    Flash in CentOS-4


    I downloaded and installed the Adobe Flash Player via RPM.

    # rpm -qa | grep flash
    flash-plugin-9.0.31.0-release

    But neither Firefox nor Konqueror seem to have Flash capability.
    The instructions from Adobe are pretty simple. What can I do??

    It is not very difficult to enable flash player capability in firefox. Just go through README file and follow up with instruction.

    I installed via RPM. Did it put a README somewhere?
    Or do I need to grab the tarball to see what's inside?

    PluginDoc: Flash Player FAQ

    "How do I install Flash Player on Linux?"

    On Linux, download Flash Player 9. Once downloaded, copy libflashplayer.so to your Mozilla plugins directory and flashplayer.xpt to your Mozilla components directory.

    Detailed instructions would be:

    rpm -qa | grep flash

    This will give you the package name i.e. flash-plugin-9.0.31.0-release
    Next figure out where it is installed.....

    rpm -ql flash-plugin-9.0.31.0-release

    /usr/lib/flash-plugin
    /usr/lib/flash-plugin/LICENSE
    /usr/lib/flash-plugin/README
    /usr/lib/flash-plugin/homecleanup
    /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so
    /usr/lib/flash-plugin/setup
    /usr/share/doc/flash-plugin-9.0.31.0
    /usr/share/doc/flash-plugin-9.0.31.0/readme.txt

    Goto /usr/lib/flash-plugin and find libflashplayer.so

    Now you can either make a symlink in your firefox directory or just copy libflashplayer.so to it.

    The directory to copy libflashplayer.so too is normally under /usr/local/firefox/plugins
    You can check where firefox is installed with:
    whereis firefox

    Hope that helps.
