    Exclamation how to instal flash player on debain amd 64


    i am new to linux. don't we much about linux. just instal linux debain few days ago. and i need install flash palyer
    i donwload flash player from the website"" install_flash_player_10_linux.deb""
    when opened with archice manager it would tell me ""Could not open "install_flash_player_10_linux.deb archive not supported.""

    i also type in root terminal"" sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree""

    Reading package lists... 11%

    Package flashplugin-nonfree is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    E: Package flashplugin-nonfree has no installation candidate

    after that i also typed

    sudo apt-get -f install
    sudo dpkg --configure -a
    and it don't work

    Debian doesn't have non-free software like adobe flash in their repos. You'd need to enable a third party repo from the Debian Multimedia project. Debian Multimedia Packages::Home

    For the downloaded .deb file you can either install a graphical program to help with them called gdebi or install from the command line as so
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i /path/to/install_flash_player_10_linux.deb
    Replace the /path/to with the actual path to the file.
