Slackware 13 – Install Flash player plugin in Firefox
I recently did an upgrade of Firefox and it broke my Flash player so here is how I fixed it.
- Download the flash player file from Adobe the file you will download is named :
As a normal user extract the .tar file from the downloaded .tar.gzip :
This will cause the .tar.gz file to disappear and what remains will be : install_flash_player_9_linux.tar
- Now untar the file, what will be extracted is a file named libflashplayer.so
tar -xvf install_flash_player_10_linux.tar
- Now as root install the file so Firefox knows about it substitute firefox-3.6.2 for whatever version of Firefox you have.
cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/firefox-3.6.2/plugins/
- Now open Firefox and your Flash player should work as normal now
Hope this helps someone!
