Sorry, removing pluginreg.dat did not help. Could it have something to do with the other plugins that I have loaded as listed above?

I'm not able to reproduce your problem right now. It works for me in Mozilla 1.7.1-5, an in Konqueror 3.2.3-1.

The plugin has never worked in Opera - there seem to be problems on their side (I have filed a bug with them a long time ago, but never got an answer).

Some things you might check:

- Try to remove your $HOME/.mozilla/pluginreg.dat and
restart Mozilla. The plugin should show up in
"about:plugins" after this.
- Make sure the correct plugin path is included in the
Konqueror configuration. See Menu->Settings->Configure
- Check Opera's configuration (Preferences->Plugins).
The plugin path needs to contain the directory with the
plugin (/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins). Opera should find the
plugin, although it will not work.

Hope this helps,

I've tried version 0.4.1 of mozilla-bonobo, packaged for Debian, in three different browsers with the same result - the plugin is not listed as available to the browser, although it is linked to in the mozilla plugins directory /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins:
