Yes, most of it works in 4.5.0. But 4.6.0 has much better NPAPI support
for X11.

The public NPAPI code in Qt/WebKit for linux requires X11.

For DirectFB, you will have to implement the entire Plugin
infrastructure in Webkit yourself. Same goes for Linux fb. In both
cases, you will also need to somehow get hold of the flash plugin with
support for fb, presumably by contacting Adobe.
