Installing flash player on Slackware 13.37 x64?


Does anyone have instructions on how to do this?

I don't seem to have .mozilla/plugins. I downloaded the .so for x64 from the adobe web site. Is there a different directory for plug-ins on FireFox 6?

Trying to install it manually got me nowhere, but I installed using the slackbuild here at slackbuilds.org and it worked flawlessly. Might want to do this particular slackbuild manually though, since there are different binaries for 32 and 64 bit.

flash player x64

The link to the source code is quite broken. Which one am I supposed to download for x64?

Just create the plugins directory and copy libflashplayer.so into it. Type 'about:config' in the address bar to verify your browser loads it.

I have tried that method many times on a few different distributions and it never has worked for me. I tried it again just now and got no love from the .so file.
