How to install Flash Player 9 for Linux Ubuntu (6.06 / 6.10)

By | 2006/10/19

Flash Player 9 Beta for Linux was released earlier. A release is available for Windows, Mac and Linux platforms. Over the last five minutes I downloaded, installed and setup the Flash Player on my Ubuntu system. It is really simple. Note: This doesn’t qualify as “free software” (free as in freedom) but for those that want their flash goodness here is how its done.

  1. Download Installer for Linux (GZ, 2.48M) or visit the Adobe Labs
  2. Unpack the archive
  3. For Firefox: sudo cp /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/
  4. Done

If you’re using a different browser simply replace /usr/lib/firefox/ with the folder of your browser. So far, in my quick testing, Flash has worked like a charm.

Also, included in the archive is a readme.txt with more instructions for those that may not have root / sudo access. It can be installed per user or system wide.
