Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have downloaded the latest flashplayer and followed the instructions to install (copied libflashplayer.so to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins, and also all other files in corresponding locations). When I access pages with flash in Google Chrome it works but same pages don't work in Firefox. When I check adobe site it says firefox has correctly installed flash but when I check the ad-ons it says it's outdated. What can be done?
Thank you for still trying to help me... I do not run 64 bit..
I did check right now the version and to my surprise I found (yesterday was not like that) that after installing the latest Flash yesterday I actually had 2 Shockwave Flash versions enabled:
Shockwave Flash 10.1 r999 Gnash 0.8.8 the GNU SWF Player
Shockwave Flash 10.3 r183
I disabled the 10.1 r999 Gnash... and now YouTube videos work but still Facebook games don't load and also if I go google maps it would not display images from street level (still an improvement as YouTube works now
Sorry Stefan. I don't use Facebook and know nothing about it so I can't help you there. FYI, there is a later version of Shockwave Flash 11.0 d1 (I'm using a 64bit version) but I have no idea if that will help you or not. You could always try it.
I just installed Shockwave Flash 11.0 d1 (32 bit) in my AntiX 11 install. I guess it depends on your distro where libflashplayer.so goes.
In my /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins folder there is a flash-mozilla.so symlink that points to /usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree folder where libflashplayer.so actually sits where Iceape browser and Opera Browser can pick it up. But like I said. Depends on Distro for file location sometimes.
Edit. Noticed your Debian 4 in profile. Mine is
$ lsb_release -a
