Exclamation Adobe Shockwave Player. Help needed.

Does anybody know if there is a way I can download shockwave; is there a yum command or does autoplus have it?
I need it to do my physics homework, so I need help as soon as possible, if it isn't that much trouble. If there is not a way to download shockwave is there a substitution that works equivalently?
Thank you.

I have Fedora 15, if that matters any.

Re: Adobe Shockwave Player. Help needed.

flash is installed by default
But if you NEED the adobe version
see mjmwired web page
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-fedora-f15.html
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mj...f15.html#flash
and the yellow link at the top of the page.
"Fedora Set-Up Guides"

however the 64 bit adobe plugin 11 beta has been working just fine in the firefox 6 & 7 64 bit build

you will need the 64 bit ff for the 64 bit plugin

Re: Adobe Shockwave Player. Help needed.

Thank you, but Adobe Flash Player and Adobe Shockwave Player, are two separate things.(That I know of.)
Could you please tell me if you can run the 'Gizmo' on this webpage?:
http://www.explorelearning.com/index...ResourceID=509

Just click on the tab next to lesson info titled: Gizmo, and tell me if your able to use it.
It tells me "A plugin is needed to display this content."

Re: Adobe Shockwave Player. Help needed.

it looks like a MS windows ONLY page
using a MS windows only tool

you need windows 7 and MS internet explorer.

Re: Adobe Shockwave Player. Help needed.

Hmm; I'm not doubting your knowledge, but I know the computers at my school are all Windows XP, and I think the problem is that there isn't a substitute for Shockwave player, as I am inferring that Shockwave does not support Linux based OS, but that's just what I think. Then again I have only been using Linux for about 3 months now, so my knowledge is limited when it comes to Linux as of right now.

It does require shockwave. And JacobM is correct. There is no shockwave player for linux.

A few people have had mixed results running their browser under wine and using the windows version, but to me that isn't a very good alternative.

only thing to do is to get onto adobe and make them write a linux version.

Re: Adobe Shockwave Player. Help needed.

Darn... my physics teacher is gonna be mad :P haha and thank you both for you input.
and should I actually try to persuade them into making a Linux version? haha

One more thing, do you think wine will have something I could scavenge from there?

I don't think this is going to work for the OP - based entirely on my experience. I have this flash installed and the website is reporting that plugin is missing!

If you have a windows CD, you could use a Virtual Machine (VMware or Fedora's Virt-manager or Virtualbox). I find it to be the most convenient of options.
