    Hope it's okay if I join this thread.  I'm also new to SliTaz, ANY linux for that matter.
    I'm reasonably computer literate but not Linux literate yet.
    I also need to get the flash player installed and tried the above link.
    What I got back was seven lines of:

    wget: bad address ''

    I checked and rechecked my typing.
    Any suggestions?

    @Newbie : Open your SliTaz "Package Manager" and goto the tab-box "Configuration". Checking on "Mirror URL" box and if you (use SliTaz 3.0) see add-url something like this, change that add-url to and click "Setup" button x1 and click "Add" button x1 and "Exit". You must be connected to the internet to install the software packages.

    Looks like you just added the "/" to the end which it already had in my system (yes,3.0).

    Still not working.

    But thanks

    Try this in a terminal (sometime it's simpler from command line than using a GUI...). As root, install a script and then install flash, we do not provide a full package because flash is not open-source:

    # tazpkg get-install get-flash-plugin
    # get-flash-plugin

    If it dont work (it should realy work), you can download flash from adobe site, extract the archive and copy or move to your personnal hidden directory: ~/.mozilla/plugins

    If you want to make this installation available for every Slitaz user and not only the current one, you should also copy the file to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins and /usr/lib/firefox-[version]/plugins (where [version] is the version number of your installed Firefox browser).
    Please do not forget to modify the owner and group of the file at every place in /usr/lib where you copy it:
    (password of "root" account: "root" also if default)
    for dir in "/usr/lib/mozilla" "$(ls -d /usr/lib/firefox*)"; do cp -a "$dir/plugins" && chown -c root:root "$dir/plugins/"; done

Howdy, Stranger!
