    Can some one please help me install Lightspark for firefox?


    Lightspark is a Adobe flash alternative for Linux and I would like to install it in firefox as a plugin. So far this is what I have found out about the installation process, but it does not work for firefox and it does not seem to replace Adobe on my Linux OS.

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sparkers/ppa
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install lightspark


    - Mozilla plugin :

    su -c 'yum install lightspark-mozilla-plugin --enablerepo=rpmfusion-free-updates-testing'


    Even after restarting my OS nothing happens, and the command line for the firefox plugin does not work.

    Hello and Welcome!

    You listed both yum and apt-get commands.
    What distro are you running?

    does
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install lightspark-mozilla-plugin
    work?
    Maybe you need to uninstall the Adobe plugin first?

    Well it seems like I overlooked something...the fact that lightspark is still in beta. I was busy doing other things on the computer and I forgot to check if this program was really active, well atleast now I know why its not working.
