There already are some files on the stick. Is that unacceptable?

I searched for the term free webspace yahoo, but it seems that only turns up free websites. I don't want a website, am I correct?

My stick is a two GB, with 1.9 GB actually showing as capacity.

Will that be enough for the installation?

Yes it will be enough, but it will (normaly) be completely overwritten by the creator for the bootdevice.

I have Yahoo email also, after some checking it seems that Yahoo is opposed to users applying their free email capacity to store data, and they are actively engaged in stopping that.

Looks like I'll have to invest a few bucks in another stick.

Hello doctorpatil,

you may use the sudo command,
Code:
sudo cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
this will ask you for your userpassword. If you know the rootpassword for the system the command
Code:
su -c "cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins"
will also work and ask for the rootpassword. In this case you'll have to quote the command!

Unhappy am I nearly there?

Hi, sorry to re-open new wounds here but I've followed this thread intently and I'm still struggling to install Flash 11.

(text from two terminals) ~

[user@localhost plugins]$ ls -lh libflashplayer.so

ls: cannot access libflashplayer.so: No such file or directory

[user@localhost plugins]$


[user@localhost install_flash_player_11_linux.i386]$ mv libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

mv: cannot create regular file `/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so': Permission denied

[user@localhost install_flash_player_11_linux.i386

So, following the thread I've managed to deleted the old file but it won't create the new file. I got so far as to read this...

Any help from here would be much appreciated.

"pemission denied" is telling you that you don't have the priveledges in place
"$" you're operating as normal user.
"$ sudo mv [from directory] [to directory]
sudo if setup giving temporary root priviledges.
1 question though what OS are you using? Because you can install using package manager of your distro if you enabled repository.

Hi Eddy,

I don't follow. The "$" thing doesn't mean anything to me. I followed the instructions where Markush gave to mjpeace because the poster seemed to have the same problems as I do replacing the libflashplayer.so file.

So what commands should I use?

It's Linpus Lite on an Acer One (I know the ideal is to change the OS, but it's my wife's netbook and she likes it).

The $ means the prompt.

Open a terminal and execute
Code:
sudo mv libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
you will be asked for your password.

Thanks for that markush, the file moved ok and I now have flash 11 installed.

Have to say, the only reason for updating Flash was because pages containing .swf files were taking a lifetime to download. I thought it was because the add-on was out of date. When I now visit, say, the BBC News website for a video, it not only still takes an age to complete the page but no video is actually visible .

Should I begin to assume that Firefox 8.0 for Linpus Lite simply doesn't work with Flash, or is there more to this installation than just adding the file to the right folder?

Note that when I extract the downloaded Flash files I get an error message. It relates to images that won't overwrite existing ones. I didn't think it would make a difference to the install. Is this right?
