Smile Flashplayer


Hi All, I have read a post about flashplayer, is it available as a Deb package please?

If not as a package I guess I'll get it from the Adobe site, anyone know how to install it on a Deb 4.0 system?

Many thanks for help,
Greeb

Smile O.K. But...

Thanks for this, it worked fine until i got to the line

mv install_flash_player_9_linux/flashplayer.xpt install_flash_player_9_linux/libflashplayer.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/

which failed with

mv: cannot stat `install_flash_player_9_linux/flashplayer.xpt': No such file or directory
mv: cannot stat `install_flash_player_9_linux/libflashplayer.so': No such file or directory
paul@debian:~$


My Linux knowledge of commands isn't good enough to know what's happened here - does the command have too many spaces in it? What does ~ mean in this context? was i supposed to replace the ~ with something?

Thanks for any help.

Just do:
mv install_flash_player_9_linux/libflashplayer.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/
The xpt file is missing because adobe changed the installer. Scroll down and read comments on previous link.
If it doesn't work, post output of "ls -l" in current directory. Also "ls -l install_flash_player_9_linux".

Do any of you have a problem with Flash video being slow and choppy? I have Debian running on my Athlon desktop with an NVidia video adapter and 640 megabytes of RAM and Flash video is very choppy. I also have Debian running on a Pentium III notebook with an ATI video adapter and 256 megabytes of RAM and Flash video is normal.
