How does one install the latest version of Adobe's Flash Player for Iceweasel/Firefox?


1 Answer 1


My solution is the following: go to Adobe's website and download the latest version (.tar.gz file): download flash player

Unpack the downloaded files:

tar xzvf /path/to/download/flash-player-archive.tar.gz

Copy the flash lib to your plugin directory:

cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

If Iceweasel (or Firefox) was already open, restart it.

  • So easy, and that's the only way it works with my environment ; it should be documented somewhere !
