Default No multimedia/adobe-flash-plugin or www/firefox-bin-flash...

The flash plugins can't be found when trying to download them, so I'm trying to get it working the way I did when I was using Linux and I installed the newest version of Adobe's site.
I would just unpack their tar.gz and get the libflashplayer.so file, then put that in the mozilla plugins directory. But using NetBSD, I don't have any such directory. I even tried making a Plugins/ directory in /usr/pkg/lib/firefox/Plugins and putting it there, but that doesn't work.
What should I do about the Flash plugin for Firefox?
What are you supposed to do with the libflashplayer.so from Adobe's tar.gz? I have Linux emulation installed, should I just install it from one of Adobe's other installation versions, like the RPM version?

You need to learn how to use pkgsrc
Here is your flash

I know, I've tried installing both multimedia/adobe-flash-plugin and www/firefox-bin-flash.

Code:
fetch: Unable to fetch expected file flashplayer10_install_linux_070208.tar.gz
*** Error code 1

Stop.
make: stopped in /usr/pkgsrc/multimedia/adobe-flash-plugin
Code:
fetch: Unable to fetch expected file install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz
*** Error code 1

Stop.
make: stopped in /usr/pkgsrc/www/firefox-bin-flash

Using Linux, it was easy to just untar Adobe's tar.gz file and move the libflashplayer.so to the Mozilla plugins directory, but I don't have a Mozilla or Firefox plugins directory anywhere, and I'm wondering where that would go. I tried the RPM just now and it gave me a very long list of failed dependencies... and the pkgsrc files are nowhere to be found.

Have you seen and followed the instructions in http://netbsd.org/docs/guide/en/netbsd.html#chap-linux ?

BTW I have to admit that I never install the flash-plugin on any of my BSD machines. In the 10 years that I use BSD, I have seen too many people struggling with flash. If there really is something I want to see I boot into Linux

Okay, I installed www/nspluginwrapper and multimedia/ns-flash and it's working fine now. Thanks for the help.

I read that page, but didn't think to try nspluginwrapper and ns-flash yet because I figured there was an easy way to find or make a mozilla or firefox plugins directory and move the libflashplayer.so there...

It's easier to pretend flash doesn't exist then to deal with the many kludges around to get it "working".

If you want flash, don't use BSD.

Isn't there a .Mozilla directory in your home directory? Under Linux I just create a plugins folder in /home/user/.Mozilla/blablax97 and extract the flash plugin in that folder.

tolstoi, this thread is over six months old, & c_moriarty has not logged in since. I wouldn't recommend setting your expectations too high on getting a response soon.
