What is the exact error you get about the permissions?

Check to see if you have a .mozilla/plugins directory in your home directory with
Code:
ls -a ~/.mozilla
as your regular user. If so copy the file there instead. If you don't have that directory make it with
Code:
mkdir ~/.mozilla/plugins
and then copy it there. You shouldn't have any problems writing to your home directory.

I personally can't replicate the error message you are getting on my own machine, either by trying to copy a file to root's home directory or copying a file that doesn't even exist.

Will this work in 64-bit as well as 32-bit?

The output of the first command is "appreg extensions firefox plugins", with the last three in blue.

If you have a 64 bit browser installed you'd need the 64 bit flash plugin which is different that the link I posted. Google "64 flash linux prerelease" to get the file. 64 bit flash for linux isn't officially released yet. You may have a 32 bit browser installed though. To find out do [CODE]sudo file `locate firefox-bin`[CODE]. For instance on my 32 bit machine I get
Quote:
root@dtest:/home/dtest# file `locate firefox-bin`
/usr/lib/firefox-3.6.3/firefox-bin: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped
NOTE: Those are backtics, not apostrophes!

Those blue ones are directories. It means you have a .mozilla/plugins directory. You can just put the file there as mentioned above.

It would appear I have the 64 bit firefox.

Now after I've googled and downloaded the .tar file, what do I do to install it?

dylan@dylan-desktop:~$ tar -C ~/.mozilla/plugins/ -xvzf libflashplayer*64*
tar: libflashplayer*64*: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors


That was the output.

Were you in the directory where you downloaded the file? Try
Code:
cd ~/Downloads
and then the above command assuming that you download your files to /home/YOURUSER/Downloads.

Tried it again from the downloads folder, which is where I download stuff too. Same result.
