To install the Flash Player plug-in for Linux via an install script, follow the directions below. Note: This installer is script-based and cannot be run from a GUI.

1. Download and uncompress install_flash_player_7_linux.tar.gz.
2. After uncompressing the file, a directory called install_flash_player_7_linux is created. Navigate to this directory.
3. From the command line, type ./flashplayer-installer to run the installer. The installer will instruct you to shut down your browser(s).
4. Once the installation is complete, the plug-in will be installed in your Mozilla browser. To verify, choose Help > About Plug-ins from the browser's menu.

To manually install the plug-in for Linux, copy the following files to your browser's plugins folder:

* libflashplayer.so
* flashplayer.xpt
