Linpus--found mozilla plugins folder, copied libflashplayer.so there, still no update


It turned out that the mozilla plugins folder is called "ln7gsmwv.default" on my machine. I copied libflashplayer.so from flashplayer 10 in Downloads to this folder, using the right-click menu.

These steps were taken under the advice of several members, and I thank them for getting me this far.

However, after restarting Firefox, and checking my flashplayer version at:

http://duber.com/LetsTalk/playerCheck.html

I still have version 9.

Do I have any remaining options?

Thanks.

You'll need to make a symbolic link (as root) in the /etc/alternatives/ directory that refers back to the libflashplayer.so file.

Somewhat like this:-

Code:

sudo ln -s libflashplayer.so /etc/alternatives/libflashplayer.so

If the non-free flash was installed by default from the repositories, that will first need to be removed with synaptic.

You say "somewhat". Is the code given exactly as it should be entered? I don't know what /etc/alternatives/ directory is.

What does "non-free flash" mean? What is "installed by default?" What are the "repositories"? What is "synaptic" and how can it be used to remove something?
