How-To Fix Flash Incapability of Recognizing Mouse Clicks

December 12, 2009 3 comments

Upon upgrading to Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala, some including me noticed that any Flash-containing website like then you can’t click on that Flash object. In other words, Flash is not recognizing mouse clicks.

It appeared that this was a bug that was reported here.

A workaround for such a bug has been put in place. So here are the workarounds as the official bug tracker suggested:

  1. WORKAROUND 1: Disable compiz
  2. WORKAROUND 2: Remove flashplugin-nonfree / flashplugin-installer and install from adobe
  3. WORKAROUND 3, and this is the one worked with me:
    • Open a terminal, or you can press Alt + F2, and type
    • gksudo gedit /usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/i386/linux/npviewer
    • Then add “export GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=1” before the last line of text.
    • Save.
    • Restart your FireFox, or any application uses Flash.

So, This is it as far as I know!
