    Post Installing flash player on Kali-Linux

    Hi,

    When I was opend Youtube it was asked me to install flash player. I downloaded it but i am unable to install it. Almost I searched for one hour. Finally I got it. Follow the bellow steps.

    1. Download flash player from http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

    2. Select version to download: .tar.gz for other Linux

    3. Click download and save it in root folder.

    4. Now unzip it by typing tar xzvf install_flash_player_11_linux.i386.tar.gz

    Thats it.

    Some,

    Thank you for your original post as I'm still some-what new to linux. Anyway, I followed your guide but my filename was a bit different so I put this into the console:

    tar xzvf install_flash_player_11_linux.x86_64.tar.gz

    And everything worked just fine.

    You forgot to let them know to follow with the command:

    cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

    This different method worked for me and was super simple

    I am new to Linux pretty much and this is how I installed flash to my Kali Linux.

    Well, this is how I installed Adobe. Open a terminal and type the following:

    Code:
    apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
    Let it do its thing, then type in terminal:

    Code:
    update-flashplugin-nonfree --install
    That's it! This method worked excellent for me but if I am misinforming someone please let me know asap. Not sure if this method I have given is avoided for some reason but I am not having any issues and can watch videos on YT and anywhere else on the interwebz. I am using IceWeasel Firefox browser.

    You missed a step. You need to copy the flash player file to Mozilla plugins, the command for this is shown in this full tutorial:

    What exactly does the command do? And if not followed, what do we stand to lose?
    Would appreciate your explanation on this so it can better be understood.
    Thanks

    yes you forgot this crucial step: cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

    @promanelka i think it is to make browser recognize the flash.

    This method worked fine for my ASUS laptop after a reboot.

    This used to work for installing flash. You could just apt-get install flash and YouTube would work. But now there are some audio issues where it just doesn't work. I think most of the issues have to do with pulse. How do you fix that? As in how do you make sound work with Youtube? Youtube doesn't work if you just install flash via apt and do nothing else. Oh yeah, and how do you make the mic work with things like tinychat. In principal it's nice to have full functionality in case you want to use it.

    For some reason apt would not install flash. I tried a few different methods and finally. This odd because I tried it on my last install and it didn't work. Now it seems to be fine. I really wish Adobe has better Linux support.

    Download flashplayer here:
    https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

    tar xvf install_flash_player_11_linux.x86_64.tar.gz
    cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
