    How to install Flash, Simple steps!

    If you built your own custom iso / distribution, it is possible that Flash was left out. To install flash, first insure your sources.list is correct. http://wiki.debian.org/Derivatives/Census/Kali apt-get update.

    ** Edit, please use only the official repos, as the above will likely break your installation.
    http://docs.kali.org/general-use/kal...t-repositories

    To install flash issue these commands:
    Code:
    apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
    Optionally to update flash:
    Code:
    update-flashplugin-nonfree --install
    Enjoy!

    Sunkist, make sure you got all the right repos set in your source.list than do an:

    Code:
    apt-get update
    Afterwards see if it works.

    Step by Step walkthrough

    Sorry, but I need to put this here (OCD) to help people like me that enjoy explicit and consistent instructions.

    1.) Check that your repositories are correct
    Code:
    vi /etc/apt/sources.list
    File should look like this
    Code:
    deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali main non-free contrib
    deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali kali main non-free contrib
    deb http://security.kali.org/kali-security kali/updates main contrib non-free
    2.) Update everything first - insures any dependencies are cleared before install
    Code:
    apt-get update
    
    apt-get upgrade
    
    apt-get dist-upgrade
    3.) Get your Flash on
    Code:
    apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
    
    update-flashplugin-nonfree --install

    I get the E: error as well

    tried vi /etc/apt/sources.list and get the following

    #deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 7.0 _Kali_ - Official Snapshot i386 LIVE/INSTALL Binary 20130327-18:35]/ kali contrib main non-free

    tried apt-get update and get this:

    root@kali:~# apt-get update
    Reading package lists... Done
    root@kali:~# apt-get upgrade
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

    I don't think I have it pointing to the internet location, I am totally new to linux so I am not sure which simple step I am missing, something to do with pointing updates to an online location I assume.

    open a terminal, using the command: nano /etc/apt/sources.list

    Then simply copy and paste all the lines with deb in front of them.

    Hit control and O key to save the file. Control x to exit, then issue the command: apt-get update.
