Hi Ron...

Welcome to the forum

If you are referring to OpenSUSE, does this page help?

Regards...

OpenSUSE and SELD/S do things rather DIFFERENTLY from other rpm based systems

basically you really CAN NOT!!! use redhat( centOS) or fedora guides


USE!!! the suse wiki and docs and planetsuse

on the Novell site
-- the old docs--
http://doc.opensuse.org/
-- current --
https://activedoc.opensuse.org/

the wiki ( English language )
https://en.opensuse.org/Portalocumentation

the how to's
https://en.opensuse.org/Category:SDB:HOWTOs

planet suse
http://planet.opensuse.org/global/

the third party all in one ( still need packman )
" THe Opensuse Build Service"
https://build.opensuse.org/


package search in the OBS
http://software.opensuse.org/search

SUSE 13.2 and Firefox with Adobe Flash

SUSE 13.2 and Firefox with Adobe Flash:
Linux SUSE 13.2 and Firefox 38.0.01 will not work with Adobe Flash.
Chrome or Chromium are fully supported and work fine.
On occasion I use Chromium for Adobe Flash videos.

Just another slight to the Linux users community by the established big guys.

I'd go to the Adobe web site and get the tar file. It should be:

install_flash_player_11_linux.i386.tar.gz (32 bit)
install_flash_player_11_linux.x86_64.tar.gz (64 bit)

Get the one you need, and download it to where you download your files, so cd there

Firefox expects its plug-ins to be in: /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins regardless of where Firefox actually is, or whether it's the 32 bit version (often placed in /usr/lib) or the 64 bit version (in /usr/lib64)

As root:

# mkdir -pv /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
# tar xvzf install_flash_player_11*.tar.gz
# cp -v libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

Start Firefox, and you should be good to go. Tools->Addons->Plugins should show its presence.
