Question How to run flashplayer in Live CD like Opensuse


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.
Here: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
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
common file.
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.
hth any

You can build a custom cd at SuseStudio if you want. If not already a choice you should be able to add it to the build.

I am using Opensuse LiveCD now,
I unzip the Seamonkey tarball in a thumbdrive,
open terminal and go to that folder, type ./seamonkey
it prompts me "access denied".

Can I run seamonkey or firefox from a folder?

In ubuntu, I can do it.

Please don't hijack somebody else's thread with a question that is completely unrelated to the current topic.

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.

I am running with LiveCd, how could I copy files into "local filesystem"? It is the non-rewritable CD, right?

In a live CD, the "local filesystem" would be located in RAM. Just copy it to your home directory and run it from there.

I said to use SuseStudio and create your own live cd. Is there a reason you didn't try it and said that OpenSuse doesn't have it?

Or you can use LPS linux, it has flash installed.

Post the output of "ls -l" in the directory in which you're trying to run ./seamonkey.
