So I downloaded Flock with Firefox and let Gdebi handle the installation, which went flawless.
Flock installed itself into /usr/share/ (strange choice but hey) and I decided to link the contents of the mozilla plugins to the flock plugins.
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/* /usr/share/flock/plugins/
All done and set to go but….. Flash did not work
Flock tells me in the statusbar: The plugin initialization failed. Reload the page to try again.
So after removing the Flock-Package ‘sudo apt-get remove flock’ I decided to try a manual install:
Downloaded Flock with Firefox from the Flock downloadpage.
Extracted the package using Nautilus.
Moved the Extracted folder to /usr/local/
sudo mv flock/ /usr/local/
then made a symlink of the executable of Flock to /usr/local bin/ to make flock execute without having to key in the path:
sudo ln -s /usr/local/flock/flock /usr/local/bin/flock
and symlinked the plugins of Mozilla into the pluginfolder of Flock.
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/* /usr/local/flock/plugins/
Now I fired up Flock (keyed in flock in my terminal) and everything went fine
but…Still no working flash!
So if anyone knows how to get flash going, (Java and all works fine) let me know; I want to finish this scribble properly.
