    I'm having a problem with adobe flash player and fedora 15


    Firefox won't recognize the installed plugin so my question is how can I uninstall flash player and reinstall it.
    P.S: I am new to Linux so I'd appreciate if you could break down the process for me.

    I would recommend to follow this:
    The Perfect Desktop - Fedora 15 i686 (GNOME) | HowtoForge - Linux Howtos and Tutorials

    As you already have fedora installed, it might get interesting starting with page 3.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.

    Hello and welcome!

    If the usual flash installation method doesn't work, an alternative installation option that works well and is often used is to download flash from adobe's website, then:

    - create a folder called "plugins" (if it doesn't already exist) in your /home/your_user_name/.mozilla folder
    - decompress the downloaded flash file
    - copy/move the file with the ".so" extension to the new plugins folder
    - restart firefox

    To un-install flash, simply rename the .so file, or remove it from the /.mozilla/plugins folder.
