This document assume that you have Mozilla up and running and
you wanted to have Shockwave Flash player plug-in to work with Mozilla Browser.
First, you need to download Shockwave Flash plug-in.
Go to http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/flash/english/linux/5.0r47/flash_linux.tar.gz
and download it to your user directory.For easier sake, I used ~/tmp/flash .
Go to your downloaded directory.
You should see flash_linux.tar.gz in the directory.
Now, you need to unpack the file. Do,
tar -xvzf flash_linux.tar.gz
That will create a directory called flash_linux
( or something like that ). Go to the directory.
You will see two files called " libflashplayer.so and ShockwaveFlash.class"
( plus a README file or two ). Copy those two files into Mozilla plug-in
directory ( YOU NEED TO BE SUPER USER TO DO THIS ).
cp libflashplayer.so ShockwaveFlash.class /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
That's it and you are done. Now, let's verify whether Mozilla recognize
your newly installed plug-ins.
Fire up your Mozilla browser, go to "Help" and then "About Plug-ins"
tab ( or ) press "Alt+H+P" keys on your keyboard. Mozilla should lunch
the plug-ins page and you should see yours there.
