Add Flash Player to Iceweasel and Mozilla Firefox in Linux
In this Article i will show you how can add Flash Player to Iceweasel and Mozilla Firefox in Linux (kali Linux).
Step 1: Go to http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/, select your system and select .tar.gz for other linux.
Step 2: Open terminal Go to path where flash is downloaded. In my case its downloaded in ‘Downloads’ directory. cd ~/Downloads.
Step 3: ‘ls’ to see flash player. In the below pic you can see with red marked arrow. copy that.
Step 4: tar -xvf your-flash-player-package.tar.gz . It will extract all of the thing to folder called ‘usr’ in same directory.
now u can see in red mark arrow ‘libflashplayer.so’ in same directory. we need to move libflashplayer.so to mozilla plugin directory.
Step 5: So we need to move libflashplayer.so to ~/.mozilla/plugins . if plugins directory is not there you need to create it and then move it.
mv ~/Downloads/libflashplayer.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/
Step 5: We need to copy the content of ~/Downloads/usr to /usr
cp -r usr/* /usr
Step 6: Open mozilla or iceweasel browser in address bar type ‘about:addons’ and enter. you will see a plugins menu at left, click on plugins. you will find shockwave flash. if its there your flash player is installed correctly else you have done some mistake in process.
Congrats your flash player is installed. Enjoy.
