    Open a terminal and enter

    Code:
    su -
    cp /path/to/libflashplayer.so /usr/lib64/browser-plugins
    exit
    You'll be prompted for the root password.

    *or* open the main menu and go Applications > System > File Manager >
    File Manager - Super User Mode, then you will be asked for the root
    password, give it and be VERY careful while operating it (or anything)
    as root..

    the root powered file manager is much like whatever you might have used
    before to manage files...it has a dual pane mode, pick it and then side
    by side have the file you want to copy/move on one side and
    /usr/lib64/browser-plugins on the other....then just like always, drag
    and drop...you will be asked if you want to copy/move or link....i don't
    know which you want, but i guess move..

    BUT: the first question should be "Why are you not doing this task the
    way most folks do, by following the easier way here:
    http://tinyurl.com/68omn5o ??"

    you might be happy to find some other stuff good for folks new to
    openSUSE, here:
