I would like to install Flash player for Firefox on Linux.

I downloaded the .tar.gz, and there are some compiled shared libraries. I am not sure how to make them work, and I am looking for a hint.

I tried to change LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point to the folder where those libraries are, but I had no luck. Any suggestions?

  • what is your linux distribution ?

Put the libflashplayer.so file in your Mozilla plugins directory (usually /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins or some variant thereof).

  • thank you, there is another library in the bundle kcm_adobe_flash_player.so what is that?

  • That's for KDE4. Looks like it goes in /usr/lib/kde4 or the like. Feb 21 '12 at 10:43
