It works perfectly !!

Hi Henry, others,

As of the latest weekly development release of Opera (see =A0
http://my.opera.com/desktopteam/blog/), it's now possible to use any Linux =
=A0
plugin in the native Opera for FreeBSD version, including Flash and =A0
Acrobat Reader. The feature will be included in the upcoming Opera 9.1.

=46or now, it'll require some actions to get it to work, but if you'd like =
=A0
to experiment with this, this might help:
0) Make sure you have the x11/linux-xorg-libs port installed.

1) Download and extract the latest weekly release for both FreeBSD and =A0
Linux:
http://snapshot.opera.com/unix/Weekly-507/intel-freebsd/opera-9.10-20061205=
=2E4-shared-qt.i386.freebsd-en-507.tar.bz2
http://snapshot.opera.com/unix/Weekly-507/intel-linux/opera-9.10-20061205.1=
=2Dstatic-qt.i386-en-507.tar.bz2
(FreeBSD package is for FreeBSD 6.x and requires Qt installed)

2) Copy operapluginwrapper from the Linux package over to the FreeBSD =A0
package:
$ cd opera-9.10-20061205.4-shared-qt.i386.freebsd-en-507
$=20
cp =A0../opera-9.10-20061205.1-static-qt.i386-en-507/plugins/operapluginwra=
pper =A0
plugins/

Now, if you want to run the Opera weekly directly from the package without =
=A0
installing (will use a fresh, empty profile, recommended):

3) Copy libnpp.so within the FreeBSD package to a new location:
$ cp plugins/libnpp.so bin/libnpp.so

4) Run Opera
$ ./opera

If instead you want to install Opera for all users (will overwrite =A0
existing installations and use your default profile, not recommended with =
=A0
development releases like this):

3) Run install
$ ./install.sh

4) Copy libnpp.so manually to the Opera binary directory
$ cp plugins/libnpp.so /usr/local/share/opera/bin/

5) Run Opera
$ /usr/local/bin/opera

The actions described here do not affect Java; you'll still be able to run =
=A0
Java applets with the native version of Java (such as diablo-jdk or =A0
diablo-jre).

We appreciate any reports on whether this feature works as expected (or =A0
doesn't at all).

I'm using it here - the path to use is =A0
/usr/local/diablo-jdk1.5.0/jre/lib/i386/. You can post on the forum if you =
=A0
have more problems with this. It could be that you're using a package =A0
that's compiled for a different version of FreeBSD; use the .4 package if =
=A0
you're on FreeBSD 6.

See above :)

I don't know about that, but you could file a bug at =A0
http://bugs.opera.com/.
