How to run flashplayer in Live CD like Opensuse?
I click the Addons in Firefox, there is no flash player.
But I only want to run Opensuse Live CD, how can I install the flashplayer while running in Live mode?
Usually the latest Live CD has the flashplayer installed.
If you want to install it just download from site.
select tar gunzip then untar this on the command line(you should know how).
Untarring should install in the /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
If you want to remaster check out this site: http://lizards.opensuse.org/2008/10/...-based-distro/
to make the plugin permanent.
If this is to much work either find the latest live CD on Suse or other distros.
Or install every time after you bootup. BTW, on some live CDs you can make additional
boot installing plugin from flash or HHD.
Please don't hijack somebody else's thread with a question that is completely unrelated to the current topic.

Can I run seamonkey or firefox from a folder?
In ubuntu, I can do it.
The thumbdrive was likely mounted with noexec, which prevents you from executing files directly from the thumbdrive. You can either remount without noexec, or you can copy the directory onto the local filesystem and run it there.
