  If installing debs, you don't have to do this at all. Your paths are
also wrong.

  That's not a good idea...

  A grey box, if Gnash is installed correctly means you need to install
the ffmpeg gstreamer plugin.

  If you installed the debs, *don't* do all these other steps. All those
just screw things up from ever working.

  A plugin doesn't have dependencies, and yes, just having in the right place (which installing the debs will do)
is all you need to do. The plugin does depend on the standalone Gnash
install, and it's the standalone that has the dependencies, which
installing the deb should take care of.
