Yep, it's called Gnash, and it's in the beta stage as far as I know.
It's in the repositories for Ubuntu Edgy, and it works pretty well for
simple animations (but it doesn't work for anything like Youtube yet).
Is there a community repository anywhere for gNewSense which has it in?
My point with Konqueror is that it asks to install the official
Macromedia (now Adobe) plugin, which is proprietary. It'd be good if it
could ask to install Gnash instead, from the repositories or maybe the
