how to install adobe flash on firefox?
  • gabakgabak March 2010
    i want to watch some youtube videos so it say an error when i try to install the adobe flash that pop up on the firefox screen

    from terminal
    tazpkg get-install get-flash-plugin --forced

    I only used the --forced command because some have trouble with installing it sometimes.

    or manually install the flashplugin by downloading the source from adobe website (tried on Slackware, haven't tried yet on SliTaz)

    the easiest way is:
    tazpkg get-install get-flash-plugin  && get-flash-plugin

    the get-flash-plugin creates a pseudo-package that get installed by the script itself, so you can manage flash-plugin through tazpkg without having in your system files ignored by tazpkg

    This wil work for midori too

    NB. the doc page is now correct: -- I tested Cooking 20100314 (v3 RC) and flash-plugin- works perfectly and instantly in Firefox/Shiretoko, Midori & Opera; I tell you this so attention is hopefully given to the docs.

    go to macromedia flash and download flash source
    go to home and go to ./mozilla and create folder with the name plugins and copie the source here and thats all!! restart firefox

    thank you.

    the above post and this comment worked for me:

    tazpkg and the guide did not.

    i'm in 3.0 and i have the real wget installed. executing get-flash-plugin does not work because the script uses
    wget -s
    and the real wget does not know what
    to get the the script to work just replace in /usr/bin/get-flash-plugin every occurence of wget with
    busybox wget

    should i put this in the guide or this fix could go in official get-flash-plugin package?

    for what it's worth, works fine with SeaMonkey as well.

    @ernia Out of curiosity, why do you use the real wget command? Do you require some flag only avaliable in with it?

    Anyway the normal wget does have a flag -S which does the same thing as -s in busybox, but it would probably be better just to replace the -s in the scripts with --spider because this way the normal wget and the busybox function will know what to do respective of which one is being used by the user.

    your solution is better than mine and pretty straitghforward :-)
    i think that as far the real wget in in the repository slitaz's script should handle wget flags in a compatible way.
    i use the real wget because some script (i can't remember which one now, but not necessarily slitaz's script) was using a flag not avalaible in the busybox one.

    the script needing wget was winetricks

Howdy, Stranger!
