Flash player update?


Hey, I used slackpkg to update Firefox to 5.0.1 and lost my flash player plugin in the process. I've searched the repo and see nothing for installing flash back into Firefox. Anyone know if there is a way to fix the plugin for my browser through slackpkg or am I going to have to install it directly?

I believe the flash plugin is available with the stock Slackware only for 64 bit systems. For 32 bit systems use the package at slackbuilds.org.

The conventional location for the plugin is /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so.

On Slackware64 13.1 I installed 11.0.1 Beta 1 (11.0.1.60) direct; it works under Opera but not under Firefox 3.6.19. The locations of libflashplayer.so are /usr/lib64/firefox-3.6.19/plugins/ and /usr/lib64/seamonkey/plugins/
