Installing Adobe Flash Player on Slackware!
 
Hello ladies and gentlemens! I'm proud to tell you that i finished my SLACKWARE installation. But now I can't install Flashplayer. I googled it, but nothing worked. Also i tried this:
Code:

root@Local:/usr/local/src# cp -v libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/firefox-4.0/plugins
`libflashplayer.so' -> `/usr/lib/firefox-4.0/plugins'
root@Local:/usr/local/src#

But it's same!

Thank you!

Congratulations on your new installation:)

You don't need to install it manually.
Just grab the slackbuild from the /extra directory (either on your installation DVD or online).

Darkizzwow 10-15-2011 08:59 AM

Thanks for your fast reply, I've entered my extra directory but there's no file named slackbuild here.

"Slackbuilds" are installation scripts for particular programs.


/extra should contain a file called flashplayer-plugin.

1. copy it somewhere in your home directory.
2. Give it permissions to be executed: chmod +x flashplayer-plugin
3. Run it: ./flashplayer-plugin


Which Slackware version have you installed?

This link is for /extra in Slackware 13.37
http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/f...ackware-13.37/

and that for Slackware64 13.37
http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/f...4-13.37/extra/

Hi,

Look at Alien_Bob's: http://slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/flashplayer-plugin/ SlackBuild package.

onebuck 10-15-2011 09:13 AM

Look at the 'SlackBuild Usage HOWTO'
:hattip:

Darkizzwow 10-15-2011 10:11 AM

@onebuck, I've followed your link, and now whenever loading any page on Mozilla it freezes up, help me :S
Here's output btw:

Code:

root@Local:/home/darkizzwow/flash-player-plugin# ./flash-player-plugin.SlackBuild

Slackware package maker, version 3.14159.

Searching for symbolic links:
usr/share/pixmaps/flash-player-properties.png -> ../icons/hicolor/48x48/apps/flash-player-properties.png

Making symbolic link creation script:
( cd usr/share/pixmaps ; rm -rf flash-player-properties.png )
( cd usr/share/pixmaps ; ln -sf ../icons/hicolor/48x48/apps/flash-player-properties.png flash-player-properties.png )

Unless your existing installation script already contains the code
to create these links, you should append these lines to your existing
install script. Now's your chance. :^)

Would you like to add this stuff to the existing install script and
remove the symbolic links ([y]es, [n]o)? y


Removing symbolic links:
removed `./usr/share/pixmaps/flash-player-properties.png'

Updating your ./install/doinst.sh (prepending symlinks)...

This next step is optional - you can set the directories in your package
to some sane permissions. If any of the directories in your package have
special permissions, then DO NOT reset them here!

Would you like to reset all directory permissions to 755 (drwxr-xr-x) and
directory ownerships to root.root ([y]es, [n]o)? n

Judging by the output that you provided, the flash plugin should be now installed. Have you tried it? Does it work?

Darkizzwow 10-15-2011 10:36 AM

Any page which have Flash player components is freezing firefox. And then i must use killall firefox-bin :S

Darkizzwow 10-15-2011 10:58 AM

Oh great ! I did it , the problem was old flash player in PLUGINS folder. So i reinstalled firefox and everything is fine now! thank you guys!

sycamorex 10-15-2011 10:58 AM

Have you removed any traces of your initial flash installation?
