I am a loyal "epiphany" user too, and yesterday I tried out "gnash"
installing "gnash-0.7.1-7.fc6.i386.rpm" and
"gnash-plugin-0.7.1-7.fc6.i386.rpm".After closing all "epiphany"
windows and opening a new one, "about:plugins"
showed the "gnash" plugin in the very first line.
The plugin actually does something on a "flash" animated web page although
not quite what it is meant to do ...
Anyway, it was not a matter of not getting picked up at all. The "gnash"
plugin lives in the same "/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins" directory as the other
plugins, e.g. installed by "totem".
My system is a "rawhide" system as of 2006-09-03. I hence assume the problem
is related to your particular setup.
I wasn't suggesting changing the directory as such, I merely
if we had a standard (defacto or otherwise) since it did not appear
that way when actually checking if the plugins were picked up in
I'm happy to see that we do infact have an unofficial standard, now we
are still stuck with some issues. I take it since something like the
gnash plugin does install in the correct place not being picked up by
Firefox is a bug then?
