So you purged all packages that have anything to do with flash but there
are residual files? What are they and where are they and why don't you
remove them if they truly exist? Doesn't seem normal to me. Apparently,
Konqueror is lying to you. I don't believe in mystery files.
Maybe I should.

Yeah, forget it. I read this from you :
I am trying to find any remaining files in order to rm them, in the
apparently vain hope that Flashplayer will actually play!! And
Konqueror says that the file is libklashpart.so, and that it plays
Shockwave Flash 7.
and thought that meant you wanted to play flash with a plugin other than
gnash, which for me could only mean the nonfree baby, but forget it
because I don't understand any of it and won't be doing so any time
Sorry for the noise. I'm outta here.
