Gotchas are
1. that you need a 32 bit browser and plugin, or 64 bit browser & plugiun, not any mix of 32/64 bit combinations.
2. That you need the latest version or sites complain and the browser disables it :-//.

That said I just copy the plugin (libflashplayer.so) to global plugins directoey (/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/ on Slackware) and it works there after you restart firefox.

go to the adobe site
grab the "rpm for other linux"
https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
click download

a pop up will popup asking to INSTALL using "apper"
or
save

select INSTALL

now if you installed the firefox from the mozilla site you will need to link the plugin to the install folder you created for the manual install of firefox

if suse default
the plugin "should" be auto found

then restart firefox and type into the address bar
Code:
about:plugins
and look , it should be there

All the answers given so far seem overly complex given that Flash can be installed from the openSUSE 13.2 repos.

Code:
$ zypper info flash-player
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...


Information for package flash-player:
-------------------------------------
Repository: openSUSE-13.2-Update-Non-Oss
Name: flash-player
Version: 11.2.202.460-2.51.1
Arch: x86_64
Vendor: openSUSE
Installed: Yes
Status: out-of-date (version 11.2.202.457-2.48.1 installed)
Installed Size: 20.9 MiB
Summary: Adobe Flash Plugin and Standalone Player
Description: 
  This package contains Adobe's Flash Plugin for the supported Web
  browsers in addition to a standalone flash player application.
$
Just install the flash-player package.


What have you done so far?

What I found was

File: libflashplayer-dont-use.so
Path: /usr/lib/browser-plugins/libflashplayer-dont-use.so
Version: 11.2.202.460
State: Enabled
Shockwave Flash 11.2 r202

any idea how to correct this. This is what it is telling it to use libfreshwrapper-pepperflash.so -> /usr/lib/freshplayerpluginlibfreshwrapper-pepperflash.so

I'm not certain about SUSE but Firefox tends to balk unless you get the Adobe repo plugin and install from their source. I know they have a yum repo, I would hope Adobe has an atp repo as well. Check the website.

suse dose not use " yum "
they use "zypper"

so
install using zypper or the adobe site

mind you
Adobe NO LONGER IS SUPPORTING LINUX !
the Linux version is VERY VERY VERY OUT OF DATE!!!!

only the MICROSOFT!!! version is current


for some sites you NEED!!!!! to use Microsoft OS running the MICROSOFT plugin

Do you have /usr/lib/ mozilla/plugins directory. I was only having problems with hulu videos, someone here told me to create a link from /usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree/libflashplayer.so to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. So my command appeared as
Quote:
ln -s /usr/lib/flashplugi-nonfree/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

this is the 32 bit version
/usr/lib/flashplugi-nonfree/libflashplayer.so

mind you the WINE / IE / hulu solution is 32 bit only

what I have done is install Fresh Player and at least FF now runs the games, some idiosyncrasies but playable. going to see if it will work in Chrome, Pepperflash is not the best.


Thank you all for your help and suggestions.
