Macromedia Flash Player 7 problem


hi all,
I am trying to install macromedia flash player 7 on mandrake 10.1 and i get to the point where is asks me to enter the installation path of my browser (mozilla). I enter usr/lib/mozilla, which is the path and it says WARNING: Please enter a valid installation path.

Im not sure what else the installation path could be.

thanks for your help

you don't really need to use the installer...

just put the libflashplayer.so and flashplayer.xpt files in your plugins directory...

i'm not sure about mandrake, but in slackware and in suse it's a hidden folder in your home directory. open up konqueror and navagate to your home folder, then click "view" and "show hidden files" and you should see a .mozilla folder. open that, and you'll see the plugins folder.
