You could just use Google Chrome which has its own implementation of Flash installed.It can be made to work on Chromium too. The Linux version of Flash has been abandoned by Adobe, I believe.

The problem, however, is frustrating for you. I would reverse out any changes you have made and simply install the applicable version of Alienbob's package.

don't mixed up between AlienBOB's package with flash package from Adobe
Install only one of them, since both contains the same file you need
once you placed the file in /usr/lib{64}/mozilla/plugins, you don't need to installpkg anything anymore, since that single file is the plugin. You only need to restart your Firefox and it should work normally

Not really abandoned, but they will only update it for security fixed, no more new features as in Windows version
more like going into maintenance release only

The slackbuild works fine for me. Just install it, then start konqueror and go to settings -> configure konqueror -> plugins item -> plugins tab -> scan for plugins.

I did exactly as you have and for some reason it is not working.
I'll try and see if the Mozilla browser has the plug in and works.

Please give us the listing of the /usr/mozilla/plugins directory. The plugins in there will be loaded. If there is no plugin file there, it will not be loaded by the browser. Nothing magical about Linux and plugins.

Ok guys I launched the Mozilla browser and tried to play a you tube video; no dice.

The only other thing that I did before I installed the "flashplayer-plugin-11.2.202.356-x86_64-1alien.txz" was I used the terminal to cp "libflahplayer.so" into the /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins directory.

The package was installed here's the screen shot showing that it's so-

Here's a screenshot of my plugins directory-
http://s1052.photobucket.com/user/Ul...inDir.png.html

Should I delete one of those files in my plugins directory?

It apparently doesn't exist-
Code:
bash-4.3$ cat /usr/mozilla/plugins
cat: /usr/mozilla/plugins: No such file or directory
What do I need to do? Create that file and place "libflashplayer.so" as an argument in the new file?

cat /usr/mozilla/plugins
Why?

Firefox plugins are in

Code:
usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
or

Code:
/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins
Just depends on having Slackware64 or Slackware32, but I don't have to say that, right?

Code:
ls /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/*
/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/gecko-mediaplayer-dvx.so
/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/gecko-mediaplayer-qt.so
/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/gecko-mediaplayer-rm.so
/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/gecko-mediaplayer-wmp.so
/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/gecko-mediaplayer.so
/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/skypebuttons.so

It's now over 8 hours since Willy told you to copy the 64-bit flash plugin to /usr/lib64 yet here you are, still refusing to do so?

Why?

I install 64 bit-

Code:
bash-4.3$ cat /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
cat: /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins: Is a directory
bash-4.3$ cat /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins
cat: /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins: Is a directory
Copy those files that you posted into that directory? Use Nano to do that?
I have trouble understanding. I have a disability-
