  • Did you try and downloaded it off of Adobe's website. I had this same problem before and when I downloaded it off of their website it worked.

  • Hi Rahul,

    I suggest that you use the package manager "yum" to install the flash plugin. Using the package manager is usually the most preferred method because it will provide updates for your software.

    For instructions on how to install the flash plugin in Fedora 11, checkout the fedoraguide.info website at
    http://www.fedoraguide.info/index.php?title=Main_Page#Flash

    Here are the instructions (from fedoraguide.info site):

    First install #Adobe repository.
    http://www.fedoraguide.info/index.php?title=Main_Page#Adobe

    * Install the Flash Plugin

    su -c 'yum install flash-plugin'

    * If you don't hear audio during playback of flash video just install packet called libflashsupport

    su -c 'yum install libflashsupport'

    Installation without #Adobe repository: Install Flash Player 10:

    su -c 'rpm -ivh http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/flash-plugin-10.0.12.36-release.i386.rpm'

    * 64bit Flash

    Make sure to uninstall flash-plugin, libflashsupport and nspluginwrapper before you do these steps

    wget http://download.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashplayer10/libflashplayer-10.0.d20.7.linux-x86_64.so.tar.gz
    tar xvzf libflashplayer-10.0.d20.7.linux-x86_64.so.tar.gz -C ~/.mozilla/plugins

    restart Firefox

    For those who are using Ubuntu, they should checkout ubuntuguide.org for the proper instructions.

    Hope this helps.

  • In Firefox, you can check how Firefox is configured to open Flash files through Preferences>Applications. This can show you if your browser is configured for Flash media, which is a more informative method than just opening a page with Flash on it.

  • If is not recommended to attempt to compile a program from source if you are a newer user, which is what appears to be your problem.

    The recommended ways to get software such as flash are first to check your distro's package management system to see if it is available or (less recommended) you can download the application from the software vendor's websites.

    The reason why it is preferred not to use the vendor's packages is because they may be missing some necessary modification or optimizations that may restrict them from running on your distro, byt using the package management repos for your distro you are install programs that have been testing by users of the same distro.
