I had a request last night to modify my Flash Player detection code so it would work on Linux Firefox 1.5, as apparently it doesn’t work. As it turns out, the detection code is probably fine: the problem is that Linux doesn’t support Flash Player 8.
That said, there’s nothing in the Emergent Task Timer Onlier Prototype that requires Player 8 features (the changes are mainly in video, bitmap, and font rendering), so I have re-exported as Flash Player 7. So Linux Users, please report in and tell me if it works! Even though apparently there is only one of you…let it not be said that Dave Seah doesn’t care about Linux users! :-) I don’t use Linux GUIs personally, I install my distributions text-only.

P.S. If you ARE a Linux user, please let me know in the comments! I’d be curious if this is something I should be supporting more in general.
