Just do this:
Code:
tar -C ~/.mozilla/plugins/ -xvzf `ls -R libflashplayer*64*`
if the above command found a result, if not you don't seem to have the file.

Is it possible that rather than downloading the *tar.gz file you are opening it which is putting the libflashplayer.so file in your directory?
Code:
file ~/Downloads/libflashplayer.so
If it's 64bit then just
Code:
cp ~/Downloads/libflashplayer.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/

I have the tar.gz package, as well as the libflashplayer.so file in the downloads folder. And somehow the command to find it didn't find anything.

What is the name of your tar.gz file?

That's the 32 bit file is why. For some reason when I pasted the link it didn't paste the 64 bit link.

The right dowload is.

http://download.macromedia.com/pub/l...6_64.so.tar.gz

That's why the command didn't work, they have different names.

I should have just done it all in the shell:
Code:
wget http://download.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashplayer10/libflashplayer-10.0.45.2.linux-x86_64.so.tar.gz && tar -C ~/.mozilla/plugins -xvzf libflash*64*
which downloads it and extracts it directly to where it needs to go. My apologies for the bad link.
