Is there a way to get Adobe flash 11.6 or greater in Linux?
I have looked everywhere, but it seems like Adobe is giving Linux the finger for some reason. Is there a way to make the one for Mac work for Linux? I tried to open a .dmg file of 11.9 and failed. If anyone knows anything about this, please post a comment.
There are many game on FB that I cannot play because of this problem. And I fear it will only get worse in the future.
@Jamison Thank you for the link, but it took me to Adobe's download area where there is nothing greater than 11.2 for Linux. Would it be possible to install windows flash with wine and use Firefox with that flash installed?
I'm having problems getting Wine setup right tried three ways now (plus not getting Firefox to run both in and out of Wine) for X
...@...:~$ uname -a
Linux debian 3.10-3-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.10.11-1 (2013-09-10) x86_64 GNU/Linux
XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /home/.../firefox/libxul.so:
libdbus-glib-1.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Couldn't load XPCOM.
also not use to missing winetricks(from apt) still working on this tho (probably will try building winetricks next, it use to work for me) . . . putting together a new thread for any issues I can or can't "solve" and will post a link within a week or so.

I tried Wine with Firefox 5 (the newest one available in Wine) and installed adobe flash through the browser and the browser stopped working. Completely froze up. Yet before I installed the flash plugin it was fine. It's ridiculous! Adobe is really trying to burn Linux and maybe Firefox and Opera too. I'm very suspicious of their reasoning for cutting off Linux users. I'm giving up on any hope of getting firefox to ever run a current flash player again. I wish all the FB games were HTML5. Even Hulu.com uses HTML5, and it's great! No crashes.
I hate Chrome! When I open up a game, it takes 5-8 minutes before my desktop unfreezes and I can actually play... or do anything else. Why in the world would Adobe make that crap browser their go-to browser? it's the worst one out there.
