flahplayer using opera in debian etch how to activate


I cannot get flashplayer to work in any browser iceweasel, Epiphany or Opera. I think I hav most sucess with opera. I have down loaded the Linux version but I beleive the problem is where to put libflashplayer.so I have the following directories home/jhgf/.opera /usr/lib/opera/plugins /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins putting the libflashplayer in any of these does not seem to work. The homejhgf/.opera plugins.ini has the paths usr/lib/opera/plugins=1
/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins=1
The usr/share/opera/ini/pluginpath.ini has much more information on all sorts of software eg realplayer but for flasplayer has the following:
/usr/lib/flash-plugin=1
/usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree=1

can anyone help

Linux newbie 1 month.

Ok,so it's 32 bit.
We can do it two ways,you can download the tar.gz package and follow these instructions:
Bear in mind this is for iceweasel.

Quote:
Installation instructions for tar.gz

1. Click the download link to begin installation. A dialog box will appear asking you where to save the file.
2. Save the .tar.gz file to your desktop and wait for the file to download completely.
3. Unpackage the file. A directory called install_flash_player_10_linux will be created.
4. In terminal, navigate to this directory and type ./flashplayer-installer to run the installer. Click Enter. The installer will instruct you to shut down your browser(s).
5. Once the installation is complete, the plug-in will be installed in your Mozilla browser. To verify, launch Mozilla and choose Help > About Plug-ins from the browser menu.
Or alternatively you can add the Debian multimedia repository to your apt sources.
Then simply install it with aptitude install flashplayer-mozilla

The choice is yours.
Post back if you need more help.

Regards.
The trooper.
