LXer: How to Install Adobe Flash in Debian Etch/Lenny/Sid

Published at LXer:

In this tutorial we will see how to install Adobe Flash in Debian Etch/Lenny/Sid. Adobe Flash (previously called "Macromedia Flash"') is a multimedia platform created by Macromedia and currently developed and distributed by Adobe Systems. Since its introduction in 1996, Flash has become a popular method for adding animation and interactivity to web pages; Flash is commonly used to create animation, advertisements, and various web page components, to integrate video into web pages, and more recently, to develop rich Internet applications.

If all else fails, download install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz from Adobe, decompress, cd to resulting directory, then run as root:
Tell it to install in /usr/lib/iceweasel (and/or where ever else you want).
Works for me.
