Sound in Flash

I have just got going with SuSE 9.2 and I am trying to encourage my kids to play Flash games however the sound plays in konqueror but they are not playing sound in Firefix and Opera (my favourite).
Has anyone experienced this or know how I can configure this?
thanks

You need to install the plugins into the plugins directoey under the firefox-installer directory. See links below:

http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/linux.html#Flash

and

https://pfs.mozilla.org/plugins/                   for a standalone player

the flash plugin is already installed for all 3 browsers but sound only works in Konqueror - this is what is confusing me

And you have installed both the plugin and the components parts ???

   1. Download Flash Player 7.0.
   2. Decompress it, then copy libflashplayer.so to your Mozilla plugins directory and flashplayer.xpt to your Mozilla components directory.

Other than that all I can suggest is a total re-install of firefox. Never had this issue before. Are you using ALSA or OSS sound btw.

I've seen issues with this where the esound daemon needed to be in LD_PRELOAD or similar.  I'll have to check into this to see what the details were, unless someone else knows.

I found a fix for Ubuntu Linux that may work on Suse (file locations may need to be modified)  
Issue the following command in a console:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libesd.so.0 /usr/lib/libesd.so.1 (in the console, of course)

macker was on the right track- it's likely a problem with esound.

thanks - that symbolic link did the trick - I restarted the machine after issuing the command and happy days!
Now I can get my kids hooked on Linux - Cheers
