    I think downloading the source would be much better, just extract flashpulgin to our browser, and it's done. But haven't tried yet on SliTaz, I was using manually install on Slackware...

    slitaz is different with those linux,
    use this:
    tazpkg get-install get-flash-plugin

    Hmmm.... Ok, I'll try it, it usually the same when we install manually. :D
    I have downloaded Firefox from it's official web, and it's still can't play youtube on the web because it's lack of plugin.
  • maxxmaxx March 2010
    that's it, I have done it. Here's what I do:
    - download Firefox from Mozilla Firefox
    - download flashplayer plugin from adobe website
    - extract Firefox to home folder
    - extract libflashplayer and copy: to Firefox/plugins.

    I can play youtube video now.

    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

    Slitaz is not based on other distro, as as far as i can understand. Tazpkg is Slitaz's package system and provides a way to convert packages from other distro:
    "tazpkg convert".
    If you want more info click "tazpkg manual" in this page:

    Hi all,

    With 3.0, one should be able to install flash player, just by doing:
     tazpkg get-install get-flash-plugin 

    Also 3.0 has a "watch video" .desktop file that will install get-flash-plugin automatically (if not found) along with mplayer and mplayer browser plugin for your multimedia demands.

    Hopefully, this will work out-of-the-box otherwise we fix the bug.

    EDIT: SliTaz is offcourse not based on any linux distribution. It's written from scratch. But you can convert packages from other distribution using tazpkg.

    So I misinform the base of SliTaz... thanks jozee for the info, I'll edit my blog post as I wrote that SliTaz based on Slackware (so I was wrong). Thanks again..

    Maybe you are "tux" user and not "root" (=administrator). So enter in the terminal

    "su" , then the password of root ... which is "root" as well

    then, simply enter the following line

    tazpkg get-install get-flash-plugin && get-flash-plugin

    You may wait for a little while and your connection to internet must work

Howdy, Stranger!
