Prior to the most recent update, I have been able to use LiveMocha with FlashPlayer. Now FlashPlayer is unrecognized by LiveMocha. I get the "Get Flash" message. How do I fix this?
I did this steps and been able to use FlashPalayer in LiveMocha. This lines install the Google Chrome stable, that comes with FlashPlayer 11.4.
wget -q -O - https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add -.
gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google.list(opens a graphical text editor)
Paste the text:
deb http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/ stable main
sudo apt-get update.
sudo apt-get install google-chrome-stable.
Unfortunately, Livemocha's website is basically hostile to Linux in general. If you try to login to Livemocha today (18 August 2013 - maybe they will fix it), using either Firefox or Google Chrome, their site will not let you login or create an account if you are using Linux.
I have to say that up to now I have never encountered a webpage (even on microsoft.com) that is quite as hostile to Linux as this. I am a long-time Livemocha user, and even paid for an account there (which I now regret), but I think it's time to move to one of the alternative language-learning sites.
Hi I figured that livemocha requires flash version 11.3 or higher and somehow my firefox and chromium browser were showing 11.2 in http://www.whatismyflash.com/ . I reinstalled chrome browser and the site worked in chrome browser. I believe reinstalling of browser should solve the problem.
I had the same problem, whenever I try to log in it shows me this error message:
Livemocha is not supported on Linux. Visit us from your Mac or PC to access the full Livemocha experience. We can't wait to see you there!
But, when I ran this command on the Terminal, it worked:
chromium-browser --user-agent="Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/30.0.1599.17 Safari/537.36"
Here, it works.
