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

  • First in the KDE desktop, open the console
  • Code:
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.
