Many of you might be familiar with my post concerning How to install Flock on Ubuntu. I’ve been using Flock now for months and I really enjoy it. Recently, however, I noticed that a few multimedia functions that I had supported in Firefox were not supported in Flock, despite the fact that the correct plugins were installed. After a little research I realized that this was due to Flock merely not knowing where to find them. Below is a quick one-line command to make sure Flock matches any multimedia support that Firefox has, whether this be Flash Player 9 Beta on Ubuntu, Java, etc.
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/* /opt/flock/plugins
Basically, if you didn’t follow what that command does, it simply creates a symbolic link inside the flock/plugins folder to any plugin available in firefox. Running this command will make sure that anything supported as a Firefox plugin will also be supported as a Flock plugin (this, of course, is based on the fact that Flock is based on Firefox).
note: if you’ve added or updated any plugins for Firefox you may need to repeat the command to re-sync anything new to your Flock plugins.
