Wine and K-Meleon 1.5.4

I am now in K-Meleon 1.5.4 using Wine 1.1.43-i486 in Archpup-1204, a new mini (78 MB) live distro from the Puppy Linux family based in this case on Arch Linux stuff having no preinstalled browser.

Exceptionnaly, K-Meleon works really very well in Linux, the pages are good and fast. ebay works, the Puppy Linux forum works, this forum works etc. refuses this browser. doesn't work probably because no flashplayer.
I did download and install it with the Adobe installer. nothing to do.

What is the solution?

Kind regards

I presume that you have put the file npswf32.dll into
the plugins folder of K-Meleon.
If not, copy it over from a subfolder of the /root/.wine
configuration folder.
I think that archpup has no file
in the folder /usr/lib or /lib.
I have found a package mentioned in the puppy forum, here

which includes .
The address of the mentioned attched package missinglibs.tar.gz is :

Download it to /root and unpack it to /root with the command

tar -C /root -zxf missinglibs.tar.gz

You will find the file .

Rename it to (which overwrites the symlink
and copy it to the folder /usr/lib/ .

This should enable youtube and most other flash videos.
(Youtube may ask for a newer browser. Ignore it by
pressing the ignore button).

The jt on France2 seems not to work with this K-Meleon version.
Ypu can try to set a different useragent in the menu custom of
the user agent menu.

I hope that this works.
Sometimes Flash 10, which is still being updated is better.

If there should other libs be missing, take a look
at my advice from this post :,107748
