flash-player


I use slack 13.1 64 bits on my intel i7 machine. That is I can't find a flash-player plugin that works on all browsers. The firefox crashes on open. The release of adobe 64 bits plugin simply doesn't work on any browser. I use slack 13.1 64 plus kde. Anyone knows some that works?
thanks, Carlos.

Adobe had withdrawn their 64 bit flash player several weeks ago. I installed their 32 bit player, and finally got it to work. I just checked here -->http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

and they have a 'Preview' 64 bit flash player available. You can give it a try.

I've already done, adobe's player 64 or 32 bits doesn't work on slack 64 13.1 + kde + firefox or konqueror. Does anybody works with slack 64 13.1 plus kde?
thanks

Get the package from here:

Then, as root,run:
Code:
installpkg flashplayer-plugin-10.091510-x86_64-1.txz

Please take the time to post the fix, for others benefit. Also if you could mark the thread 'solved'.
