    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?
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    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.
