after a long time with Ubuntu I decided to install Arch (KDE).
I set almost everything up except for the audio on Youtube, that still does not work. ((I created the new directory for browser-plugins in lib and lib64 ad copied the .so file of the flash [and did the remaining part of the installation]). Observe that in order to make the audio work on the laptop I added a file .asoundrc into the home directory with the lines
On the other hand on the KDE standard browser I cannot even watch any video.
I would be grateful if someone of you could tell me how to solve these problems,
There is a flashplugin package in these parts. Just install it from the repositories.
as WonderWoofy just said, there is no need for you to try to manualy install flash plugin, just do a "sudo pacman -S flashplugin"
additionaly, be sure to first delete everything you did manualy before running pacman
try unmuting channels in alsamixer
"type hw" bypasses dmix and goes straight to the hardware. So I wouldn't recommend that as the default.
With KDE, check what Phonon is doing - apparently, that can keep the soundcard open.
Actually I made everything work by a manual installation of the plugin... and now after pacman -Syu it does not work again. Actually this should not happen... I use to trust linux update in general!
Anyway many thanks for the replies
i recomend you to try gnash player, is another flash plugin developed by the GNU. In my opinion works better than the adobe plugin and more important is more secure.
pacman -S gnash-gtk gnash-common pacman -R flashplugin
But it look more like a hw trouble.
