i386/plugins

And, make sure "Enable plugins" is checked, under settings>preferences>advanced>content

I have my Opera 11.00-1055 .pet installed in LHP 5.00F and it also gives no problems with Flash.

I will download LHP 5.02G tonight and see if there is a problem.

Did you check libflashplayer.so with ldd ?
Also: flashplayer needs curl library (libcurl.?.so). Ldd does not show It
as dependency.

Coolpup gave me also the advice to run ldd.
I did it on the two PC's.
My conclusion is that more libraries are needed then in John Biles advice, I referenced.
This is the list:
Code:
For Console QuickStart type-> phelp <Enter>  Software versions-> ver <Enter>
<root> /usr/lib/mozilla
bash-4.1# ls -l
total 1443
drwx------ 3 root root   1024 2011-01-19 23:10 extensions
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 871320 2010-12-11 10:45 libnss3.so
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  81900 2010-12-11 10:45 libnssutil3.so
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  13180 2010-12-11 10:45 libplc4.so
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root   8844 2010-12-11 10:45 libplds4.so
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 125644 2010-12-11 10:45 libsmime3.so
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 194128 2010-12-11 10:45 libsoftokn3.so
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 168492 2010-12-11 10:45 libssl3.so
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root   1024 2011-01-23 20:46 plugins
<root> /usr/lib/mozilla
bash-4.1#
I copied them from SeaMonkey
These libraries have to be symlinked in /usr/lib.
I got it working now.
