installing flash (mandrake,gnome)


when i surf the net using epiphany browser (gnome) i can't see flash. moreover, i am really new to linux (mandrake 10), thus, i don't have any idea how to install the flash plugin in order to see flash during the time i use epiphany.

there is a mandrake rpm on this page
download and install it

then
open the browser and type
aboutCOLONplugins
(had to type it like that to avoid the page thinking that COLONp was supposed to be a smiley face)
into the address bar to make sure it's found the flash plugin

I think you'd better install firefox, and the browser will install flash plugin easily.

either double click on the file
or
from the command line as root

rpm -ivh name.of.file

(this supposes you are in the same dir as the rpm
if not,

rpm -ivh /path/to/&/name.of.file.rpm
