The task is to develop the standalone player for X Window System (OS GNUL/Linux) which will be able to play plugins designed for Netscape Plugin API ([NPAPI]). [Adobe Flash Player plugin version 7] and [Adobe Flash Player plugin version 9] have to be supported at least.
The player's window must have no menu and no decoration except that's provided by window manager. The player (let's call it 'npp' - Netscape Plugin Player) usage have to be:
npp [-p] <the plugin> [arguments to pass to the plugin...]
The '-p' option causes 'npp' pause just before actual passing the control to the plugin (the output window should have already created and all necessary initialization should have been done, though). The SIGUSR1 signal will force 'npp' to continue playing after the pause. The SIGTERM is used to terminate the player.
The package which contains complete and fully-functional working:
* player itself (with complete source code included);
* installation programs which install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.

OS GNU/Linux, X Window System (X11R6.9)
The player itself has to be workable under clear X Window System without depending on GNOME/KDE monsters.
