Additional Comments

Like in Windows, if your Flash app being run needs to reach out to the internet you will need to change the security settings inside of the Flash player.

HowTo / Notes

Make Projector the Default SWF player under Ubuntu.

1. Install "Main Menu" from your Distro's Software Center. (If it didn't already come Pre Installed) 

2. Launch "Main Menu", and Minimize it.

3. Open the EXE of Adobe Flash Player Projector using the Wine Windows Program Loader.

4. Load a SWF File, just to Run.

5.Switch back to Main Menu and check under the "Other" Category; You should see Flash Plash Player Appear.

6. Check the Last Entry of the Projector, for Example "Adobe Flash Player 16.0 r0".

7. Uncheck the "Other" Menu to remove it from the Menu List. (Optional, but do it; the Projector doesn't Launch from the Menu anyways)   

8. Close the Main Menu program. 

9. Right-Click, SWF file and go to Properties, select the "Open With" tab. Then click the Flash Player's Radio Button. (Apply Settings if needed, then Close the "Properties" window)  

10.  Double-Click a SWF file to see if it will Open in the Flash Player Projector.  

11. Finally, after it Loads you can Close everything, or play the SWF Game if you want.

In some cases you May need to use Winetricks to Install DirectX 9, in the Default Wine Prefix. If you get nothing then a Black Screen and Audio. As for SWF files just Google "SwfChan", that site allows SWF file Downloads.

What do you mean by "change the security settings inside of the Flash player"? Where are those options? I have this version of the projector, but all I see are microphone, camera and local storage settings. The global options does nothing.

The SWF file cannot load some content and fails.

It looks like this has changed in Flash 16 - there is no way to get to the "Global Settings" window anymore - I can access it for Linux but I don't think that would apply to the projector because it's not in WIne - the configure page also doesn't load in Internet Explorer - I may have to adjust the test results.

Do you have a public SWF I can grab that has such external dependencies (either external outside the local working directory, or external as in on the internet) so I can try and work on a workaround? (Test results latest downgraded to Gold)
