[Bug 410407] Re: [READ DESCRIPTION] Flash is not recognizing mouse clicks in multiple situations


** Description changed:

  ===+++ _____________________ !  ALL USERS  !  _____________________ +++===
  IMPORTANT 1: Please see the WORKAROUND a few lines below.
  IMPORTANT 2: Please don't post any "me too message"; use the "Does this
  bug affect you?" feature you can find a bit above this bug description
  on launchpad.
  IMPORTANT 3: Do not post anything if you haven't read all comments to
  verify that your point hasn't been made. If you feel tempted to stop
  reading because there are too many messages, that is a strong indicator
  that you shouldn't add even more comments. Developers have a tough time
  to find anything if you post redundant stuff. So please abstain from
  doing that.
  So here the bug and workarounds.
  For example on youtube, whilst it recognises my mouse moving over
  various buttons, actual mouse clicks are not recognised. I can navigate
  using 'tab' but this is very painful. I can also right click. The
  problem doesn't occur with other flash players, e.g. swfdec-mozilla.
  WORKAROUND 1: Disable compiz
  WORKAROUND 2: Remove flashplugin-nonfree / flashplugin-installer and install from adobe
  WORKAROUND 3: Open a terminal and enter:
  gksudo gedit /usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/i386/linux/npviewer
  Then add: export GDK_NATIVE_WINDOWS=1 before the last line of text
- Note: The only workaround for Chrome/Chromium users is to disable compiz.
+ Note: Chrome & Chromium are now working fine without workaround
  These workaround's have been verified to work for some users. We don't
  need verification of whether or not they work for you.
