Adobe Flash Player
Adobe Flash Player is the high-performance, lightweight, highly expressive client runtime that delivers powerful and consistent user experiences across major operating systems, browsers, mobile phones, and devices.
Installing On AMD64 Machines
Update: An alpha version of 64-bit Adobe Flash Player 10 for Linux operating systems was released on 11/17/2008. This should make the instructions below obsolete. However, since LinuxMCE runs an older version of Kubuntu these instructions are still valid. Will update once new version is out to see if code still applies
- First in the KDE desktop, open the console
sudo apt-get install nspluginwrapper (it may ask for your password, which is linuxmce, if you installed from the DVD)
- Next type:
wget http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz tar xvfz install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz
- Next Type:
mkdir -pv ~/.mozilla/plugins cp -iv install_flash_player_9_linux/libflashplayer.so ~/.mozilla/plugins nspluginwrapper -i ~/.mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
- Close firefox and then reopen and test, it should now play flash.
