flash player 10 or alternative software

I Have just purchased an acer aspire one a110 -ap n270 notepad computer.

i am trying to install flashplayer 10 onto it, but having problems installing the software.

Had tryed to install the free download from ADOBE site but mayhave installed the incorrect one (unsure) as its not working on computer.

When i am trying to play games on computer from different sites it is asking me to still install flash player 10

i am not very computer literate so an idiots guide would be useful to do this.

If the computer cannot install flashplayer 10, is there an alternative software i can use

any feedback would be much appreciated

Ok… fist of all see if flashplugin is available in your package manager, if it is, install it from there. (It is always best to install software through the package manager if it is available)

If not, and you are using Firefox -

Go to
and download the tar.gz version, and place it in your home directory.

You should now have a file called install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz in you home directory… now lets unpack the file.
Open a terminal and type:

cd ~
tar -xvzf install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz

remembering to hit enter after each line

You should now have a file called libflashplayer.so in your home directory.

We now need to create a ~/.mozilla/plugins/ directory and move the file into it
So again in a terminal type;

mkdir ~/.mozilla/plugins/
mv ~/libflashplayer.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/

again remembering to hit enter after each line

(the full stop IS supposed to be there, and remember Linux IS case sensitive)
(any directory that starts with a full stop is a hidden directory, so you will not be able to see it unless you select ‘Show Hidden Files’ in your file manager)

Flash should now work in Firefox.

thanks mark for the quick response
