Update: I have recently partitioned HD, on an IBM Thinkpad 600X, and installed Damn Small Linux 4.4.10 (DSL) onto my computer. Next, I went to a website, using Firefox [Bon Echo] which required Adobe Flash Player. So I ended up doing two things.
1. First, I downloaded the Adobe Flash Player 10 .tar file. Then I extracted the libflashplayer.so file. Lastly, I put that file into the Firefox plugin folder [ /opt/.firefox_plugins]. When I went back to the website there was no difference.
2. Went back to the website and noticed this time that a drop-down menu appeared and said that I was missing plug-ins for the site. I clicked on "Install Missing Plug-in". Process went step-by-step where I downloaded and installed the necessary files but in a much more user friendly fashion. At the end, it said that Firefox needed to be restarted for plug-in to take affect. I restarted computer and went back to that website but same message appeared that stated I needed to install the missing adobe flash player plug-in.
Also to note, after I restarted the computer, I went back to the Firefox plugin folder and looked for the original .so file I had put in manually. The file was no longer there. I also noticed that some other files I had downloaded, which were on the Desktop, were no longer there either.
I am thinking that everytime I restart the computer, my changes are nullified. I am confused by this since I am no longer running off the LiveCD but running off an installed version of DSL.
Any thoughts, suggestions??
Other than that, I hope that this message finds you all well and in very good spirits. Looking forward to hearing from you all about this obstacle.
With much respect and thanks,
