Flash Player Slack64


Ok downloaded the SlackBuild script to install flash. I download the the files to go with it and ran the script. The script creates a .tgz in my tmp folder and I install it. After I install it I close out of my browser and re-open to check flash and every website I goto tells me flash is not installed I am a little confoobared with this?

Don't forget when building SlackBuilds for Slack64 you must use the prefix ARCH=x86_64 prior to ./ :

Code:
# ARCH=x86_64 ./<your_app>.SlackBuild
