Installing The Native Linux Flash Player 9 On Ubuntu
 
I have HUGE question on how to installing Flash player 9 in UBUNTU 6.06 LTS
I have read and flollow youre steps but I have these errors, can you please help me out? I jus got this PC and I am novice with Linux, nad i like to browse video. Thank you for taking your time in my interest.
here is my technical issue:

arturo@freekbox:~$ su
Password:
root@freekbox:/home/arturo# tar xvfz install_flash_player_9_linux_dev.tar.gz
tar: install_flash_player_9_linux_dev.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
root@freekbox:/home/arturo# tar xvfz install_flash_player_9_linux_dev.tar.gz

tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
root@freekbox:/home/arturo# cd install_flash_player_9_linux_dev.tar.gz

This what I follow from your tutorial page:

3.1 Install The .tar.gz Version

If you have downloaded the .tar.gz version of the Flash Player 9, open a command line terminal and install it like this:

cd /home/falko/Desktop/

(Replace /home/falko/Desktop with the path to the directory where you saved the Flash Player 9 .tar.gz.)

tar xvfz install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz
cd install_flash_player_9_linux/


Then run the setup script:

sudo ./flashplayer-installer

You will be asked a few questions:

I have done this too Falko I am not quite sure what it's but I did these
 
Ubuntu 6.06 LTS (Dapper Drake)
$ sudo -i
# wget http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get...9_linux.tar.gz
# tar zxvf install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz
# cd install_flash_player_9_linux/
# ./flashplayer-installer
# exit
Note that if you install flash in this manner, you will not automatically receive updates for Flash through Ubuntu's package manager.

falko 9th June 2009 16:56

Try this:
Code:

cd /home/arturo
wget http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz
tar xfz install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz
ls -la

What's the output of the last command?

Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash player.

I have re-start mY PC
however when I go to youtube or something similiar it gives me the error the JavaScript is turned off or I have an old version of flash? Any suggestions?
I use FireFox Web Browser

Note:
should I delete the one I down load to my desktop (flash Player 9)

Thank you!

exn 10th June 2009 10:33

Sorry but it's really looks like you just can't extract files from archive.

look

libflashplayer.so (10)

libflashplayer.so(9)


Just copy lybflashplayer.so to ~/.mozilla/plugins/ it must be looks almost like this:

HTML Code:

ls -l ~/.mozilla/plugins/

-rwxr-xr-x 1 exn exn 9543400 2009-02-03 06:03 libflashplayer.so
drwx------ 2 exn exn    4096 2009-05-28 05:51 moonlight

Try both versions of flash player, I think 10 will be work too ;)
