OK, to make it slightly easier to install the latest 32bit flashplayer 188.8.131.52
for Firefox, I've uploaded the file you need to my dropbox.
Open a terminal... you can do this by hitting Alt+F2
, then typing terminal
, then clicking "Run
When the terminal opens, enter these 5 commands (hitting enter after each one)
Create a ~/.mozilla/plugins directory
(this command may fail if the directory already exists... this is normal... just move on to the next command)
Change directory to ~/.mozilla/plugins :
Use wget to download the flashplayer archive:
Extract the libflashplayer
.so file from the flashplayer achive:
tar -zxvf flashplayer11-32bit.tar.gz
Move the flashplayer archive back to your home folder to make it easier to delete if you wish:
mv -v flashplayer11-32bit.tar.gz ~/flashplayer11-32bit.tar.gz
You can now close the terminal.
Now close ALL
running instances of Firefox, then reopen it... then go to this website:http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/
where you can check which version of flashplayer you are currently using.
If that link says you are using a version older than 184.108.40.206... see below.
You *may* have to (in Firefox) go to Tools>Add-Ons>Plugins
and make sure the only
" plugin that is enabled
is the 11.0r1
one... and restart Firefox
Once done, you can delete the flashplayer11-32bit.tar.gz
file from your home directory, if you wish.
