Midori has become the default web browser in many Linux distributions such as Elementary OS Luna. Ultra light, sleek and fast, Midori is ideal for a lightweight Linux distribution. When I last reviewed Midori, it was in early development stages. It has grown a lot since then. I bumped in to Midori again when I installed Elementary OS Luna. And the first problem I encountered with Midori was missing flash player.
Nope, installing flash player was not the solution. Because I can easily watch You Tube videos with other browsers like Firefox and Chrome. This problem was specific to Midori. And in this quick tip, I am going to share the trick that worked for me to fix the missing flash player problem in Midori in Elementary OS Luna.
Fix missing flash player in Midori:
Open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and use the following command:
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer
And now create a link:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/flashplugin-alternative.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
Now use these two commands one by one:
sudo apt-get install nspluginwrapper
nspluginwrapper -v -a -n -i
And that’s it. Restart Midori and you should be able to see flash working in it. Enjoy :)
