Flash Player

How can I install the Flash Player?? So far I downloaded the files from macromedia and followed their instructions. I extracted the files, then I ran in terminal ./flashplayer-installer, the installation started and everything seemed to work fine. but for some reason, I still don't have the flash-player installed in mozilla.

any ideas??

well you could install it manually. just take the *.xpt file and the *.class file from the tarball, copy them and paste them into your mozilla plugins folder.

my guess is you didn't tell the installer to install it into mozilla. the installer asks for a plugins path, you give it one, it installs, installer asks for another plugins path, etc... my guess is you installed it in another browser and then exited before giving it the path to the mozilla plugins folder. just a guess.
