Hi all,

I present you the Linux mozilla toolbar. Please apply the patch and 
replay on this mail.

- apply the patch
- unzip image.zip in the mozilla folder
- edit the position of the image in the redraw function 
- compile with "make"
- copy the mozilla/.libs/libvlcplugin.so file to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

- toolbar in Linux
- Play, Pause, Stop, Fullscreen and Mute buttons
- timeline, you can click on any place in the timeline and the movie 
will jump to it
- http://www.rtlgemist.nl support

- updating timeline not working well because callback function not 
working "libvlc_event_attach......"
- white line below the toolbar
- play/pause toggle not working well because ticket #1065

We appreciate any input, Thanks.
