installation adobe flash player

Postby hltr » Thu Nov 09, 2017 6:58 pm

Hello!

i downloaded tar.gz file from official site adobe Flash Player. Unpacked him, and did read readme.txt file. And that i see:

Installation instructions
-------------------------
Installing using the plugin tar.gz:
o Unpack the plugin tar.gz and copy all the files to /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/

Im did do it...im did dont see logic in that, but i make that, - i unzipped with command

Code: Select all

 tar zxf
, copy all into /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/...and....nothing not happened..

How realy did work it, and why they did write that?)

thanks

Why the tar file? They have a .deb for Ubuntu that works in Mint, also. And I see flashplugin-installer available in Synaptic/Software Manager.

Downloads and Installs the Adobe Flash Player plugin. The Adobe Flash Player
plugin supports playing of media and other dynamic content online.


That's where I would start.

One of our highly knowledgeable forums members has written a great tutorial on installing software:

The best way to install software is always Software Manager or Synaptic, but don't be afraid to ask if you want to install something that's not in the usual repositories.
