Re: nspluginwrapper and Debian unstable


I have debian-i386 installed in chroot and nspluginwrapper seems to
work without obvious errors. In particular, I see it in Seamonkey's
about:plugins page as

Netscape 4 Plugins Wrapper

   File name: npwrapper.so
   nspluginwrapper adds support for i386 compiled Netscape 4 plugins.
   This is beta software available under the terms of the GNU General
Public License.

MIME Type 	Description 	Suffixes 	Enabled
unknown/mime-type 	Do not open 	none 	Yes

But that is useless anyway. For example, I've wrapped flashplugin but
Seamonkey does not see it. And no error of any kind is reported. So I
have no idea what's wrong.

I recently came across nspluginwrapper
( http://www.gibix.net/dokuwiki/en:projects:nspluginwrapper ), which
let's you use 32-bit browser plugins with the 64-bit build of Mozilla

Using instructions at
http://www.ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-193893.html to get it
working with Ubuntu doesn't work for Debian.

When I run Galeon from the command line, and select about:plugins, this
comes up on the console:
/usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/i386/npviewer.bin: error while loading shared
libraries: libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0......

Ubuntu has a ia32-libs-gtk package that provides this library (which
allows nspluginwrapper to work), whereas Debian's ia32-libs package
doesn't have it, and Debian doesn't have an ia32-libs-gtk equivalent (at
least I don't think so, and searching the contents of packages at
packages.debian.org seems to be busted ATM).

Anyone have any success with this on Debian unstable?
