Is There Any Way To Get A (Deb.) Adobe Flash Player 11.2?

Postby Ziliakquant on Sun Dec 09, 2012 8:35 pm

I was trying to play: http://www.theamazingspiderman.com/game/ but I needed the latest version of flash. There has been many games or programs I have tried to use and it needed the same software so I thought a linux forum would be the perfect place to ask. I use debian and don't know how to instal (.tar.gz)s or pretty much any other file format other than Microsoft but that's not really an option Xb. (That's mostly why I posted this in the Newbie Questions category)

Can I have a link for any (.Deb) versions of the Adobe Flash Player 11.2? Maybe a link to a site that might have one?

Thanks :D

what do you mean exactly? debian proper? lmde? flash is pre-installed in lmde.

open a trminal and give us the output of
Code: Select all
lsb_release -a; cat /etc/apt/sources.list

I use debian as a software and I need the latest update of flash but I can't find a (.deb) file in the list from this page: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

I was wondering if there was any other place I could find the (.deb) package. I tried googleing it but I couldn't find the right answer there.

I typed this the code you gave me into my terminal and it said this: No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Debian
Description: Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.3 (squeeze)
Release: 6.0.3
Codename: squeeze
#

# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.1a _Squeeze_ - Official Multi-architecture amd64/i386 NETINST #1 20110320-15:14]/ squeeze main

#deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.1a _Squeeze_ - Official Multi-architecture amd64/i386 NETINST #1 20110320-15:14]/ squeeze main

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze main contrib non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main contrib non-free

# squeeze-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze-updates main
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze-updates main
deb http://www.backports.org/debian etch-backports main contrib non-free
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian squeeze main contrib non-free
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian squeeze main contrib non-free

Not sure what that means but I bet some of you might XD

(By the way I'm not a huge cody kinda guy. I know some basic stuff and some advanced stuff but I don't really know what some things mean like lmde or debian proper lol)

Thanks for pursuing my question :D

you can find a lot of .deb-files at packages.ubuntu.com
here is what you're trying to find: http://packages.ubuntu.com/quantal/flas ... -installer
(download links are at the bottom of the page)

Ziliakquant,
and if you do this
Code: Select all
apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
will it solve the question?

Zil,
if you open a new tab in your browser (i assume you are using iceweasel) and type about:plugins press enter and search for Shockwave Flash which version is there listed?

I use aurora :) and it says I have Shockwave Flash but I don't know what version

(By the way: I need an update on Adobe Flash wich is: Adobe Flash Player 11.2. I already have the regular version I just need the new updated one :D)

Thanks
