sorry. if you downloaded the source which ends with .tar.gz
the best thing for you to do is right click on the file and choose extract here. then open that folder and right click again and choose open terminal and then type ./flashplayer-installer

ps: hope this helps

open the folder and right click inside that folder and it has to say (open terminal here)

ps:what distro are you using?

EXAMPLE
also you can do this
1- open terminal from the menu
2- if the folder is on /home/user/flash-player
3- type cd /home/user/flash-player then enter
4- then type: ./flashplayer-installer
