Cannot install Adobe flash plugin: Iceweasel web browser: Os- Boss linux tejas


HI,

I've recently installed BOSS linux in my PC which already has Iceweasel web browser. Cannot play videos from sites such as youtube.

I'm getting a message "Upgrade to Flash Player 10 for improved playback performance. Upgrade Now or get more info".

ON visiting the adobe site, i downloaded the plugin with the tar.gz extension.

on extraction, i got only a single file named "libflashplayer.so".

Don't know what to do!

Please help me, Thanks in advance

Hi, Welcome to LQ!

LQ has a fantastic search function that may save you time waiting for an answer to a popular question.

With over 3 million posts to search it's possible the answer has been given.


check where the files exist first, and substitute the addresses into a list
Code:
locate libflashplayer.so && locate npflash.so && locate iceweasel
I use this...
Code:
echo "check dirs exist, if not make dir......"
sudo mkdir /usr/lib64/browser-plugins
sudo mkdir /usr/lib64/flash-plugin
sudo mkdir /usr/lib64/mozilla
sudo mkdir /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins
sudo mkdir /usr/lib64/netscape
sudo mkdir /usr/lib64/netscape/plugins
sudo mkdir /usr/lib64/nspluginwrapper
sudo mkdir /usr/lib64/nspluginwrapper/x86_64
sudo mkdir /usr/lib64/nspluginwrapper/x86_64/linux
sudo mkdir /usr/lib/browser-plugins
sudo mkdir /usr/lib/flash-plugin
sudo mkdir /usr/lib/mozilla
sudo mkdir /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
sudo mkdir /usr/lib/netscape
sudo mkdir /usr/lib/netscape/plugins
sudo mkdir /usr/lib/nspluginwrapper
sudo mkdir /usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/x86_64
sudo mkdir /usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/x86_64/linux
backup...
Code:
#! /bin/bash
echo "Flash Player 10.0 x86_64 Alpha"
echo "backup old libflashplayer files including npwrapper, if available...."
sudo cp /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so /home/glenn/build/libflashplayer.so.bak
sudo cp /usr/lib/flash-plugin/npflash.so /home/glenn/build/npflash.so.bak
sudo cp /usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/x86_64/linux/npwrapper.so /home/glenn/build/npwrapper.so.bak
then substitute your locations for mine here...swap mozilla for the iceweasel addresses.
Code:
sudo cp /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib64/browser-plugins/libflashplayer.so
sudo cp /usr/lib/flash-plugin/npflash.so /usr/lib64/browser-plugins/npflash.so
sudo cp /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib64/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so

sudo cp /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
sudo cp /usr/lib/flash-plugin/npflash.so /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/npflash.so

sudo cp /usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/x86_64/linux/npwrapper.so /usr/lib64/nspluginwrapper/x86_64/linux/npwrapper.so
sudo cp /usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/x86_64/linux/npwrapper.so /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/npwrapper.so

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so /home/glenn/.mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/flash-plugin/npflash.so /home/glenn/.mozilla/plugins/npflash.so


#root
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so /root/.mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/flash-plugin/npflash.so /root/.mozilla/plugins/npflash.so
… not all the directories are used with my system, but they are popular places.
you might also install the netscape plugin wrapper. nspluginwrapper
