I'm Rafael Rigues, one of the editors of Linux Magazine Brasil

While writing a review of SUSE LINUX 9.3 I came across kaffeine and the 
kaffeine-mozilla package, which lets you embed the player as a browser 
plug-in. I installed the package found on your website 
(kaffeine-mozilla-0.2-0.pm.0.i586.rpm), but discovered that it does not 
work with Firefox, because it places the plugin on the "wrong" directory.

The package links kaffeineplugin.so to /opt/mozilla/lib/plugins, but for 
Firefox on SUSE 9.3 the correct plugin dir is 
/opt/MozillaFirefox/lib/plugins. Attached to this message you will find 
a modified specfile that fixes the problem by copying the plugin to the 
correct location. After rebuilding the package from the new SPEC 
everything works fine.

I hope that you find this little fix useful.

Best regards,
