Installing tar.gz of Adobe flash player on Laughlin


Hi!

When I untar the install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz it has usr folder and shared library libflashplayer.so so only I have to do is just to copy the usr folder on /usr and add libflashplayer.so on which location? on /lib?

Thanks for ur cooperation

Cheers,

Steffen

Yah!

I tried installing by rpm but it didn't work, and then uncompressed the tar.gz and copied the lib file on /lib and on /usr/lib and then the /usr folder on /usr and on /usr/local/share and then my flash worked for youtube and facebook games. Didn't know that only searching application directory works so I copied the files through all possible locations and to me it worked on /usr/local/share

My advice is that the tar.gz is the best way to install linux applications as far as the linux is concerned

Cheers

Steffen

on fedora
do not use the tarbal
reinstall flash using yum

to manually install the tarball is a" PAIN IN THE .... "

you need to edit "alternitaves"
you need to manually remove links
you need to manually add new links
you need to manually copy/paste
--- and do that FOR EVERY UPDATE ---

Code:
su -
yum reinstall flash
you might want to have a look at mjm's help guide
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mj...f15.html#flash

but installing the 64 bit flash on a 64 bit FF on a 64 bit fedora
IS DIFFERENT
you will need to remove the npwrapper.so links and redirects
