As Seth said, the current release version of Adobe Flash Player on popular Linux variants is v7.0. There's a preview release of the 9.x generation here: http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flashplayer9/ I'm on a PC at the moment, but I believe this should work for Kuler, which does the fullscreen, kick-out-the-browser-chrome interface now available for Flash Video. Interesting fullscreen video demos here: http://labs.adobe.com/wiki/index.php/Flash_Player:9:Update:Full-Screen_Mode:Demos Shockwave is a different runtime engine, for Macromedia Director presentations. I'm not sure how it entered this conversation. For "How might a fresh install of Adobe Flash Player 9 beta for Linux not display Kuler?" then possibilities include, but are not limited to: non-compliant Linux (64-bit not yet native, eg); browser needs refresh (check version number on testpage); other. Much might depend on what exactly happens, what you do and see. In the Kuler forum (linked off the Labs page) I see that someone else on Linux is saying "it dont work", but without providing diagnostic info... might want to check into that thread in case a scenario can be identified. And btw, looking back at these "Death of Websafe" posts, it's hard to believe that these articles came out six years ago.... http://www.lynda.com/hex.asp http://www.webmonkey.com/webmonkey/00/37/index2a.html?tw=design jd -- John Dowdell .
