Macromedia Flash


I downloaded Macromedia Flash for Linux. I extracted the files to a directory in my user dir ( /home/selos/downloaded/flash/install_flash_player_6_linux ). In the readme it says to change into this dir and run the flashplayer-installer.. well this works, he starts it.. but when he asks me to type in the directory of mozilla ( which is in /usr/lib/mozilla ) it says:

No valid install path: /home/selos/downloaded/flash/install_flash_player_6_linux/usr/lib/mozilla !

i tried to copy all the files to the /-Directory but even there it does not accept the path to mozilla

You need to include the entire filename. Example, in Mandrake on my comp, it is /usr/lib/mozilla-1.3

Why don't you try the RPM? It will allow you to browse to the mozilla folder. They have one for your distro.

Is the mozilla plugin folder IN the directory you are trying to install it to? Thats the only other thing I can think of.

Hi,

I have the same problem. Have you been able to install the
Flash plugin? If so, how did you do that?
Thanks.
Jorge.
