Keep Adobe Flash Player onhand...

Postby snison on Thu Dec 27, 2012 1:32 am

For those that use LiveUSB for certain reasons, most notably no browing history from your wife/boss, you can keep Adobe onhand.
This method is much easier to me than the wget this, make directory that, put .so here on the web.

Code: Select all
http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

APT for Ubuntu 10.04+
Open with Software Manager
Use this source
terminal ->
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get download adobe-flashplugin


to get it to your to your usb
Code: Select all
sudo cp adobe-flashplugin*.deb /cdrom/

The system sees the USB drive as /cdrom/. You must use sudo to copy it to /cdrom/.

to install it next time you LiveUSB boot
Code: Select all
sudo dpkg -i /cdrom/adobe-flashplugin(press TAB)
example: sudo dpkg-i /cdrom/adobe-flashplugin_11.2.202.258-0oneiric1_i386.deb
example: sudo dpkg -i /cdrom/adobe-flashplugin_11.2.202.258-0quantal1_amd64.deb

Once you type adobe-flashplugin hit the TAB key and it will autocomplete the filename.

I guess this is a tutorial for Linux Mint 9?

Then perhaps I fail to understand the purpose; Adobe Flash comes already installed on Linux Mint. Unless you have the OEM version.

I got the stripped version, but it also works on Ubuntu.

Ah, well on the OEM version of Linux Mint you can install Adobe Flash by installing the package mint-flashplugin (through the Software Manager, or by running "apt install mint-flashplugin"). That package is not available on Ubuntu, but then this is the tutorial section for Linux Mint and not for Ubuntu :wink:

When the best speed you can get is 3G and it only gets 60KB/sec it's not adventurous to download a 16+MB plugin every time you do a live boot.

What package isn't available on Ubuntu?

Perhaps look into persistent mode, or just install Linux Mint to the USB thumb drive. So you can install programs you need once, and carry them with you to work or wherever. Sorry for derailing your tutorial :(
