How to get Flash to work in BT5 R3

So… I’m guessing this is supposed to work out of the box because it worked for Token’s build.

This is what I did to get it to work..

1. Download the flash player from adobe. I had to use 10.3 because for some reason the newest would not work.

A. Here is the link to the old players there is a ton ( http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/archived-flash-player-versions.html ) 

2. make a directory for the file and mv the tar file to that directory

A. mkdir flash

B. mv (tar file) flash/

3. extract the file 

A. tar xvzf (the tar file here) 

4. Now copy the libflashplugin.so to the plugins directory and you may have to create it so .. create it

A. cd /.~mozilla

B. mkdir plugins

C. cp -f libflashplugin.so /.~mozilla/plugins

Now restart your machine and that should work…

if not just to be safe there are other locations that you can put the file in

/usr/lib/firefox/plugins

/usr/lib64/firefox/plugins

/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins

 

I understand this isn’t the neatest of instruction so if you need help email me.
