Adobe Flash Player 10 on Debian.


I would like to install Adobe Flash Player 10 as Swfdec annoys me.

I have searched a lot on Google, but not really understand how what I should do. Some will help?

I am running with Debian 5.0 and kernel 2.6.26-1-686. I use Iceweasel as "default" browser.

.deb is best for Debian.

Hi Repo,
One quick question: how do you know which version the package will download from Adobe? In the description it says:
Quote:
Description: Adobe Flash Player - browser plugin
This package will download the Flash Player from Adobe.
but nowhere in the description does it tell you what version of the flash plugin it will download. The package version is 1:2.5 which is not very informative.
Thanks,
jdk

Thanks CE,
I guess you found out the version only after installing the package, is that correct?
cheers,

Now I switched back to Ubuntu, because there were some things about Debian which I do not like.

I use the same version of Flash Player as I did in Debian, the version 10.0.15.3.

The problem is now that some sites which make use of Flash, not working properly. For example www.jango.com. There is the player up to 10 min. to respond when I try to play a song.
Normal pages loaded quickly and without problems, other sites with Flash also works, so what is the problem caused?

- At my school, I also use www.jango.com and using the Windows version of Flash 9, there it works without problems.
I had Ubuntu 8.10 with the same flash version before I tried to use Debian, and it worked fine.

The icons in the GNOME panel, icon for Evolution, which Ubuntu has a nicer one.
Moreover, I could not figure out the Debian way to manage CPU frequency on. Ubuntu used the Powernowd daemon, which is less complicated.

Menus in main menu was placed in a completely different place, which I was not quite accustomed to. I could not figure out to put them somewhere else by using the Edit Menu

apt-get install powernowd

Good luck with Ubuntu, let us know how it upgrades to the next release.

I already have Powernowd. It's installed by default on the Live-CD.
