Downloading and installing Macromedia Flash?


Hello Linux Gurus, I have tried to download and install Macromedia
Flash into the Mozilla browser. I must be doing something wrong
when I get to the line choose /usr/home/.netscape or
usr/home/.mozilla I make the selection but every time it fails to
follow up the action, I do not have netscape installed as a browser
only mozilla, which is adequate for my usage. If anyone has any
info it would be most appreciated, I am using a Redhat 9 distro,
I am new to Linux and it is taking me a little time to fully understand
what is going on. Thanks for any help!!!!!!!!!!
Regards Mike C.

just copy flashplayer.xpt and libflashplayer.so to your ~/.mozilla/plugins (create it if it doesnt exist)
or put it in /usr/lib/mozilla-<version>/plugins to install it system wide

Hello Demonbane, Thanks for the info much appreciated, I have checked the mozilla
plug-ins and it is now listed and working, Thanks again, I will eventually get my head
round this, at the moment it is so different from windows.

You're welcome :-) yea Linux is different, it is confusing at start, but eventually everything will work out as long as you're willing to put some effort into it.

ftlonger: in Konqueror properties there's a plugins section where you can choose directories to scan for plugins, by default it has various mozilla/netscape plugin directories, therefore all you need to do is extract the mozilla flash plugin into one of them and it should work.
