Flash Player on Firefox on solaris

0 votes

I usually download the tarballs for Solaris for Firefox from the contrib directory at

With 20.0.1 I created a plugins directory in /opt/firefox (that being where I extracted the tarball) and put a link to my flashplayer there: -> /opt/flash/lib/

Alls well and dandy and flash player works.

I just downloaded 22.0 and did the same thing and trying streetview on google it tells me I need to get Flash Player 10 or later.

A truss(1) showed that SFWfirefox is now access(2)ng directories:


On a multi-user Solaris 11 system, where some users cant be trusted to never point their browser and its plugins at malware laden websites, your safest bet may be to put the plugin for Googles Streetview or Tom Kurian and companys Enterprise Manager and the for John Fowler and companys ILOM in $HOME.

Try /opt/firefox/browser/plugins/ (if the plugins directory doesnt exist in /opt/firefox/browser/ just create it).

/brower/plugins/ as the only directory being checked for plugins started in 21.0. I was totally confused when I ran across the same issue in Linux, and wound up spending a bunch of time looking through the Firefox help pages trying to figure it out.

I tried to compile git 2.4.3 on Solaris 10. I used the following configuration:

$ ./configure --without-iconv

$ grep -i iconv config.status
 set X /bin/bash './configure' '--without-iconv'
$ac_configure_extra_args --no-create --no-recursion

But when I try to compile it, I get an error that libiconv is missing:

 LINK git-credential-store
Undefined first referenced
 symbol in file
libintl_gettext libgit.a(lockfile.o)
libiconv_close libgit.a(utf8.o)
libiconv_open libgit.a(utf8.o)
libintl_ngettext libgit.a(date.o)
libiconv libgit.a(utf8.o)
ld: fatal: symbol referencing errors. No output written to git-credential-store
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
gmake: *** [git-credential-store] Error 1

How can I work around this?
