    Install Flash Player for Iceweasel / Firefox in 3 Simple Steps

    I have seen some other related posts for installing flash player but mostly they are not working or people facing problems in installation. Now i am going to share the 3 easy steps to install the flash player in kali that works 100% for all.

    Step # 01
    Lauch the browser and download the Flash Player in a seperate folder.
    Download link = http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
    (Note: Version to download tar.gz for other Linux)

    Step # 02
    Launch the terminal and open the folder path where downloaded flash file is stored then run the following command.
    Code:
    tar xzvf install_flash_player_11_linux.i386.tar.gz
    or
    Code:
    tar xzvf install_flash_player_11_linux.x86_64.tar.gz
    If in case your downloaded file having some another name then put that file name during extracting
    Code:
    tar xzvf yourdownloadedfilename.tar.gz
    Step # 3
    Now run the following last command (Remember: Do not change the folder path stay in the same folder where you unpacked the files)
    Code:
    cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
    Congratulations! you got the flash player after all I tried my best to make the method simple and easy so that everybody understand. Hope it will help all. Thanks

    thanks for your point by the way it really becomes two steps if you are already having the downloaded file of Flash Player

    Kindly enter the correct file name as you see the error is Cannot Open: No such file or directory. Your downloaded file is having some other name try with other name and then tell me

    As a very beggining linux user i was stuck in same place as you, my problem was that i didnt understood "open the folder path" part. However after some experiments i found out that i need to use cd command to point out folder path.
    For example, u downloaded flash to brbl folder on desktop, then, u open terminal and input
    Code:
     cd Desktop/brbl/
    Thanks for author of the thread and sorry for poor english

    Yo, you could try this too.

    type in the terminal:

    apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree

    then

    update-flashplugin-nonfree --install

    and you're done.

    Evo's method is fool proof. Worked like a charm, thank you.
