    Hey,

    As the title states, I am using a Konqueror browser, that arrives with the
    "KDE" system.Also, I toured the website of the distributor, but unfortunatly,
    it holds no value.

    Can you paste the exact error text/install log? It sounds like the installer
    is trying to write files to a folder which the user running it does not have
    the relevant perms to.

    Also, which distro are you using, and have you tried the RPM (if RPM is
    available on your platform)?

    On my distro (OpenSUSE 10.2) there is a non-OSS repository, and Flash was
    installed and is updated for me. It works perfectly in Firefox for me, but
    although Konqueror picks up the plug in installation and knows where the
    objects are on the screen, I just see a grey square. I use Firefox as my main
    browser, so I've not really looking into why it doesn't work.

    Konqueror is a great browser and the plugin worked fine with it thru
    ndiswrapper (because there is no 64bit native plugin from Adobe yet) until last
    version 115.

    I use Mandriva 2008 and Flash player is working for years -until now.
