Install of Flash Player 9 for Linux on Ubuntu:

Filed under: Kubuntu, Tuxicity, Ubuntu — tuxicity @ 8:01 am

I downloaded the last stable Flash Player 9
Removed the Ubuntu package:

sudo apt-get remove flashplugin-nonfree

If you installed flash in another way, just make sure the old package is being removed.

Unpack the install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz with nautilus; (right-klick, extract here..)
then in terminal:

cd /path/to//install_flash_player_9_linux/

I am installing it locally (not using sudo) for Firefox,so I can easily remove it when the official Ubuntu package comes out:


this is what you see with a local firefox install:

tuxi[install_flash_player_9_linux]$ ./flashplayer-installer
