cannot install flash plug in


i've donwloaded the flas plug-in and when i try to install it, it asks me for the path of mozilla, which is /bin/lib/mozilla. when i type that in, it says that it is an invalid path. I know it's valid because i've used the same to install the java script plug-in. what am i doing wrong?

thanx

It is probably /usr/lib/mozilla, not /bin/lib/mozilla.

You can do a search all over the place for it. For crying out loud, searchin' is so awesome I can feel the computin' happenin' all ova the place.

Anyway, mine was installed in /usr/lib/mozilla, so I'm not sure where it would be other than that.

Or /usr/lib/mozilla-1.4/. Change the 1.4 to the correct number for your version of mozilla.

You are welcome
Another tip of you sometime downloads firefox then you need the plugins for it.

just do copy the plugins from /usr/lib/mozilla-1.4.1/plugins to the firefox plugins directory it will work.

that is what I do today after dowloading firefox
