The npMagic Plugin

This Netscape plugin lies to Flash so Flash 10 will work in Opera under Solaris

Just create a directory called magic in your plugin path and place there. Then place in your real plugin directory, where you placed your magic directory.

The structure is fixed. An example would be:

Terse instructions for the impatient

cd /usr/lib/opera/plugins 
pfexec curl '' -o ./ 
pfexec mkdir magic 
pfexec ln -s /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/ magic/

And you're done.
